The GrassWay Farm is a certified organic dairy farm located on a winding country road near New Holstein, WI. For over 20 years, this is where people have come to see happy animals, outside in their natural environment. Sunshine, fresh air, exercise and nutrient-dense soils are our basis for healthy, happy animals right here in Wisconsin. All of our animals graze and frolic on the certified organic pastures and eat all organic feeds. We believe in the importance of supporting our local meat processors, although they are not certified organic. Our beef, chicken, turkey, lamb and eggs are available in an on-farm store where we also sell various organic foodstuffs. Because of zoning issues, a small membership fee is required.
Stop in to chat for awhile and see how animals should be raised. There are baby lambs in the spring now too – although they can be grazing anywhere on our 240 acre farm! They’ll talk for hours about what they’ve experienced here, without the video games. We can’t wait to meet you and talk to you how an organic family farm operates, using permanent managed pastures and organic materials to create a healthy environment. This is the way farming needs to be.
Ah. Springtime in WI. Sunshine, rain showers, 60+ degree days, yellow daffodils, purple crocus, snow showers, strong north winds, 40 degree days, strong east winds. The oxymoron of change as a constant variable.
Our long time store manager is bidding us adieu at the end of April for new places and adventures unknown. New faces are joining the farm with long term goals and ideals. Yet despite the changes, the store business and farm will continue as before, with chickens on pasture and frolicking calves. There will still be eggs with yolks so orange they practically glow and turkeys gobbling for a ride on the poultry golf cart. When something is right, when people see, feel and smell the source of their food, when something is truly good – then it will be there.
Go hug your kids and give your significant other a kiss. Know where your food comes from and vote with your dollars. You do have an impact on your world.
