Milk & Honey is a suburban farm and cooperative located in Wauconda, IL. We specialize in grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured poultry (chickens and turkeys) and eggs, chemical-free produce, and natural lifestyle products.
We want to bring more flavorful and nutritious food to the table. We focus on soil quality and care for our animals in a way that honors them. We are grateful for the food they provide and show our gratitude by raising them as closely as possible to the way nature intended.
Our philosophy is that you are what your food eats. Our animals are pastured, which results in superior taste and higher nutritional content than conventionally-raised meat. Buying directly from our farm removes the middlemen and ensures optimal freshness.
All of our birds have access to the outdoors so they can do what they love most: forage for insects and even small rodents. We raise chickens year-round and turkeys seasonally. Both are naturally omnivorous, and it’s important to us to maintain their natural instincts.
We raise pastured pork year-round. Our pigs have access to the outdoors so they can root, even in the snow. We supplement the foraging of our poultry and pigs with food scraps from our farm and non-GMO feed that is free of animal byproducts.
We raise Scottish Highland pastured beef year-round. Highlanders, well-known for their large horns, are one of the world’s oldest breeds. Their thick, shaggy coats have a wool-like layer. making them well suited for Illinois winters. Grazing on pasture provides them with a happier, stress-free life, creates more nutritious milk for their calves, and healthier meat for us--in at least ten different ways. They receive a mineral supplement, plus apple cider vinegar in their water. We never use antibiotics or hormones.
Although we produce most of the items in our foodshed, we occasionally allow others, such as soap makers and beekeepers, to showcase their products that complement our practices and philosophy.
