Hard Work And Vision
Lake Nokomis began, and continues to be, a family owned and operated business. In 1973, Dave began as a hired hand on the farm located next to beautiful North Nokomis Lake, between Sugar Camp & Lake Tomahawk, WI. In 1977 after much hard work and vision, Dave purchased the farm naming it Lake Nokomis Cranberries. Since then, Dave has grown the farm from 50 to 320 producing acres, increasing the quality, quantity, and varieties of berries, as well as employee housing.
In 2010, Dave expanded his business by purchasing the marsh his Father started in the 1930's in Stone Lake WI. The Stone Lake marsh is now managed by his eldest son Dave Jr., and has 60 producing acres with plans for future expansion.
Purchased in 2015, the Sampson Marsh in Three Lakes WI is managed by Dave's youngest son Michael.
The gift shop has a new home, still located on the Lake Nokomis marsh property, but in a new and expanded location. The gift shop features gourmet foods, gifts, and our own Lake Nokomis wines. The onsite winery is producing wines made from our cranberries, four varieties are currently available, and more are in the works. Free wine tastings are offered daily.
The farm also produces Dave's Topsoil. Dave began selling topsoil in 1977 and has become one of the largest providers of topsoil in the area. It is true black dirt, local people love this dirt for gardening & landscaping projects. Contact us for more info!
