Interview with Shawn Bula
With headquarters in Coloma, Bula-Gieringer Farms is one of the largest potato and vegetable operations in Wisconsin. The farm raises over 8,700 acres of potatoes, green beans, seed corn, sweet corn, peas, field corn, soybeans and sweet potatoes. In addition to those crops, they also raise 500 head of Black Angus cattle on 1,100 acres of pasture land. To keep things running smoothly, the farm owns 31 semis.
Bula-Gieringer Farms was founded in 1980 when Mark Bula formed a partnership with Mark Gieringer. The farm has land in Adams, Waushara, Marquette, Jackson, La Crosse and Trempealeau counties. They also rent land in the Hastings, Florida area, raising chipping potatoes to help fill a supply gap from mid-April to early June.
