WHAT WE DO
We take a holistic approach to farming, which means we value diversity in our environment. We use natural methods to raise animals on pasture, and grow a number of different vegetables and flowers in our cutting garden. Rotational grazing and growing allow us to nurture the soil and keep our farm healthy.
This year we will be raising meat chickens, pigs, cattle, and turkeys. We use rotational grazing with our chickens and steers, moving to fresh pasture every few weeks. Our broad breasted bronze turkeys , raised for Thanksgiving, have a large area for roaming. The pigs are also kept in a large outdoor area. We supplement feed for our animals with grain from Napolean Mill, except for the cattle which are grass fed. There are no hormones or antibiotics in our meat.
Our farm is located on 10 acres in the Grass Lake area, and we are lucky enough to have a barn and house on site. We love to experiment with growing different vegetables and flowers, while keeping large areas in pasture for grazing and haymaking. The owners, Taik and Stephanie, have been farming for about 5 years.
PORK, BEEF AND CHICKEN MEAT CSA
We have a meat CSA that runs from June through November. See the CSA section for more details.
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. CSA members pay upfront at the beginning of the year for a season’s worth of meat. Throughout the year they receive meat packages at regular intervals. CSAs emphasize the community aspect of farming. There is a strong relationship between the farmer and the CSA members, who are closely involved in the process of producing their food.
OTHER PURCHASING OPTIONS
We sell individual chickens or cuts of pork that can be ordered by contacting us directly. This summer you may also find us at Chelsea Farmers Market on Saturday mornings, and Howell Farmers Market on Sundays.
