locally grown and made, pastured, chicken, lamb, eggs, cheese, soap & other good things
We have a variety of growing experience and now operate from our 10-acre farm in Northwestern Wisconsin.
Some fun things about us:
We have 7 children – and yes they are all ours after being married over 19 years now.
During a season in our lives as independent contractors while we had 6 children, we lived in 11 places in 8 years before we landed here in Frederic.
We have a lot of animals, and dream of more! In addition to taking care of our homestead, like a lot of farmers, we work too. Josh works as a mentor for the state of Wisconsin helping people coming out of addiction or who might have mental health needs of all ages, but primarily young boys and teens. Sarah Beth formerly did mentoring as well before choosing to spend more time at home with the family and work as a part-time reporter and columnist for the local paper, the Inter-County Leader.
We have ranger variety meat chickens, with USDA processed whole chickens and leg / breast quarters for sale.
We also have free-ranging layer chickens, producing delicious farm fresh eggs. Both are pastured and supplemented with local high-quality feed from Atlas Co-Op.
We currently have a growing flock of pastured sheep for meat, with butchered cuts available, and are now to milk sheep for making wholesome milk products. Currently we sell varieties of cheese through the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative. Our sheep milk soaps made from our own milk are now available!
There are also a lot of exciting expansion projects in the works for 2023 and on!
We are available for delivery or local pickup. Give us a call or text to 715-733-1117 (Sarah) or 651-350-8379 (Josh) to set up. You can also stop the homestead at 3417 90th St, Frederic, WI 54837. We are closed on Sundays.
We sell meat, soap and cheese on site at the homestead and at the two farmer’s markets we attend in the summertime, Thursdays at the Perlick’s Distillery in Sarona, WI, and Saturdays at the Spooner Farmer’s Market at the Washburn County Fairgrounds.
We’ve also expanded to sell soap in to 2 retail locations in 2022, one at the Log Cabin Resort in Trego, WI, and another at the Gateway Gourmet in Bruce, WI.
Why You’ll Love Us
We love God and farming. Over the years we have done a variety of growing techniques and animal care. As a family, we enjoy teaching our children and others what we know. Hopefully you’ll enjoy joining us on our learning journey as a family too. There has never been a better time to eat locally!
- Affordable (We love fresh, homegrown, nutritious meals that you can feel good eating and feeding yourself and those you care about)
- Ethical (We are a cage-free operation. We grow out our animals and keep them with care in environments that allow them to move and behave the way they were meant to)
- Sustainable (Sheep are very good at eating plants other animals won’t and take up less pasture space than other meat and dairy animals)
- Family Owned and Operated (translate Made With Love and whole bunch of fun)
