Garlic and lamb|
We live in Lincoln Township, Polk County, Iowa where we raise sheep, chickens, garden vegetables, and tree fruit. My first objective is to raise food for home use but I also market through Iowa Food Cooperative and do some direct marketing.
I grew up gardening and raising animals. I was a member of two different 4-H clubs where I raised dairy goats, swine, and completed wildlife and forestry projects.

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
I do not use synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides (except to spray thistles-but not in my vegetable beds). I use a weed flamer, tillage, and an oats cover crop to reduce the weed pressure. I use the pharmaceuticals necessary to keep my animals healthy. I feed out my lambs on alfalfa/orchardgrass hay that I produce on my own land. I feed them a small amount of cracked corn or oats also.
I have been marketing lamb, eggs, sweet potatoes, peaches, pears, and potatoes in the recent past. I am producing German Extra Hardy garlic and lamb for the sixth season in 2015.
