Mint Creek Farm is located 80 miles south of Chicago, an island of grass in the midst of corn and soybean fields. We produce grassfed lamb, beef, veal, goat, pork, turkey, chicken, and eggs on our 230 organically certified acres.
We rotationally graze our pastures to help build our soil, capture carbon, and prevent erosion. Grazing provides exercise and a nutritious diet for our livestock. We also feed kelp as a supplement to give our livestock a good balance of trace minerals. Our pigs and poultry are raised on pasture and fed soy-free, organic feed. We pay careful attention to the animals’ diet, and the result is consistently high-quality meat and eggs.
Most of our products are available year-round. We ship via UPS, and can deliver to anywhere in Chicagoland or the Kankakee area. We sell individual cuts of meat as well as whole and half animals. CSA shares (5 or 10 pounds of assorted meats per month) are also available. We go to many farmer’s markets in Chicagoland throughout the year. Visit our website for locations and times.
