In 2008 we added to our small hog farm by forming a co-op with a group of small farmers that all have the same philosophy about how farm animals should be raised, how they should be treated and what they should eat.  Each farm has a passion for the specific animal they raise.

Gunthorp Farms

Gunthorp Farms is a family owned business and all members of the family chip in.  Gunthorp Farms also employs approximately 15 full-time and 15 part-time employees.

At Gunthorp Farms, they specialize in quality meat.  All animals are raised on pasture without the use of antibiotics.  They have an on farm USDA inspected processing plant where we harvest, process, and package all of our animals before shipping them out to upscale restaurants and retail locations in Chicago, Indy, & Detroit.

Seven Sons

Seven Sons Family Farms was established in 2000 by Lee & Beth Hitzfield and their seven sons. Their mission is simple; to produce nutrient-dense foods that heal and nourish our land and those who eat of its bounty.
