Welcome to Storybook Farm Minnesota, a cheerful 40 acre farm dedicated to growing healthy families.
We produce local, pasture raised beef & lamb in southern Minnesota. We also raise family dairy cows and goats.
FAMILY MILK COWS/GOATS
“A dairy animal is both a big commitment and a valuable investment in your family farm or homestead. Choosing the right dairy animal & support network is crucial to ensure a positive experience for years to come. ”
“We have two registered MN Cottage Law Food producers on site who make fresh sour dough bred, cakes, cookies, pies and preserves. We use fresh ingredients from the farm as possible. ”
GRASS FED BEEF/LAMB
“We raise British White beef for their gentle disposition and excellent flavor and tenderness as grass-fed beef. Our American Blackbelly sheep are lean and tender, and have a milder flavor than traditional woolie lambs ”
“Our free range chickens and ducks have been out-producing our family needs and are available for purchase from the farm. Enjoy a nutrient dense breakfast, collected fresh daily! ”

Ode to the Farm Collie
My mom and her siblings often shared stories of their beloved childhood farm dog, “Mupsie”, who was an Old Time Farm Collie/English Shepherd. She fascinated my grandpa – Mupsie allegedly knew which stall each dairy cow belonged in, and would put rogue livestock back in their place without direction. She followed grandpa around like a shadow, but played with all the kids. On summer nights when they would sleep outside all around the farm she would carefully check on each child scattered across the farm – all night long – and then be exhausted the next day. One of my aunt’s reminisced “We had a farm collie when we were growing up. She was good with the cows and gentle with us children; I was grateful for her friendship. I remember thinking that when no one seemed to understand how I felt, “that at least Mupsie loved me.”
