Garlic and lamb|
I am the owner of Tesdell Century Farm. 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 my German Extra Hardy garlic and lamb for more than a decade.
