All Grass Farms is a diversified 150 acre pasture farm in Dundee, Illinois about 45 miles from downtown Chicago. Our centerpiece enterprise is the raw milk operation, we are one of 9 farms licensed in Illinois to produce and distribute raw milk. Our small but growing herd of approximately 20 purebred A2 Guernsey cows is grazed on about 40 acres of pasture, with an other 30 acres added in 2020.
In addition to raw milk, we produce 100% grass fed beef on the farm, as well as pasture-raised chickens, eggs, turkeys, and pork. Almost all production is sold through our on-site farm store. We are looking to add an additional farm site in 2020 to expand our dairy and beef operations.
Our ideal apprentice will be interested in learning all aspects of our farm operation, with the goal of taking over farm management in 3-5 years.
