We at Silver Nickel Organic Family Farm are proud to offer heirloom Shorthorn cattle as our beef stock. These docile grass-fed cattle come from a local farmer who can trace the blood line back 100 years and is proud of having one of the only heirloom Shorthorn herds in the country. We also have chosen an heirloom Tamworth breed of hogs to raise for meat. These are long, docile, foraging hogs that deliver scrumpous hams and bacon. Our lambs are grass-fed and come from a Finnish breed. We also free-range chickens that are known for longevity and furnish a brown, delicious, golden- yolked egg. Having been a Certified Organic Dairy farm for several years, we have given up the costs of the certification but still believe in using the National Organic Standards as the foundation upon which our farm is run and our animals are fed and humanely cared for. We also are starting a herd/cow share program with our milking shorthorn cows. So you have a chance to own part of a cow/herd and receive the benefits of it's raw milk and other by products. We have an on-farm store which is stocked with organic/all-natural foods and meats. We display our own farm raised meats and also showcase the works of other small farmers and local entreprenuers. This would include lotions and soaps from goat milk, local honey and maple syrup, cheese straight from the farm, Kefir from MN organic farms, ice cream made on a Mn farm with certified organic milk, organic butter from MN, flax from a certified organic farm in Iowa, Certified organic homemade pizzas and delicious certified organic apple juice from our neighbors in Wisconsin ...just to name a few items. If your are in the neighborhood, stop on in and check out the farm and the store. We also have a Fall Festival and are scheduling in some hands-on classes with horses, gardening, making butter, etc. We offer horse-drawn bobsled and wagon rides and tours for school children. Watch for more activities on the farm as they arise.
Our farm offers organically grown, pasture-fed heirloom beef and pork, delicious, deep- orange yoked eggs, a cow/herd share program for your raw milk, etc. Our on-farm store offers organic/all-natural food and other local products. Together we offer this along with horse-drawn rides, educational tours, farm festivals, and so much more. Our mission includes the opportunity to showcase and support fellow agricultural growers and local entreprenuers in our community and surrounding area.
