Petersen Family

Owner: Jacob Petersen

Jake Petersen farms the land that was founded by his grandfather in the 1940’s. The farmland consists of 320 acres of corn and beans, and an additional 50 acres for hay.
Jake is a farmer for a multitude of reasons, but really enjoys being independent and self-employed. He loves the outdoors and knew he would never be able to work indoors at sit down job. Jake’s farming practices include rotational grazing and minimal to no-till to be in sync with nature. The farm consists of 120 cows and calves and 90 head of Berkshire sows for his farrow-to-finish pig operation. Jake’s favorite meaty meal is smoked ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, fresh greens and homemade bread.
