We are a small family farm located in Waterloo, Wisconsin, about 25 miles from Madison. We raise happy, healthy hereford grassfed beef, pasture-raised chicken and free range hens.  All of our animals are raised without the use of chemicals, vaccinations, sprays or hormones.

The way we farm was quite accidental. We bought a 150 acre farm in 1988 and rented it out to the neighbor who planted corn and soybeans. Kris was an art teacher and Dan was a computer programmer working in Madison. At the time we didn’t think a thing of it. Then in 2010 we watched the movie Food, Inc., and that’s when our lives changed forever. We realized we were a part of the problem, not a part of the solution, so we very politely asked our farmer friend to leave and we began transforming those cornfields into grass and fences and then we added cows and chickens, very happy cows and chickens!

We understand that your life is busy, but you still want healthy food for your family and you want to know where your food comes from. Come visit our farm and see our happy cows grazing on grass and free and happy chickens running around feeding on bugs.  Some may even greet you as you come out of your car!  We run our animals through large pastures letting them do what they were created to do – graze and fertilize – which converts to healthier soil, healthier animals, and eventually, healthier people. 🙂
