Welcome to Heartland Fresh Family Farm! We’re thrilled you’re here. Our family farm is located in the rolling hills of southeast Iowa, and is operated by myself, my wife Leslie, our son, Lauren, and our daughter Grace, with some help from our Border Collie, Socks, a pack of felines led by a large tomcat named Rascal, and four horses.
My wife and I are both natives of southeast Iowa and we have been involved in agriculture our entire lives; our children represent the fifth generation of farmers on the land. Most of our livestock graze rich pasture nearly all of their lives. We use no antibiotics, no hormone implants, no chemical fertilizers or herbicides on any of our pastures or produce.
As stewards of the land, we believe that nature provides the best pattern to follow to produce food for your table and as a result we take a sustainable, non-industrial approach to this noble profession. Nature is all about diversity and pastured livestock and poultry allow us to heal the land, create healthy soil, and healthy food with nutritional superiority.
Anyone is welcome to visit our farm at any time. We love to use the farm as a classroom to teach as many visitors as possible about sustainable agriculture and what a healthy food system really looks like. Tours are welcome and we are available to host large group dinners and no group is too large.
Thanks so much for considering our farm as a destination for your family or group and as a source of safe, healthy, and wholesome food for your family.
Hurry on out to visit us or just give us a call to chat.
We want to be your farmer!
