Skelly's Farm Market
2713 S Hayner Road
Janesville, WI 53548
Established in 1845 & 1989
Since the Skelly family began farming in the Janesville area more than 150 years ago, they have raised most of the traditional regional animals and crops from cows and corn to sows and soybeans. But when 5th generation farmer Tom Skelly planted four rows of sweet corn around his house in 1989 to help his three kids save for college, he never imagined that the Skelly farm would see such dramatic changes in the next twenty years.
Today, the Skellys are no longer dairy farmers, but their dairy barn is still filled with lots of excitement as it holds a retail store, bakery, and gift shop for Skelly's Farm Market. Skelly's is one of the largest providers of fresh produce in Southern Wisconsin that is sold directly to the consumers. Joe and Scott are now a part of the operation making the sixth generation to farm in this area. With three seasons including strawberries, summer, and fall, there is always excitement at Skelly's Farm Market.
|June||7:00 - 5:00||Strawberries|
|July - Mid September||9:00 - 6:00||Summer Produce|
|Mid-September - October||9:00 - 6:00||Pumpkins & Fall|
