Jim and Caite started the process of taking over Jim's family farm in 2014. As we looked at more ways to make the farm self-sustaining we decided to move more toward grass-fed livestock. The gentle hills of our part of the Driftless region in Northeast Iowa mean that most of our acreage is far more suitable for pasture than for putting in row crops.
Currently we are raising a cow-calf herd and herd of Katahdin ewes and lambs on pasture. We find that raising our livestock outside and on grass gives us a high quality product without relying on artificial hormones or growth promotants.
