Extended Summer Hours Coming Soon!
Beginning Friday June 10 The Farm Store will open from 2-6 pm through August
Currently, I'm in charge of making home deliveries every Thursday.

Often the route takes me through one of the many new developments around Springfield. Tucked back amidst Pinterest-worthy new builds, I'll often notice an old barn or farm house.

50 Years ago a working farm, today a relic.

Seven years ago Ian & I stood with a realtor in the shadows of four large blue silos looking out over a vacant & overgrown old dairy farm.

More than relics, these silos were headstones.

The once-thriving farm died a slow death as milk prices plummeted, the owners aged and the children left the farm, never to return. Carved up and sold at auction, the farm sat unoccupied for years, save for cattle grazing the pastures.
According to the USDA, the average American farmer is 57 years old. Only 8% of all U.S. farmers are 35 or younger. 

50 Years from now, will our grandchildren have the choice to buy from a small farm in their community?

Will small family farms still exist?

When YOU purchase directly from our small farm, your dollar goes towards us building a thriving farm business that my kids would be excited to take over.

Because of YOUR purchase, our farm might survive to feed future generations.

50 Years from now, your grandkids could buy from this farm that my grandkids are still operating.

Now wouldn't that be something.

Your (35 year old) farmer,
PS - Supporting a small business isn't just about exchanging dollar bills. Telling a friend or leaving a review helps small businesses like ours grow.

Beef Stir Fry Strips - Pre-sliced strips from the round, like our popular Sirloin Steak Fajita Strips but leaner and more affordable.

On the Farm

Our newest group of meat chickens moved into their big pen this week where they access an automatic water system. Fresh water comes out when the bird pecks at the red plastic part. As baby chicks they aren't large enough to reach or peck with enough strength to use the automatic water system, so we water them by hand with smaller trough-type waters they can dip their beaks into.

From Kassi's Kitchen

Pictured is a stovetop pasta that came together quickly, with pea and bacon. For the times when a whole strip of bacon isn't needed, a package of Bacon Bits & Ends is an affordable way to add a bacon component to a dish, like Cobb Salad, homemade baked beans or a Quiche Lorraine. As the bacon is sliced and packaged at the butcher shop, these leftover chunks are packaged separately so not an ounce of bacon-y goodness goes to waste.
