Asgaard Farm, near AuSable Forks, is the former home of artist, writer, adventurer and political activist Rockwell Kent. It was acquired by David Brunner and Rhonda Butler in 1988. After working several years to restore the land and buildings, they put the farm back into production, initially growing certified organic grains and hay. Plans are currently underway to establish an organic beef herd, develop an organic goat dairy and create artisanal cheeses. Asgaard is also part of the American Tree Farm System, and its woodlands are managed using sustainable forestry practices. To find Asgaard: At the southern end of Main Street in AuSable Forks, go over the bridge that crosses the East Branch of the Ausable River. Turn right immediately after the bridge onto Sheldrake Road. The farm is located about 1 1/2 miles further on the right hand side of the road. The grains and hay are certified organic. Meats and cheeses will be classified as all-natural until target herd numbers are achieved and the animals can be transitioned to organic.
Dan and Sara Burke strive to provide great tasting, wholesome food to their local community.

Their beef, pork and eggs are available year round at the farm or delivered locally. CSA memberships are also available, please call or email for details. New members currently accepted.
