R Family Farm is a small-acreage farm located just 10 minutes north of Poplar Grove. Mike inherited his family's farm in 2008 and we were then able to expand. Our 7 children have all been involved in 4-H showing animals at the local fair for 30 years and now we have taken raising animals to a far larger level. From these simple beginnings, we have been encouraged by long time customers, our friends and family to become a local meat and egg supplier. We have a store on our farm and also sell at the Woodstock Farmer's Market and the Cary Farmer's Market.
We grow a wide range of animals on our farm. Our goal is to keep our animals out on pasture as nature intended. We also grow a large amount of our grain and hay here on our farm that we feed our animals. We truly believe that meat with NO HORMONES, NO STEROID, and NO ANTIBIOTICS are better for everyone!
We use all antique machinery our farm. We have added pictures of us combining, grinding feed, and haying with our antique machinery.
We are also members of the Antique Tractor Club here in Boone County.
