Sugar Creek Farm started in 2002 out of our desire to raise beef the old-fashioned way. Pasture grazing, high-quality hay, and just the right amount of corn. No added growth hormones or antibiotic feed supplements. No pushing our animals to finish faster. Letting nature take its course, in its own time. Sure it costs more to raise beef this way. But the result? A premium, natural beef that’s tender, flavorful and nutritious.

As we talked with folks about what we were doing, we found out there are lots of you who are concerned about what you’re eating, too. With our love of farming it didn’t take much to convince us to expand our little herd and offer our premium natural beef to others who want to feel good about the meat they’re feeding their family.

Since then we’ve added heritage pork, pasture-raised broiler chickens and a flock of free-range laying hens to the farm.

Our animals get to do the things that make animals happy – graze, root and wallow, or scratch the ground for bugs. We think you’ll immediately see the difference between our farm-fresh meats and grocery store shelf meats. Tender, juicy steaks. Chicken packed with flavor and a firm texture. Eggs with rich golden yolks. And the bacon. The bacon is so good you’re going to want to grow tomatoes just to go with it.

And the best part is knowing where your food came from, how it was raised, and keeping your food dollars local.

“There is nothing I got in my beef bundle from Sugar Creek Farm that I would hesitate to buy again or recommend. It was that good.” ~ customer Lisa P.

“The best pork I’ve had in 40 years.” ~ customer Don S.

    Hello! I was searching the Internet for links regarding my Great-Great+ Grandfather Sylvanus Bishop. I am from the William Henry Bishop line. It was wonderful to read your entry from 2005 regarding the letters you have of your Great + Grandfather. Your blog is great and it has been a treat to read about your farm and family. If you have any family history you would like to share with me I would be ecstatic and happy to pay for any expense (such as copies, postage, time, etc…). I have become very interested in family histories and photos and would love to hear from you. cinbishop1964@yahoo.com. I have a short bio of Sylvanus and one picture of Sylvanus, one of Rachel and one of William Henry. If you don’t have copies of these I’d be happy to send them to you. Thank you! Cindy Bishop

    Hi,
    I found the picture of the Woodford freeze-proof Hydrant (tap as we call them in the UK) in the post: Hydrant/Posted on January 14, 2008 by Kelli, in a Google search. Great picture!

    It may well be the best picture of the hydrant that there is (!) and I was wondering if you’d mind if we used it on our website to promote these freeze proof hydrants in the UK. Please see http://www.harrierhydrantsandtaps.co.uk for info on us.

    Of course I’d give you a credit on our site and a link to your site.

    Please let me know, thanks.

    What are your prices for 1/4 of beef? do you have any available?

    • Kelli says:

      Our price this year (and has been for many years) is $2.25/# on the hanging weight. We do have some spots still available at County Line Locker in Riceville for December, possibly even yet in November. We ask for $100 deposit per quarter, once that’s received you will be on our reservation list.

      You can mail deposits to 2020 370th Street, Osage, IA 50461.

      If you have any other questions just give us a call at 641.732.4915 or email sugarcreekfarm@osage.net.

      Thanks!
