The Beginning

April 7th 2021

We began this year by converting 55 acres of conventional farmland into grass filled pasture by the means no till planting.


The Beef Herd Arrives

April 24th, 2021

Ski Farms officially expands into the beef cattle industry by bringing home 10 Black Angus/Holstein calves that will be pasture raised on the farm until they reach butcher weight.

Planting Future Windbreak

May 1st, 2021

With the help of some great friends and family members we were able to successfully plant 3,000 trees, shrubs, and bushes as a future windbreak for the cattle. The outside row (row closest to the road) consists of 750 Red Cedar and 250 White Cedar as the primary wind blocking structure. Then the second row includes 500 Norway Spruce and 500 White Spruce to add height to the wind break. Lastly, the final row consists of 150 Serviceberry, 500 Black Elderberry, and 350 Common Chokecherry to add additional pollination habitat for our honey bees.

Baby Sheep Arrive

Our fuel efficient lawn mowers arrived to Ski Farms. The sheep do an amazing job of eating the grass around the Christmas Trees.


First Batch of Chickens

May 14th, 2021

With the movable chicken huts constructed and the spring green grass growing, we were able to begin raising our meat chickens in-between our Christmas Tree rows.

Honey Bees

May 31st, 2021

We purchased our Honey Bees from Sweet Mountain Farm location on Washington Island, Door County. We constructed the honey bee boxes on top of a concrete slab with a South facing entrance for the bees so they receive an abundance of sunlight.


Cattle Winter Waterer Install

June 19th, 2021

With the help of a hard working father and a hired mini excavator, Ski Farms successfully buried 900 feet of water line 5 feet deep. We decided to install a geothermal watering system that uses the earth's ground temperature in the winter to keep the water tank from freezing instead of having to depend on electricity.
