We are dedicated to the honest, no-compromise production of top quality healthy food. Our mission is to naturally produce awesome tasting food that is nutrient-dense and health building while restoring the environment. By working with God's creation, instead of against it, we produce food that makes the store stuff taste like cardboard.
Our animals are fed a strict ORGANIC and Non-GMO diet, pastured year round and never treated with drugs or chemicals. We use gentle handling, wise system design, and natural methods to prevent problems and heal livestock.
Grassfed Raw Dairy (Real Milk)
Our raw milk, cheese, butter, cream, yogurt, kefir, and colostrum come from grassfed dairy cows. This food is high in health building Omega-3's and CLA's. This is because our cows are raised and milked year round in their natural pasture environment using rotational grazing, low stress handling techniques, and low to no grain.
We are taking new customers! Our growing herd of dairy cattle calve year round and so we rarely run out of milk.
Our no-compromise dairy is focused on producing the healthiest, most nutrient dense food possible. We pasture year round and the cows are never confined. We only use traditional heritage breeds giving rich milk. We never use any pharmaceuticals, rBGH or other growth hormones on our dairy cows. We're also working back towards 100% grassfed production. We were grain free until the drought hit and pasture alone could no longer support good health. We fed only as much Non-GMO AND organic grain as is necessary to balance the nutrition in the grass while the pastures on our new farm improve. We feed for health not to push production.
In addition to the cow dairy we're investigating adding a small number of dairy goats to the farm to fill an ecological niche and provide raw goats milk and chevre. Email for details.
Organically Fed, Pastured Heritage Pork
Our organically fed, heritage breed, Gloucestershire Old Spots pigs are raised naturally and humanly on pasture without chemicals or nose rings. Their strictly organic diet is made up of a combination of pasture, hay, fodder crops, grassfed dairy by-products from our own dairy, and locally grown organic grains. This unique combination of rare genetics and quality diet make for exquisite tasting pork. Our pigs are never confined and born on pasture. We do not use farrowing crates.
100% Grass-fed/Grass-finished Beef
Our 100% grassfed, naturally raised cattle that have spent their entire life on pasture. They have been fed only pasture, local hay, and non-grain forage crops and never any concentrates or grain sprouts. Like all our animals they are handled using low-stress techniques. The result is healthy, tasty beef high in Omega-3's and CLA's.
We are currently taking orders for Bulk Freezer Beef by the split-side, side, or whole. This is a live animal sale, delivered to the butcher for you, and cut according to your custom specifications to get beef how you like it.
Organically Fed, Pastured Whole Chicken
Our chickens are raised on pasture and only fed locally grown organic grains. We raise slower growing broiler breeds that take 12 to 16 weeks to reach butcher weight. Why? Slower growth means better flavor and avoids the health issues of the sickly Cornish cross birds found in most grocery stores and farmers markets. These wonderful tasting chickens are a nice balance of leg, thigh, and breast meat. We feed a custom mix feed without any added pharmaceuticals or arsenic. Folks regularly praise the exceptional taste and quality of our chicken.
Our chicken is available two ways: by a la carte ordering or our Chicken CSA. Visit our chicken page to learn more about our awesome tasting chicken and how to order. Do not delay, these will sell out well before butcher!
Pastured Chicken Eggs
Our acclaimed eggs are from our very small flock of pastured hens. These chickens spend their life on pasture foraging for bugs, seeds, and grass. They are supplemented with locally grown organic grain, organic mineral supplements to ensure nutritious eggs for your family.
Some stores sell eggs from 'vegetarian' chickens. But that is not their natural diet and is only possible if kept confined in cages or barns. Our heritage hens live on pasture year 'round eating a natural diet, including bugs and earthworms, to produce eggs of exceptional quality.
Pastured Duck & Duck Eggs
We keep a small flock of heritage breeds ducks. Our ducks roam the farm foraging and keeping the farm clear of ticks, chiggers, and mosquitoes while producing exquisite eggs and meat. Their diet is supplemented with locally grown organic grain.
We'll be taking orders soon for our spring batch of ducks. Learn more on our Visit our poultry page.
Duck eggs are richer and fuller tasting than most chicken eggs. We've been told these taste like chicken eggs used to taste. They are also soy and corn free.
Goose Meat & Eggs
In the spring we have a limited quantity of goose eggs available. (March - May)
We're taking names for the waiting list for '15 whole dressed goose. Given sufficient demand we'll do a batch of these.
In addition to the above products we carry many other items including raw honey, rabbit, hand-made knitted socks and more.

Tours / Business Hours
We do not have a farm store nor business hours; all orders and deliveries are coordinated online.
We have recently relocated our farm from Linwood, KS to a homestead near Fort Scott, KS. Life is crazy busy building a farm from scratch and we are not generally available for farm tours. Our newsletter regularly has pictures of our farm and animals. Fort Scott is a quick hour drive south from Overland Park on US 69. You can get our products monthly and sometimes weekly at various drop locations in the Kansas City metro area and beyond.
