|About||Sustainable, biodiverse farm. Heritage breed Mangalitsa hogs on pasture. No herbicide, pesticide, GMO or synthetic fertilizer. Delicious, healthy, humanely raised pork.|
Over the years, Sherry raised chickens, pigs and horses. The soil in Wascott, Wisconsin,(where she lived before establishing her farm), was extremely sandy and not the best quality for growing a garden. Because of this, she became intrigued with using chicken and hog manure for compost in her garden and found that the compost she used made her crops flourish.
Eventually, Sherry and her husband moved to Spooner because of her passion for healthy home-grown food and her belief that by living on a farm she could make decisions that she believes are good for not only herself but for her neighbors. Sherry chose to raise heritage hogs because they definitely support the concept of taking care of your soil and building a better farm. She started with three pigs and her passel of hogs has grown to 75 in the past three years. She continues to expand, but is adamant that she will not exceed the capacity that the land can handle.
Sherry believes that “Either your farm is getting better or it’s getting worse. Everything you do to it, every decision you make impacts your soil quality, your water quality, your own health and the health of your animals.
