The farm has been in the VanDerwerken Family for 92 years (since 1926) and has had four generations working on the farm. Originally operated as a small tie stall dairy, then transitioned to a layer chicken operation the farm untimely switched to beef production in 1964. It has been run as a cow calf operation since that time, at the peak, being home to over 100 head of brood (mama) cows. The primary source of income has come from feeder calf (calves that are not yet to harvest weight) sales, although we are going to start selling quarters and halves of beef if you are interested. We hope you are able to come enjoy seeing our farm and learning about the beef business!
