Three generations, five plants and 60 years ago...
Our story began when brothers Louis, Francis and Greg Wysocki partnered with their father on his small dairy farm and converted the operation to a potato farm. At that moment in the late 1950s, Wysocki Farms was born. Over the years, the farm began to expand the Central Wisconsin operation started taking shipments of potatoes to market in Chicago, and the brothers learned new and innovative ways to store and pack potatoes.
30 years later
Thirty years and a few partnerships with other local farmers like Nick Somers of Plover River Farms and Jeff Sommers later, Wysocki Farms grew into the premier potato and onion producer we know today.
Fast forward to 2020
Now, the second and third generations of the Wysocki and Sommers families are following in the footsteps of their fathers. The operations have expanded to include growing regions throughout the country, and a few more farm families have been thrown into the mix, but the core principles that began 60 years ago still drive the company: grow quality produce for our family and yours.
