About Us

Meat chickens

We are out of organic chickens until 2020 no fault of our own.  We raise healthy delicious meat birds supplemented with certified organic grains and supplements while on grass pastures.  Our birds are hand-fed and provided a happy place to rest, eat, and play.  They are humanely slaughtered on farm under clean, controlled conditions for food safety and meat quality. 

Fresh whole eggs

We won't have organic pasture-raised eggs until 2020.  Our delicious, rich, orange yolk eggs are from heritage breed laying hens that are chosen for their docility rather than the number of eggs produced. They cook up fluffy with the ultimate "taste" wow factor. They love to free range around the farm yard eating hundreds of insects a day. They love warm baths in winter and a blow dry! 

On-farm processing

If you wish to rent our processing equipment, please call us.  It is available for the spring, summer, and fal season.  We are starting to process our meat birds in a brand new on-farm processing plant using Featherman Pro equipment. We had to give up our federal inspection application due to high levels of pesticide drift from our neighbors around the plant in 2017.

Laying Hens on Pasture

Check out this beautiful video of our laying hens from summer 2017. These birds had to be immediately removed due to high level pesticide exposure from drift. We miss them so much.

Prairiesun Organic Corn Harvest

Check out this great video about our family and our 2014 grain harvest. It was our very best yielding $1,400/acre profit.  My dad, Ed, in this video passed away the following month. This is dedicated to that great man I loved so much. Unfortunately those days are over as we transition back to organic and try to get our farm plan back in order.
