McIntyre Farms was established in 1909, it began with row crops and raising animals. This included a small number of dairy cows and a local supply of watermelons. Now in 2009, owners Ben and Brad started bringing more cows to the farm in order to help build up the soil fertility in a way that didn’t use a ton of artificial fertilizers or pesticides.
As time passed McIntyre Farms has grown the number of cows, hogs, chickens and turkeys on land. All of these animals play a vital row in farm rotation. The hens are a great way to naturally clean and sanitize the land by cleaning up flies and building up the soil's health. The owners rotate their crops which consist of various grasses, while also educating and selling crop seeds to the public. Currently, McIntyre Farms is run by the 3rd and 4th generation farmers Loren and brothers Ben and Brad. While Ben’s wife, Maria, helps on the farm while managing the farm's marketing and administration. Jill, who is married to Brad helps clean the eggs for packaging and fulfilling orders.
