The drought of 2012 that is affecting so much of the midwest is causing problems for us as well. We have lost a lot of crops due to the lack of rain. We are looking forward to harvest to see how it all turns out. It is more important now than ever to support local small farmers for your food. There are many of us here in Wisconsin who raise almost anything that you could want to eat. Please search out farmers markets and small farmers who need your support right now. You can help support rural Wisconsin! Thanks!
Drought of 2012
Spring has had a hard time coming this year, but I think its finally here! Our grass just started growing and this weekend our trees got their new leaves. Because if this our first batch of chicks is just coming this week. And the pigs are impatiently awaiting their pastures to start growing. And we are hoping to finally be in the fields planting this week.
Farm Store Now Open!
We now have a store on the farm where you can easily find all of our frozen pork and chicken. Give us a call if you are driving through Osseo and we can help you find all of your summer grilling meats!
Also, the new Western Wisconsin Farm Fresh Atlas are available and Deutsch Family Farm is now listed in it. You can find many great local farm products in there.
Winter is here!
We just had our first snow of the year. The farm is suddenly very quiet and peaceful.
The new hog shed was built in mid-November and all of the pigs were moved into it the week of Thanksgiving. A big THANK YOU to all of our family and friends who helped us get so much work done before winter set in.
A nice group of baby pigs are just over a week old and doing well.
Pasture Raised Chicken
Our first batch of pasture raised chicken is finished! We have whole and half chickens, give us a call to order yours.
Pigs on Pasture
We are just developing our website and blogs. Please check back as it progresses!
