Don and Jane Wienke bought their 40-acre farm in 1966, back when it was still a cherry orchard. Both their mothers canned and preserved the fruits and vegetables, mainly strawberries, cherries and tomatoes.
That’s where the idea for Wienke’s Market was born. The company they started, Wienke’s Market, is a family-owned farm market located in Door County.
The family runs a canning kitchen where the process more than 120 products including pickles, sauerkraut, jams and pie fillings.
They maintain an estimated 20 acres worth of fresh produce gardens, where they grow strawberries, raspberries, rhubarb, asparagus, cucumbers, peppers, green beans, beets, squash, sweet corn, potatoes and tomatoes, among other things.
Wienke’s Market has been in business since 1967. It’s been a year-round operation since 1990 when they insulated the 100-year-old barn where the store is located.
“What ingredients you see on the labels, are exactly what we put in them, and I sometimes say ‘a little bit of love!’ said Don and Jane’s daughter, Sigrid Slaby, the company’s manager. “Our canning girls work hard. From slicing the cucumbers to jarring, everything is done by hand.”
