The Farm - Since the 1870’s, we have been working the same land for seven generations in Cass County, Michigan. Spread over three homesteads plus hundreds of acres of cropland, we employ environmentally sound management practices for the fields and forest that help build the foundation for a sustainable farm.
The Animals - Jake's specializes in raising heritage breed animals outside - on pasture and in barns with straw and hay for bedding. This allows the animals to enjoy grazing on grasses and alfalfa, or foraging in the woods on berries and nuts. We grind our own feed that includes our farm-grown, GMO-free, corn and soybeans with a closely monitored diet of vitamins and minerals. Animals are never treated with antibiotics and our farm is certified by the internationally known organization - Animal Welfare Approved (AWA). Currently pigs (Berkshire and Duroc), chickens (Cornish Cross), turkeys (Broad-breasted Whites), goats (Boer), and 100% grass-fed cattle (Scottish Highland) graze on the farm.
