Our story begins with my husband and I growing up on farms in Pennsylvania. We loved it and knew we wanted to provide this opportunity to our children soemday. Due to the urban sprawl along the east coast, continuing the farming tradition had become very difficult for young couples. So, in 1995, married just a few months we left our family and friends and headed west along with a few crossbred Angus/Limousin cows to the beatiful, rolling hills of southern Iowa.
In 2001, we restored an original 1930's, hip-roofed, milking barn and opened the Harvest Barn Marketplace. Our country store started with fresh produce and country inspired gifts. We then added our own hand-poured, soy-blended candles, available in dozens of fabulous secnts. For the sweet tooth, we now make over 20 varities of our homemade fudge with only the freshest ingredients including real cream and butter.
The product we are most proud of though is our all natural beef. We use an Angus/Limousin cross to create the best tasting beef. It is very lean yet has beautiful marbling. Initially, our calves flourish on the nutrition provided by their mothers, as they grow and mature the calves are able to graze on our pastures and are offered the alfalfa grass hay and corn we grow on our farm. We don't ever fed them any growth hormones or inject any antibiotics. Our all natural beef is processed in a family owned, USDA inspected locker and then returned to us. It is truly great tasting beef from our family farm to your family table!
Along the way we have been blessed with the opportunity to raise thee wonderful children that love the tradition of farming and raising animals as much as we did as children and still do today.
