We get a lot of questions from readers and friends we meet.  Here are the answers to just a few common ones.  Not seeing your question on this list?  Please feel free to contact us, or just send Krystyna a direct email at uppastured @ gmail.com (sans spaces).  

Can I stop by and visit your farm?

Sorry, but we aren’t prepared for unscheduled visitors at the moment.  When we are, we’ll be sure to shout it from the rooftops!  But you can keep an eye out for our farm shop to open up in the not so distant future!

Do you accept guest posts on your blog?

Yes, we do!  But we don’t accept all posts from all sources.  We’re proud of the content we provide.  In order to continue to offer valuable articles that our readers want, we review all submissions prior to making any agreement to publish a post.  If you would like to submit an article for consideration, please be sure that it is on topic  with our blog and send it via email to Krystyna, directly, at uppastured @ gmail.com (sans spaces).  Be sure to include your full name, website (if applicable), a short personal bio, and a head shot, in addition to your article.  Articles that include at least one original photograph and come from an established blogger or author will be given priority.

Can I buy meat/eggs/produce from you?

Yes, you sure can!  We offer a variety of farm goods, including pastured chicken eggs, pastured pork, beef, handmade soaps, hay and more!  Feel free to contact us for more information or to set up an appointment to stop by and make a purchase!

You really like reusing junk and old materials on your farm.  Is there anything I can save for you instead of throwing it in the trash?

This is a question I get a lot.  Fortunately, there are lots of things I’d love to divert from the dump and put to use on our farm.  And if I can’t use it here, I just might have a neighbor or local friend that can!

Here are some items that we would love for you to save:

  • empty egg cartons
  • glass jars (with or without lids)
  • scrap building materials
  • 5 gallon buckets or similar containers
  • old fencing or fence posts
  • no longer working chest freezer
  • old roofing material you’re tossing
  • scraps from buildings you are tearing down

Got something else you think we could use?  Let us know – you might be right!

Where did the name UP Pastured Farms come from?

That’s a great question!  Over the years, our farm has moved.  It’s been in New York, Ohio, and finally rested permanently in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.  After making this amazing place our home, we donned an official farm name – UP Pastured Farms.  The UP is short for Upper Peninsula.  Since we live in the UP and we pasture raise our animals, the name fit perfectly!
