Most people have heard of the benefits of eating in a "farm to table" fashion. We farm because we have realized that "farm to table" doesn't get much more real than raising it, processing it, and cooking it yourself. While not everyone is called to be a farmer, we believe that everyone should dine in a farm to table way and know where their food comes from, and know the PEOPLE producing the things they eat!
We farm because we also LOVE the fact that we can nourish and improve the diets of other people! Offering what we grow to you and knowing that you are benefiting nutritionally from the things we raise, grow, and make is a joy that I cannot over-emphasize! When you purchase something from our family's farm, whether it be meat, dairy, eggs, vegetables, fruit, or wholesome body products, it sends a thrill through our entire family letting us know three things: that you also understand the value of a good diet and healthy lifestyle, that you appreciate our hard work in bringing you the best possible product, and that we can push forward with joy and excitement to another season to produce more fresh products to serve more people, like you, who care where their food comes from.

We hold our farming history dear. The men and women of the past are our heroes. We strive hold high and carry forward our banner; to make our farming forefathers proud; to return nutrients to our land and animals and most importantly the diets of the people around us.
These pictures are from only three generations ago... I hope you enjoy looking through some pictures of the men of the past who shaped our present.
