About Us
Our family of four works to grow healthy food on our 80 acres in Deuel County, SD. We specialize in certified organic garlic, garlic scapes and 100% grassfed lamb. We currently offer seven varieties of garlic. In 2016 we added a flock of Clun Forest cross sheep to provide on-farm fertility and offer grassfed meat and fiber products. We are thrilled with the added challenge and enjoyment of raising sheep. Producing quality, nutritious food sustainably has always been a passion for us!
Practices
We are committed to certified organic growing practices for the health of ourselves, customers and environment. We utilize crop rotation, cover cropping, mulching and rotational grazing to produce a healthy crop without synthetic herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers. We apply naturally-sourced minerals and amendments for a well-balanced, biologically active soil that provides fertility while reducing pests and disease.

Years ago we established perennial natives like Big Bluestem, Indian grass and Switch grass for use as garlic mulch and to provide continuous soil cover on erodible areas. In 2016 we planted additional acres of native grasses and flowers to improve the soil, provide pollinator habitat and increase pasture. Our goal is to use natural systems in a holistic approach to stewarding our land.
