Greetings from the beautiful bluffs in Lanesboro, MN! Summer Hill Family farm is a MOSA Certified Organic family farm striving to farm in a environmentally friendly way. We raise chicken, turkey, lamb,and pastured eggs. All our livestock is raised on high quality pastures and balanced grain rations. Our chickens and turkeys are fed certified organic feed, raised out on fresh pastures and locally processed at a USDA plant. This produces a quality, flavorful turkey and chicken like you have never tasted. Our flock of sheep are naturally grown, raised out on lush clover pastures and fed limited grain resulting in a wonderful mild flavor of lean lamb. Lamb is available by the cut and is processed at a USDA inspected plant. You can also order lamb by the half or whole for quantity.

Besides meat we also grow proven winner hanging baskets and cut flowers.

Deb and Sarah are usually available every week at the Rochester Downtown and Winter Markets. I have purchased eggs and many whole chickens from them, and they are always helpful with any question I might have. As for the chicken? It is amazing. If you have been eating commercially raised and store-bought chicken, you have probably forgotten what good fresh chicken should taste like! I usually roast mine whole, seasoned with olive oil, salt, pepper, and some thyme on a bed of carrots, celery, and onions. A thawed 4-lb chicken is done in a 375 degree oven in about 75 minutes. The meat is tender and juicy and so full of flavor that I usually simmer down any leftover bones to make delicious chicken stock. The tasty Summer Hill Farms birds elevate chicken from that stuff-we-eat-when-we-don't-know-what-to-cook to my family's favorite Sunday dinner. The cost may be more than the grocery store, but it is worth every penny.
