North Star Homestead Farms, LLC

North Star Homestead Farms is uniquely located on a historic homestead tucked in the Chequamegon National Forest. Restored and re-visioned by a family of three women, N* provides local food to Hayward, Cable, and the surrounding community via CSA, farmer's market, and direct sales of poultry, lamb, pork, eggs, honey, produce, and bakery. We also have an aquaponics unit, coordinate a natural foods buying club, and produce custom gardening services for individuals and restaurants.

Our mission is to provide our local community with foods raised in a responsible, chemical-free, humane, and sustainable manner while living and working in harmony with the Northwoods enviornment. We constantly strive to decrease our carbon footprint and increase our green strategies for connecting consumers with healthy and natural products.

While North Star Homestead Farms is not certified, we use organic practices in our raised-bed gardening methods. We value transparency and encourage building relationships with the people we serve. All of our animals (including heritage breeds) are pasture raised using intensive roational grazing practices, and we always are mindful of balancing our needs with what these fragile northern soils can support. You can learn more about our operation, including images and customer reviews, by visiting our website or Facebook pages.
