Our cow herds are 100% grass-fed and receive no corn, soy, or other grains (the dairy cows are certified organic). Their winter stored grass is supplemented with barley sprouts. The egg chickens receive 100% organic, non-GMO soy-free scratch grain in addition to their certified organic pasture upon which they free-range. The pigs, meat chickens, and turkeys receive non-GMO feed in addition to their pasture (and no chemicals).
Our organic, artisan, cheeses are made right on our farm from organic, fresh (raw) milk from our own cows. We use microbial rennet (non-animal, non-vegetable) and organic spices. We use no preservatives, fillers, coloring, or other additives in our cheeses. Our handcrafted cheeses include natural-rind Goudas, Cheddars, our farmstead original unpressed Polkton Corners, and several varieties of these basics.
Our Farm Store is open Monday and Tuesday from 9–5, Friday from 1–6, and Saturday from 10–2. We carry many Michigan products in addition to our cheeses, meats, and eggs.

Cedar Summit Farm is Minnesota's only 100% grass-fed creamery, located in New Prague. For more than four decades, our certified-organic family farm has been dedicated to preserving the health, environment, and economy of our local community. The water in our backyard creek leaves cleaner than when it came in. That's because we raise grazing cows on healthy, hearty pastures, which contributes to cleaner water for our neighbors downstream. Even in winter months, our happy herd roams freely and chews on preserved grass grown on our 185 acres.
Compared to typical "organic" farms, which feed cows a mixture of grass and grain, our 100% grass-fed milk, cream, and yogurts have a healthier balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3, and higher levels of CLA, "good fats" shown to greatly reduce the risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. For us, it's about healthier cows, a healthier community, and a healthier planet. It's the 100% difference!
You can find many of their dairy products at Twin Cities Natural Food Co-ops. They also provide home delivery service to New Prague and surrounding areas. Call for information.

They use management-intensive grazing and wholistic practices to create a biological farming system that is beneficial for the animals, environment, consumers, and community.
On the fields, absolutely no pesticides, herbicides, or artificial fertilizers are used. Instead, their own organic compost made on the farm from the winter bedding and natural is applied to the land. During the grazing season, the animals are outside, giving them an abundance of fresh air, sunlight, and organically fertilized pastures.

Coulter Farms lies quietly nestled between Shade Mountain and Tuscarora Mountain in Juniata County, midway between Harrisburg and State College. We are proud producers of exceptional grass fed beef, lamb, pork, free-range eggs, raw milk cheeses from our own Certified Organic 100% Grassfed Jersey cows (up to 9 varieties), and honey.
Our family manages the rotational grazing of 120 acres of rolling multi-speciated pasture and 90 acres of productive hay fields (organic as of Fall, 2007). We practice a purely organic farming system, relying exclusively on biological systems to achieve excellence in our soils/pastures/harvested forage/animals. Rotational grazing, cover crops, composting of manure, no-tillage seeding and conservative crop rotations are used extensively. Only the cleanest water runs off our land. We have eliminated all chemical, synthetic, antibiotic inputs and strive to reduce fossil fuel use while making the best possible use of solar fuel.
Ruminant animals at Coulter Farms never taste any form of grain...only mother's milk, lush pasture and fermented hay. Our two-year-old steers (8-month-old lambs) are fully finished, giving ample marbling to the meat. This marbling produces the highest levels of CLA and Omega 3's (not to mention taste and tenderness) in the meat. Wintering beef over a second winter to an age of 24-26 months is time-consuming, but we feel you'll agree that it is well worth the wait.
Processing is handled humanely in a local, USDA certified abattoir. Two to three weeks aging results in the highest levels of taste and tenderness. The product is skillfully cut, flash-frozen and cryo-vac packed to maximize quality and longevity.
A walk-in freezer at our farm allows us to maintain some inventory of meat, but most animals are pre-ordered (you may come select your animal on the hoof' if you like). Beef is available in quarters (approximately 100 pounds), halves or whole animals.
We would appreciate the opportunity to provide your family with what is, we are confident, the best meat available in the grass-fed market. Call or email us for more information. If you come to see us, please remember to bring your kids and boots so we can show you around.

What We Grow: Raw milk cave-aged sheep cheeses and raw milk cave-aged jersey cow milk cheeses (when milk is available); European style lamb (live weight between 75–90 pounds) June–December; Hot House lambs (live weight 40–55 pounds) April–May; replacement stock for sheep dairies; and livestock guardian dogs.

We’re proud of our 100% grassfed Jersey cross dairy herd. Our farm is located 10 minutes from Madison, WI, and an easy 5 minutes on and off I90. Come on out, see our farm for yourself, and know the feeling of peace and contentment extends beyond our family and animals – to you. Bring the whole family. We have balanced soils and incredibly fertility from following Biological farming principles. We are proud to farm for you: we show respect to our animals, the land, you our friends, and the world.
Our beef is naturally tender, excellent taste, from Jersey/crosses, as well as beef breeds. Ground beef averages 90-92% lean. Grass finished beef is available by the cut, in season: quarters, halves & wholes, as well as convenience and value packages to fit your budget and lifestyle. Our meat is dry-aged at least 10 days and vacupacked for best keeping and convenience.
Pastured pork is vacupacked and available by the cut, and in season, 1/2's and wholes. If you think you don’t like pork, you don’t like bad pork. Our pork is absolutely wonderful. Nitrate-free bacon in 2011.
Pastured, free range Eggs are available only in the grazing season by the dozen. You might find eggs as good, but none better.
All meats are State of Wisconsin inspected for pickup at our farm.
