“We believe well raised and well grown food is not only healthy for us and the environment, but also tastes better!”

We (Joe and Charissa Coyle) have been farming organically for the past 22 years. We enjoy growing all of our own food… and also providing food to our local community. We have a small raw milk dairy, apiary, organic market garden, and also raise Mangalitsa and Mangalitsa cross pigs. We engage in farming practices that enhance, rather than harm, our beautiful, natural landscape, and that will preserve this wonderful, mid-western farm that we call home for generations to come!
