Thank you for your support this year!

We want to thank all our customers for your support! This year was a fantastic year and its all because of YOU! Check out how you helped regenerate soil, produce nutrient dense food, and give so many animals lives worth living!


This year, because of your support, we were able to continue to regenerate over 70+ acres of soil. This acreage used to be conventionally farmed and had no life left in the soil. Now each year, as we continue to rotate our animals, we are building the soils and bringing life back to them! By using animal rotation, we allow their manure to be a benefit to the soil. We also allow the soils to rest before grazing them again. This technique benefits both the animals and the health of the land.

Nutritious Food

It is such a great pleasure to be able to serve you, our amazing and loyal customers! We take great care in providing our customers nutritious and healthy products. By healing the soils and feeding our animals the appropriate diets, we can increase the micronutrient count in our foods. This, in turn, helps all who partake in eating our food to stay healthy and strong!

In 2022 we produced:

  • 87,000+ pounds of Chicken 🍗
  • 34,000+ dozen Eggs 🍳
  • 34,000+ pounds of Turkey 🦃
  • 11,229 pounds of Beef 🥩

Animal Welfare

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to raise animals the way they should be raised! We believe animals were created to express their natural behaviors and we are incredibly thankful that we can farm this way! During the spring, summer, and fall, all our animals are moved to fresh pasture every single day!

In 2022 we raised

  • 25,000+ Chickens 🐓
  • 2,300+ Turkeys 🦃
  • 32 Cows 🐄

Here’s to another great year!

Here’s to another great year!

Thank you for supporting our farm, for healing soils, for giving animals a good life, and for feeding you and your family healthy food! We look forward to what the next year will bring and we hope we can continue to serve you!

Anticipating the New Season

It is MARCH and we are feeling like Spring here at Joe's Farm. There is nothing quite like the anticipation of a new season. The weather is starting to warm (a few days more than normal) and we are getting ready to welcome our new baby chicks very soon. We are starting to see the end of the lists we made in the Fall. Hours spent on calendars and schedules. Days spent thinking through plans that will all soon become a reality. There is excitement in the air on the Farm! Over the past week, one very large development has been under construction. Last year, our farm expanded to include a new pasture. It is located right next to one of our farm properties. With this additional land, we are able to expand our production capabilities. This year, we plan to produce over TWICE as many broilers as we produced in 2023! This means, more infrastructure as well. Below, you will see photos from last week where we had NINE new coops assembled! Although, this is all very exciting for those here on Joe's Farm, this is really even more exciting to us because this means the demand for pasture-raised chicken is GROWING! So many farmers we talk to have said they can't keep up with the demand. This is AMAZING! People are asking questions and doing research. They are shopping local and buying from farms they trust! We are just one of many farms working to bring ethically raised meats to market. We are grateful you are here. Every week, we are getting more and more questions through our social media and website asking about our practices. This is such an encouragement to us! It shows how much you care. We have reflected on a lot of things this week, with growth comes some fears about the unknowns. We are so excited to embrace whatever challenges lie ahead, but you can be confident that even as we grow, our principles and values will not change. We are committed to maintaining our high standards whether we raise 100 chickens or 100,000. We know there are a lot of new names on our email list and social media accounts. First, we want to say thank you! Welcome! We would also like to share a few things that we feel are fundamental to us here at Joe's Farm. One example would be the length of time our chicks are on pasture. While baby chicks need the protection of a brooder barn at first, they are not meant to stay in a barn. Our protocol is to have our birds on pasture for over 50% of their lives. All of our broilers are moved to pasture when they are 3 weeks old. Another important part of our process in raising broilers, is the feed they eat. We have both non-GMO feed for our broilers and corn-free soy-free Organic. Another part of our process is DAILY movement! Each coop is hooked up to our tractor and moved until there is fresh grass under the entire coop. This gives them not only feed and water, but fresh vegetation, worms, and bugs along with sunlight and fresh air. Members of our team walk along while we move the coops helping the birds move along and looking for any potential issues. These are just a few examples of what care goes into the food we bring to your table. If you want to follow along with us this season, make sure to check out our Facebook and Instagram links. We will also share here on our Farm Newsletter. In closing, we want to share just how grateful we are to each one of you. The support shown by not only our amazing local community, but also all over the country. It is so incredible and humbling to be able spend our days caring for the land and the animals who use it. ~ The Joe’s Farm Team

We are Shipping Again

We are SHIPPING AGAIN!!Our Pasture-Raised Meats….Shipped to Your DoorLast summer, we made the difficult decision to pause our shipping program. Our Farm Store was growing rapidly (HUGE shout out to our amazing and supportive local community) and I (Danielle) was still getting myself settled into my new role here on Joe’s Farm. Now that we have gotten our systems in place and some new strategies (and training) under our belts, we are so excited to be relaunching our SHIPPING PROGRAM again! We want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has waited so patiently for us to begin shipping again. Some of you have been ordering from Joe since he first started offering shipping a couple years ago. We are grateful for your support and look forward to bringing you our pasture-raised meats once again. Quick details:We are finishing up making sure our inventory is accurate.

One of those ways is through a new program; Joe’s Farm Club subscription boxes! While we will still offer our ala carte shopping option, we are excited to be able to send our carefully curated farm boxes to your door with just the click of a button!

Farm Store

Our farm store just got a major restock! Grilling season is right around the corner and we have a variety of cuts available. Our featured steaks include porterhouse, sizzlers, t-bone and delmonicos. We also have our summer sausages and snacking sticks.  An exciting change is happening in our farm store. We will soon be accepting credit cards through a self service point of sale system! We currently accept Venmo, cash and check but we know that sometimes a credit card is a more convenient option. Make sure to watch for a future email (as well as on our social media) for information but it should be ready to use by this weekend! We hope this makes our shopping experience even better for our local customers!
