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.

The irony of this has not gone unnoticed. On April 26, US Right to Know tweeted the following message: “#DietSodaScam: @PepsiCo switching from aspartame to sucralose is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.”

5/5/15: Milk members – Shortage is over, but the milkman changed his pickup schedule to an every other day pickup in the afternoons. Starting the even days in May on the 24th, the bulk tank will be empty in the early afternoon. So, plan on milk being available only until noon for the rest of the even days in May. The off days (the odd days in May), will have milk available all day. Since there are 31 days in May, the schedule shifts to the odd days in June having milk only until noon, with milk available all day on the even days.
Calendars are available in the store. We apologize for this inconvenience, but it is outside of our control. We continue to be closed on Tuesdays and Sundays (see hours above).
