We specialize in raising heritage breed animals outdoors, on pasture.

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. This allows the animals to enjoy grazing on grasses and alfalfa, or foraging in the woods on berries and nuts. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed from start-to-finish. Our pigs and chickens forage the grasslands and are given non-gmo feed that we grind and grow ourselves. Our farm is certified by the internationally known organization - A Greener World Organization. We are certified Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) and certified Grass-fed yearly. Currently pigs (Berkshire and Duroc), chickens (Cornish Cross), turkeys, goats, and 100% grass-fed cattle graze on the farm.

  • Antibiotic-Free

    We do not use antibiotics when raising our animals. We instead use management skills to treat and prevent illnesses by giving them plenty of space to roam, rotating and moving our herds to different pastures, letting the pastures rest to regenerate and rid the land of any harmful bugs, vaccinations, clean water, and dry, clean bedding when needed.

  • Non-GMO

    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.
