About Us
We live on the prairie hills of NW Kandiyohi County-20 minutes south of Glenwood, MN. Mae and Mike have extensive experience grazing animals and are trying to grow a family and a farm operation. We raise Dorper-cross sheep, which are a 'hair' sheep that shed their coat seasonally, and are bred for their hardiness and excellent meat quality and high carcass yield. They tend to have milder flavor than more wooly breeds. We also raise Highland/ Angus cross cattle.

All of our animals are fed high quality, local hay and graze seasonally.

Mae has advanced training in grazing management and low stress stockmanship and we pride ourselves in the gentle handling techniques we use when moving animals on pasture. When pasture is available we rotate animals often to ensure our prairie pastures thrive. In the cold months we supplement with locally raised alfalfa, clover and grass hay, and sometimes oats if needed for finishing or due to harsh weather.
