Directions and Information On Visting
We are located about 8 miles west of Monroe, WI. We welcome visitors and customers. Lamb and chicken are available year round at the farm. Produce and cut flowers are available seasonally. For printable text based directions, click here. We strongly encourage you to use our directions, as Mapquest and Yahoo directions are not very good.
Our sheep are raised on pasture and roam freely and happily about. They are well cared for, often very spoiled and enjoy plenty of space and room to roam. Mom’s eat grass only, except for about a month before lambing begins and they get a very small ration of grain for strength. Lambs also roam freely on pasture, receiving grain as youngsters just to build their strength.
We raise a variety of chicken breeds. All are received as day old baby chickens. They spend their first 3 weeks in a brooder room which is heated to about 90 degrees. Following that, they eat pasture and roam freely in a very, very large fenced area. We only put a fence around to keep predators out, not really to keep chickens in. They have plenty of space and pasture to eat.
We grow produce for our preservation kitchen including: Apples, Asparagus, Beans, Beets , Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Cabbage, Carrots, Chard, Corn, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Fresh Herbs, Garlic, Kale, Kohlrabi, Leeks, Lettuce & Greens, Melon, Okra, Onions, Peas, Peppers, Potatoes, Pumpkins, Radish, Raspberries, Rhubarb, Shallots, Spinach, Squash, Strawberries, Summer & Winter Squash, Tomatoes, Tomatillos, Turnips.
How We Raise Animals:
We chose to raise animals because we are meat eaters. We wanted to know where our food was coming from, how is was treated and what it was eating. Every animal on our farm is treatly humanely, often times we give more attention to their needs than our own. They are free to roam about. Free to eat grass. They eat local, non GMO grains when appropriate. Our chickens and hens are kept in large pastures with fencing around so they don’t disappear and so they are not eaten by predators. All have ample room to roam, frolic and sunbathe. Their housing is cleaned out weekly. Our animals are treated well.
