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, and Sarah Beth formerly did before choosing to spend more time at home with the family and work as a part-time reporter and columnist for the local paper.
Someday we dream of becoming potential foster or adoptive parents also. We don’t think our home will ever be an empty nest, but we’ll just have to see what God might do and how he might use our humble homestead for His purposes!
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 organically-supplemented.
We currently have a small flock of pastured sheep for meat, with butchered cuts available, and are now in the process of beginning to milk sheep for making wholesome milk and cheese products. Currently we sell varieties of cheese through the Wisconsin Sheep Dairy Cooperative. Our newest sheep milk soaps are now available from our first milking adventures of 2021!
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.
There are also a lot of exciting expansion projects in the works for 2022 and 2023 and on!
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)
