Our Standards


Antibiotic-Free - What it means to our farm.

We do not use antibiotics when raising our animals. We instead use

management skills to treat and prevent illnesses. We give our animals

plenty of space to roam, vaccinations, clean water, and dry, clean bedding.

We use a pasture rotation system to allow the pastures rest and regenerate,

ridding the land of any harmful bacteria or bugs, which also promotes

healthy regrowth of grasslands.


Non-GMO - What it means to our farm.

If we offer a supplement diet beyond the ability to forage, we

grind all of our own feed from grains that have not been genetically

modified.


Pasture-Raised - What is means to our farm.

All of our animals are raised outdoors and given the ability to live in their natural habitat.

Quality You Trust

The quality of food you eat correlates to the quality of care needed for production. We at Jake’s will always lead with this in mind, whether it comes to the taste of the meat on your plate, or the highest humane standards we implement while raising animals on our farm. We believe each detail matters when creating life-sustaining products for you.

Testimonials

We have been purchasing Jake's products for several years, and it is always consistent. Everything is bar none. Their spicy Italian sausage is king in my Italian kitchen. We've purchased sausage from the best mom & pop Italian delis around the city, and Jake's beats them all. The hickory bacon is so good. So is the chicken. Truly quality.

Love Jake's country store. The pork is so delicious. Everything we have tried has been so flavorful. Smoked chops, bacon, brats, sausage patties bulk are so tasty that once you taste it you will never go back to grocery store brands. And it's grown and processed right here in the area.

Your turkey was great. I'd even say it was the best one that we've ever gotten from you. :) See you at the market in the spring and maybe at one of the other drop offs in the winter.

The bone in pork loin roast was delicious! Very flavorful, tender and juicy. I would definitely buy again. I’m glad you have it available.

What a treat to cut a half hog in my home, this has always been something my husband and I have wanted to do. It worked out really well, my old skills came back to me without much mess or stress. I was able to break down most of the half in the window of my son's nap this afternoon, it felt like everything went our way today. A big thing to share is that the pork is just beautiful. I still don't know what breed you raise, is it berkshire? I felt honored to cut such a nicely processed side. There were times at the shop where the hogs would come in bloody and broken. Handling the side assured me whoever does your processing, really cares and takes pride in their work. Driving to the farm today was gorgeous as well, and a relaxing break from being with my toddler all day. All and all it was really meaningful for me to see where the pigs spend their time. The farm is impressive, it's so cool how many communities the farm serves! Looking forward to the next side in spring, we are curious to see how long this 85 pounds lasts.

"I grew up on a small farm downstate. We raised hogs, chickens, beef, and all of our own vegetables. In the fall, when the hogs were butchered, the first dish cooked with the fresh meat was neck bones simmered in sauerkraut and sliced onions, adding either caraway seeds or juniper berries. The seeds or berries add subtle flavors that take the dish from bland to perfect. Potato pancakes with sauteed apples were served as a side. My cooking friends have never had kraut with neck bones, although all eat both sauerkraut and pork. So, social distancing in place, I plan to share a childhood memory this weekend."

I have been a Jake’s customer for about ten years, and really appreciate the quality of their products and the variety too! Our favorite over the years has been the brats and bacon, and the porkchops. We especially like that Jake’s animals eat in a natural setting, without GMO feed. That is very important to us.

I have bought products from Jake's country meats for several years. It would be hard to pin down just one product that is my favorite, so I won't do that. I will say that I have almost never been disappointed in any product. The smoked meats have just the right balance of salt and smoke, fresh meats are just that -- fresh and tasty. You can even get recipes that give great ideas for using these products. Nate and LouAnn, and their family are wonderful people to know.
