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!

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!

March has always been one of our favorite months and this year was even better. In addition to over 7000 new baby chicks, we added a little farmer to our family. William (Liam) Wayne was born March 6th. Big brother, Rowan, has had his hands full helping with baby brother and welcoming all the new baby chicks. Springtime DreamingSpring is such an exciting time in the life of a farmer. While it might be a little premature to declare it spring here in SW MI, the new life arriving has made us feel like it is here. Welcoming our new fuzzy friends officially kicks off our 2023 season. We are so grateful to our customers and can't wait to start caring for these animals in the best way possible for their health and yours. We have lots of exciting things coming this year here at Joe's Farm and we can't wait to start sharing more over the next few weeks. Until then, make sure to follow our social media for lots of adorable baby chick content. These little birds are so much fun to watch grow. They are currently in our brooder and will go to pasture as soon as the weather and their development allows.

Getting Ready For 7,000+ Little Chicks!

Chicks Are Coming!In a few weeks, our little farm will be full of little fuzz balls running all around! See below how we care for thousands of little chicks! As I type this email, it is 45 degrees outside and snow is melting! It may only be mid-February, but the warmer weather has us dreaming of Spring. Spring on the Farm is one of our favorite times. We have thousands of little yellow fuzz balls running around in our brooder! It also brings us sunny days spent in the pastures with all our different animals! As we prepare for Spring, we wanted to take our customers along with us. Our goal is that you feel part of the process so that you can feel confident in the food you are consuming. That starts with baby every March. March 14, we will welcome our first batch of 7,600 chicks for 2023! It is hard to even put into words how much excitement surrounds welcoming our new fuzzy friends. Chick arrivals mean *all hands on deck* in order to get the chicks from the hatchery trays into our brooder. We are incredibly blessed to be on a weekly route for the hatchery which means we get chicks 12 hours after hatching! That is incredibly fast! For context, a few years ago, our chicks shipped through USPS. They could be 36+ hours old by the time we received them at Joe’s Farm. The first 72 hours are the most important in lives of our chickens. The sooner we can get the chicks into a warm stress free environment, with clean water and feed, the better! Being able to partner with our hatchery has made an impact on the welfare of our flock. We are always looking for ways to improve the welfare of our precious animals. We look forward to welcoming these amazing creatures onto our farm in just over a month! Make sure to follow along with our social media pages or here on our newsletter to watch these little chicks grow. Tour the Brooder with Farmer JoeLots of CHICKS!!
