Beard Family Farm

Decorah, Iowa

Beard Family Farm is a diversified organic livestock farm. Some organic crops and lots of organic hay and pasture is raised to nourish the livestock. The Jersey and crossbred cows of the Beard Family’s Canoe Creek Dairy produce certified organic milk that is marketed through Organic Valley Cooperative. Red Devon cattle are raised for beef and a flock of katahdin hair sheep produce delicious lamb. A flock of laying hens is kept for fly control and other poultry and some pigs decorate the farmyard.

Organic Valley Cooperative is owned by over 2000 family farmers across the country. As a coop, we produce delicious dairy products with the Organic Valley brand.

Lamb is harvested locally and is available at the Oneota Community Food Coop in Decorah and various restaurants in Decorah.
