Dual Rill Farms

 

OUR STORY

Earl and Lana are passionate about farming they come by it naturally. Lana is a 3rd generation farmer and her earliest memories involve feeding and milking cows, feeding calves and raking hay. Earl realized at a young age that he wanted to work with farm animals, so as soon as he was old enough he began working on a pig farm. That only fueled his desire for his own farm, so at the age of 15 he bought his first cow/calf pair and started raising his own little herd of cattle. He and Lana got together and dreamed of a day they could have their very own working farm. Then one day while visiting the area, they decided to check out some local farms and the rest is history.

Farm To Table

Skip the aisles and take a drive to the country and shop at Dual Rill farms.

By purchasing directly from the farmer, you’ll know your meat was raised ethically.  Stop in anytime, see our farm, and say hello.

As your food is grown closer to home, it reaches your table faster; keeping it fresher, higher quality and more nutritious.  You’ll be supporting a local business and a local family.

Livestock

Here at the farm we let our cow herd out onto pasture around the end of may. The rotational grazing system we use here on the farm is developed by subdividing a large pasture into several smaller paddocks and grazing these paddocks in a planned sequence. This provides rest periods for plants while others are being grazed. Once all the paddocks have been grazed, the sequence restarts with the first pasture that has been rested the longest being grazed.
Manure nutrients are more evenly distributed across the field as well.
We just don’t do this with our cattle, our chickens do as well.
