Adam and Rae Strobel Barr farm land that has been in Adam's family since 1835. The whole family farm is about 260 acres total. Each year, we raise 2000 chickens for meat ("broilers") on pasture, and have about 250 laying hens for eggs ("layers"). The layers roost and lay eggs in a converted school bus, called an "egg-mobile" that gets moved around the fields, so the chickens are on fresh grass, which increases nutrients in the eggs and provides fun for the chickens and helps grow better grass for the cows. We have a 30 head cow/calf operation where we feed and finish the cows 100% on grass, and sell the grassfed beef at area restaurants and farmers markets, and through our Meat CSA.

We have a 100 member veggie CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), and raise about 40 different varieties of vegetables for CSA and farmers markets, including lots of greens in the spring and fall, heirloom tomatoes, squash, okra, sweet potatoes, winter squash, broccoli, cabbage, onions, garlic, etc.
