meet the team
We are three young farmers dedicated to growing nourishing food with sustainable management. Together we share a wide breadth of skills and a vision of farming full time in a more sustainable food system.
Dylan has organic veggies in his bones: born and raised in southwest Wisconsin on Dog Hollow Farm, an organic CSA, he spent a lot of time in the fields growing up. Dylan left the farm for Chicago and then Los Angeles, working his way through the food system (with a smattering of gigs in stage carpentry and electrics) and then getting a BA in Biology and Theater from Occidental College. After graduating, Dylan was drawn back to Wisconsin by promises of good food, tangible seasons, friendly neighbors, and cheese. He’s a big fan of cheese. Since moving back Dylan has been working at the UW-Madison Organic and Sustainable Research and Extension lab managing vegetable trials. Finally his heart called him back to the home farm, and with the help of good friends, Circadian Organics was born.
Skye grew up on the East Coast (Richmond, Virginia and Philadelphia, PA), went to school at Occidental College on the West Coast, and is now happy to have found in a magical place between. She lived in Madison for the summers of 2015 and 2016 before moving there in 2017. In college she studied biology, ran the student vegetable garden, worked in Campus Dining and Sustainability, and served food at a local restaurant. Now, she is an entomology masters student at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Skye aims to have a positive impact on sustainable land use and be a part of a movement to identify methods of farming in harmony with the land. When she is not farming, she loves to go on hikes and observe wildlife, practice her archery skills, take photos, spend time with friends and family, and play with dogs.
Keegan was born in the central corn belt plains of Illinois, but moved to the Driftless area in 1999, a pivotal moment in his life. Since then, he has immersed himself in the world of horticulture, both through his vocation and hobbies, always with a core value of organic and sustainable methods in mind. He has worked for several years in position as an orchard consultant and arborist, pruning and providing insight on recommended practices for fruit production in the midwest. In 2011 he moved to California where he pursued his passion for medical cannabis on a number of farms, focusing on high end boutique production methodology. When Keegan isn't in the field, he enjoys cooking, reading, woodworking, mechanics and pickles: lots of pickles. He harbors a life long love of plants. It's a match made in heaven!
We’d be remiss not to express our gratitude for the many teachers we’ve had along the path, and those mentors that still help us now. We’re particularly grateful to Sara Tedeschi, Dylan’s mom and first and most important teacher, who still offers frequent and much needed help on the farm.
