Who we are... At Russ-Stick Acres, life is simple, but demanding. It is also rewarding. Every building on our farm was hand constructed by Russ. We enjoy the winter with our Alaskan and Siberian sled dogs, sharing rides with the public. We have a soft spot for BLM adopted Mustangs. We raise our own lamb, chevon, pork and beef (Irish Dexter). We tap and process Maple syrup during spring thaw. Our Heritage Breed chickens provide fresh farm eggs. American Silver Fox rabbits adorn our property. Goats provide us with fresh milk. We supply wood for building and/or heating your home or small campfire.
We are a northern Michigan connection to the Amish. We have queen size Amish quilts on hand for sale, along with other Amish made products ~ such as jams, rag rugs, bird houses, etc.
