We are a family farming operation located in NE Polk County in Central Iowa. Our children are the sixth generation to be involved on this working farm. We are learning about managed rotational grazing and utilizing holistic practices with our livestock and our land. Our business, Cory Family Farm has successfully marketed our frozen, packaged lamb and beef directly to consumers since 1997. We strive to involve our children in all aspects of the farming operation in order to teach them about healthy food production, animal husbandry and entrepreneurship skills. Our goal is to have a "family-friendly" farm.
Our tagline, "It begins with the soil." This represents a philosophy of: vibrant soil + salad bar plants + growing animals = nutrient dense protein which leads to healthy people, families & communities! Check our our website www.coryfamilyfarm.com

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Our lambs have access to pasture year around. There is shelter available during inclement weather. Our animals are fed chemical-free grass and hay. There is no soy in their diet. We do not use any antibiotics or growth hormones. We believe in building up the immune system of our animals naturally through soil fertility. Our lambs, and beef are processed at the Mingo Locker which is a state inspected facility. The beef was raised exclusively on all-natural, chemical-free nutrient-dense pasture, received no antibiotics or growth hormones.
