Grassway Farm is a family run, 3rd generation dairy and crop farm. Gary (dad) and Scott (son) Wedemeier own and manage the farm together with a lot of support from Scott’s wife Catherine and their four children.
The farm is located at 18663 110th Street, Maynard IA 50655
The original farm started over 50 years ago as 172 acre homestead and has since grown to over 700 acres today. In 2015 they started the transition from conventional dairy and crop production to organic. In October 2017 the dairy cows and land were certified organic. This diversified farm includes row crops, 180 dairy cows, a small group of pasture raised hogs, and steers that are direct marketed through the Grassway Farm website.
In 2014 Scott and his father agreed that running a conventional dairy farm was not profitable enough for Scott to buy his father out so his father could retire unless they converted to an organic dairy and row crop farm. And so, their journey to organic began.
Their organic transition included a 160 acre field 5 miles from the dairy. These are the acres Wedemeier Farm Partners are purchasing. The sale will finance the Wedemeier’s purchase of an additional 160 acres immediately adjacent their dairy operations. The partnership will engage with Scott and Gary to continue to farm this ground on a crop share basis.
The average *CSR2 for this 155 acre parcel averages 88.3 with a mixture of productive Kenton loam, Clyde-Floyd Complex soils with between 2% & 5% slopes.
