Consumer Reports Article on Safety of Ground Beef

This article from the October 2015 issue of Consumer Reports magazine offers a cautionary note about the conventional beef production and processing system in the United States. At Saxon Homestead Farm we are proud of our beef production system. We believe in environmental sustainability and humane treatment of livestock and take great pride in raising high-quality Grass-fed Finished beef. Visit our About Our Beef page to learn more.

Read about when 37 airplanes and 500 cows shared our pastures during the 2nd Annual Super Cub Fly-in to Saxon Homestead Farm. This event has taken place on our farm for two years in a row. We enjoy having the Super Cub airplanes land in our field and hosting the pilots and their families for lunch in our historic barn.

Partnering for Progress Barn Dance

The barn dance begins!

Beginning Sept. 2009, along with Partnering for Progress, we have hosted the Wisconsin Barn Dance. Proceeds from the event benefit the Partnering for Progress nonprofit partners: Lakeshore Natural Resource Partnership, Gathering Waters: Wisconsin’s Alliance for Land Trusts, and the  Wisconsin School for Beginning Dairy & Livestock Farmers. Our farm collaborates with these three organizations to work toward the shared goal of keeping Wisconsin’s communities thriving. The central mission of Partnering for Progress is to conserve farmland and natural resources, support beginning and continuing farmers, and sustain vibrant communities to improve rural and urban life in Wisconsin.
