Good food

We dedicate most of our farming resources to raising cattle, sheep, and chickens in Howard County, Indiana. We have a small vegetable garden for personal consumption although we do sell the surplus, and we also farm minimal acres in wheat and corn for our chickens and hay for feeding our cattle and sheep when it’s too cold to graze. For our families we have apple and cherry trees, red and black raspberry bushes, a grape arbor, herb garden, and a flower garden for fresh bouquets.

Cattle

We raise our own breed of certified organic cattle—a blend of Devon and Holstein—and rotationally graze them across 35 acres April-November. Babies stay with their mamas for the first nine to twelve months of their lives. Females are raised to add to the cow-share raw milk herd and males are groomed for our dinner. A limited amount of beef cuts—soup bones to filet mignon—are available year-round in the farm store.

Lamb

Our sheep flock, a cross between Cheviot and Katahdin breeds, is fairly self-maintaining. The sheep are 100% grass-fed and aren’t given any hormones or antibiotics just like the cattle. They roam pastures year-round with winter access to bedded stalls, especially for winter lambing. Lamb meat prices start at $6.00/lb, available by the piece. Meat is generally available year round in the farm store.

eggs

Many farm guests are greeted by our heritage breed chickens—both Delaware and Patridge Chantecler—as they scratch through our pastures (and flower beds and lawns and gardens) munching a savory diet of yogurt, corn & wheat (no soy!), grubs, and wild mice (chickens are omnivores!), making the egg yolks a vibrant orange due to all the Vitamin A! Eggs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and sell out quickly.

Learning together

Together we are called to a life of learning - learning how to care for our bodies, minds, and souls, and how to cultivate greater appreciation and care for the earth and her inhabitants, for the Glory of God. As we keep learning, let us share the knowledge with you. Contact us for workshops, events, or wellness conversations.

Not just one family biz

While each of us in our family can get oddly excited to learn about new old wheat varieties (Einkorn anyone?) or watching a new sheep bah its way into the world, we also have individual passions driving our side hustles to support our farming gig. Zack, age 22, manages Reishus Farm and Feed Supply. Maggie dabbles part-time in professional photography and is in training for Spiritual Direction. Jeff works full-time remotely for a technologies business developing and selling grow lights. Click the images below to learn about their off-farm work and support their efforts!
