Chickens and turkeys at Shady Lane Farm are pastured on lush greens, enjoying bugs, fresh air and sunshine--a chicken's dream diet! We feed certified organic grains and closely monitor a healthy weight gain. We raise some chickens each year conventionally, but even those are never fed antibiotic- or added hormone-laced feed. Our family processes and packages all of our own poultry, and we grow-to-order. We also try to have a year-round supply of frozen chickens on hand. We welcome visitors (by appointment) to observe our growing practices.
Our family farm motto is "Preserving Tradition's Wisdom." We believe that the modern advancements in food and body care products, although convenient and inexpensive, have done away with many of the benefits that were present in generations past. We're doing our part to preserve the health, purity and wholesomeness that home grown and hand made products had to offer "way back when." Our grandparents were farmers and producers in the 50's, 60's and 70's, and we are trying our best to follow in their footsteps--sustainable farming and gardening only made sense back then, and it still does today. We compost and recycle, encourage helpful insect populations, irrigate with rainwater, and fertilize naturally with components produced on our farm.
We enjoy meeting and chatting with customers--it's always so encouraging to encounter folks who are trying hard to incorporate healthful food and body care products into their lifestyle. And it's exciting and fulfilling to be able to offer the "fruits of our labor" to help meet the need that exists in our community.
At Shady Lane Farm, the whole family pitches in--planting, weeding, watering, feeding and even butchering! Shady Lane Farm is a regular vendor at local farmer's markets (Red Wing, MN; River Falls, WI; Menomonie, WI), offering perennials in the spring, organic soap and body care products throughout the year, and we take orders for pastured chickens and turkeys during the spring and summer. We also sell directly from our farm. Give us a call!
