Of the Land

Regenerative, Humane, Ecological Farming
- with Pride and Love -

Now Accepting 2023 Pre-Orders!!

Lamb/Pork orders due January 15, please Poultry orders thru March

When Anne and John (the Gray) got married, they dreamt of a field and barn instead of a lawn and picket fence.

After many years of searching, waiting, and learning through urban farming, they purchased land in Cedarburg, WI. Now, they and their four adult children are happy stewards of 20 acres. Their son John (the Tall) is the primary farmer, spearheading the effort to bring our delicious food to your table.

Welcome to Of the Land Farm!

Using the best regenerative, ecological, humane methods, we raise all-but organic (everything but the label) chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, and, most importantly, pasture!

All our animals are pasture-fed, and most (not rabbits) are pasture-raised.



On our urban farm, our laying hens got a lot of attention. These days, we raise chickens (meat & eggs), ducks (meat & eggs), and the best turkeys!



On our urban farm, our first foray into animal farming was rabbits. These days, we cross-breed American Sables to help preserve the historic, rare Sable.

  • Cedarburg, Wisconsin, United States

Call or email to order or ask questions!. We accept advance orders thru March, with deposit. (Lamb & pork orders are due Jan. 15, 2023!!) If the cost for 2023 exceeds our price because of inflation, we will raise the price to cost and you may reduce your order to keep your total cost the same.

John the Tall

Farmer / Certified in Pasture-Based Livestock Managment, BSE

John the Tall fell in love with farming after joining the 4-H rabbit project. Since then, he attended the Farm and Industry Short Course at UW-Madison, where he focused on pasture and livestock management. Naturally, he directs all things pasture, striving to improve local biodiversity while growing the healthiest forage. He is excited to raise healthy, delicious meat for you and your family!


Owner, Manager / APNP, FNP-BC, NFP-C, IFM-C

Anne is a nurse practitioner specializing in functional medicine. The decline in pollinators affected her ability to grow food for her family, reinforcing how the health of our world / food is essential to our own health and well-being. This resulted in finding ways to “farm” in the city, including bee-keeping. As we have grown, her contributions to the farm center on soil and animal health and well-being, as well as creating metrics to evaluate and improve farming methods and efficiency.

John the Gray

Investor, Farm Hand / MBA, USAR-LtC(R)

John the Gray is a life insurance underwriter with a degree in English literature. He loves the farm - the idea of the farm, looking out over the land, and doing his part to keep equipment running and creatures growing. He looks forward to the day we are able to resume beekeeping - hopefully soon!


Farm Hand / CNA

Edward is an engineering student and the manager of an acapella group. He enjoys working with the animals and providing manual labor. He hopes to someday be able to provide small-scale butchering for local farmers like us.


Dietitian, Farm Hand / RD

Sarah enjoys using her dietary knowledge to support the farm effort - and driving the tractor and participating in community labor days (construction projects, tree planting/care days, and more). She finds peace and awe in agricultural endeavors. Any recipes shared from our farm are Sarah-tested and family-approved!


Data Scientist, Farm Hand / MS

Katie loves getting out on the farm to be another pair of hands on big projects, and making animals happy - and keeping the humans happily fed! Also a pencil farmer, Katie is slowly building tools to help small farms like ours become data-driven for economic sustainability.
