"I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all." -Laura Ingalls Wilder
We are a small family farm in southwestern Wisconsin. Located in the Driftless region, known for its natural beauty, rare goat prairies, world class trout fishing, and the scenic Mississippi River Valley. We raise our family and livestock with an emphasis on sustainability and the environment.
We have a lot going on at the farm, but would love to hear from you .
It was our lifelong dream to reside in the Driftless region. There are many natural wonders and fantastic people in our midst. Check out some of the organizations that share our commitment and vision.
“There are two spiritual dangers in not owning a farm. One is the danger of supposing that breakfast comes from the grocery, and the other that heat comes from the furnace." Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac
"What is a farm but a mute gospel? The chaff and the wheat, weeds and plants, blight, rain, insects, sun- it is a sacred emblem from the first furrow of Spring to the last stack which the snow of winter overtakes in the fields." Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Once you have lived on the land, been a partner with its moods, secrets, and seasons, you cannot leave. The living land remembers, touching you in unguarded moments, saying, "I am here. You are part of me." When this happens to me, I go home again, in mind or in person, back to a hilltop world in southwestern Wisconsin." Ben Logan, The Land Remembers
"Of the many advantages of farm life for boys one of the greatest is the gaining a real knowledge of animals as fellow-mortals, learning to respect them and love them, and even to win some of their love." John Muir, The Story of My Boyhood and Youth
"It is the experiences, the memories, the great triumphant joy of living to the fullest extent in which real meaning is found." Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
"A taste for the beautiful is most cultivated out of doors." Henry David Thoreau, Walden
“A farm has its own spirituality that gives immense meaning and pleasure. It can't be measured in acres or the quantity of animals and crops. A farm is a spiritual thing that feeds your soul, as its spirituality pours out of every outbuilding and bale of hay. Nothing is more tangible and sensuous than a farm, and yet it is also full of spirit." Sir Thomas Moore
