The Featured Farmer for July is Khaiti Hallstein of Living the Dream Farm (L.T.D. Farm), located on 39 acres outside Clayton, WI. Khaiti has been farming since 2008 and specializes in pastured duck eggs because it is her most favorite food.
Having loved her childhood spent on a hobby farm in South Dakota Khaiti yearned to return to the country and found raising delicious food with care and respect for the life involved to be her true calling. The L.T.D Farm philosophy is to provide for the animals who then provide for Khaiti and you, her dearest customers; all done with respect, kindness, and compassion for the animal’s life. Khaiti genuinely wants her animals to have good lives full of normal animal behaviors and experiences, and in return they provide some of the most amazing products imaginable, and complete the cycle of fertility on the land.
Khaiti raises pastured Khaki Campbell and other breeds of ducks for eggs, as well as plump pasture raised broiler chickens. In 2015, Highland Cattle were added to the pasture mix. The duck eggs are available at most Co-ops in the Twin Cities. She also has available pastured meat CSA shares, handmade goat milk soap & all kinds of other from-the-farm goodies.
Living the Dream Farm will be featured through the month of July, please join Khaiti at the Farm Table Restaurant on July 27th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm for the Featured Farmer Dinner. She is bringing with her a very special guest you will not want to miss! (Hint: her special guest likes to “QUACK”)
