Online Store and Farmers Market Page COMING SOON!!!!
We are a family owned small farm operation. We raise our livestock on a 5 acre farm in Ashland, WI. Producing great pasture raised poultry, pork, beef, lamb, goat and so much more! Our dream has origins out of California. After Rusty’s contract ended with the USMC, we found great joy in producing our own food. We raised pork, lamb, chickens, ducks and everything in between. But producing food in the desert was very challenging. After 3 years we were able to partner with a retiring farm in Minnesota.
So, we packed up our livestock, our home and made the trip! We learned a lot about livestock managing from the farm help in Minnesota but our view points were too unorthodox for the old farmer. We wanted to have our chickens free range! To see our ducks on a pond! Have the hogs in a communal setting....
So we moved again. This time onto raw land! Completely undeveloped and wooded! We jumped feet first into this endeavor and so far it’s been great! Our poultry free range. Our hogs live in a communal setting and raise young together. We are far from done at the farm. Every day we have land clearing, building, livestock care and so much more. But we love what we do!
PS: Please excuse the mess as we build our dream.
