About the Event
Come experience Brattset Family Farm, a 290 acre grass-based grazing farm, located within the rolling drumlin fields of Southeastern Wisconsin. This multi-generational farm produces 100% grass fed & finished beef. The cattle live humane, stress free lives, grazing on the plentiful pastures and are rotated onto fresh pasture daily to assure they have an extremely healthy environment and delicious food.
The farm is organic certified and preserved for agricultural use & wildlife conservation, in perpetuity, for the benefit of future generations by a conservation easement held by the Drumlin Area Land Trust. The farm consists of crop/pasture land; restored prairies; woodland; wooded wetland; wild life ponds and wild life habitat; a herd of 100% grass fed and finished beef cattle; pastured hogs; and a Silvoculture nut and fruit tree planting.
An avid steward of the land, Farmer Kirsten Jurcek champions sustainable and organic farming and conservation practices and has particated in multiple NRCS programs.
