We steward 40 acres of rolling land just north of Mount Vernon, Iowa. 2023 will be our second season farming on this property. We grow over 150 varieties medicinal and culinary herbs, flowers, and perennial shrubs on our Certified Naturally Grown herb farm. For a full list of the plants we grow, click here.
Our farm is registered as Certified Naturally Grown, and we are in the transitional years to become Certified Organic. We utilize organic practices and low-till systems that encourage robust soil biology, sequester carbon, and protect our soils from erosion all while producing beautiful and resilient crops.
In addition to growing botanicals, we raise 100% pasture-raised Katahdin sheep. Raising ruminant animals on pasture is a beautiful pairing – the sheep eat nutritionally-dense forage while offering fertility directly back to the land. When plants and grasses are grazed, it stimulates deeper root growth which leads to increased levels of organic matter in the soil, less soil compaction, and more resilience to the effects of drought as the roots can access water deeper in the earth. Protecting & restoring our soil is the main goal for this operation. Raising sheep on pasture offers the opportunity for mutual flourishing of both land and animal, while also producing a high-quality, nutrient-dense, & sustainable source of meat. Our pasture-raised lamb will be available for sale in the fall of 2023.

About (short): Originally chartered as Antlers National Bank in 1901, the bank’s name was changed to First National Bank in 1935. During that same year, depositors were often given stock in lieu of their money due to the Great Depression, the majority of which stock was spread throughout the local community. From 1992 to 2002, the Burrage family acquired all of the bank’s outstanding shares, which resulted in the nationally chartered First National Bank becoming the state-chartered FirstBank.

The history of FirstBank began in 1901, when the Antlers National Bank was chartered. In 1906, the bank moved to the location where FirstBank in Antlers still operates today. During the 1920’s, there were three banks in Antlers: Antlers National Bank, Farmers Exchange Bank and Citizen’s National Bank. Antlers National Bank acquired Citizen’s, leaving two banks in the community. In 1935, during the depression many depositors of Antlers National Bank were given stock in lieu of their money. Two of those receiving stock were Oliver Wood, Roberta Burrage’s great uncle, and Robert Wood Sr., Roberta’s grandfather, who each received one hundred ninety shares out of ten thousand total shares. The remaining shares were spread throughout the community. That same year Antlers National Bank changed its name to First National Bank of Antlers… Read more
