Pasture raised, organic fed, free range & handcrafted Mossycup Farms takes its name from the huge, old mossycup oaks covering the property.
Also known as bur oak, the trees drop plenty of acorns with fringed caps that look like “mossy cups.”
Being connected to the food we eat is important to us. When we purchased our farm in 2015, our goal was to raise the highest quality food possible for our family and to teach our kids the importance of knowing where their food comes from. Mossycup Farms is small, and we like it that way. But it h
as produced well, and we are now happy to be able to offer our products for sale. Our 10-acre farm just north of Clear Lake, Iowa, was originally a dairy farm. We’ve restored the pasture, buildings, and fencing and constructed a new home for our family. Using certified organic feed and pasture grazing, we raise heritage breed pork; free-range geese, ducks, quail and chickens for meat and eggs. We produce amazing, pure-white lard for cooking and handmade lard soaps using my grandmother’s recipe. Mossycup Farms offers products direct from the farm, online, and wholesale through restaurants and grocery stores.

This weekend was spent processing venison! We add 20% ground pork fat to the venison when we grind it (the pork fat is available in our farm store!) and it makes a great burger patty. You can use it any way you would any ground meat for spaghetti, tacos, meat loaf etc.
If you're processing your own, we have a kit that makes it easy and guarantees deliciousness: bit.ly/DIYvenisonkit2023

The farm store will be open today but not until noon as we’ll be busy clearing snow this morning. Lots of newly restocked pork cuts and sausages and even eggs!
We picked up feed for our pregnant sows (their babies are due next month!) and starter feed for freshly hatched birds! Kind of like feeding a small army, eh? 🐷🐣

Even though we sell a special cast iron seasoning, if you’ve got lard on hand, it will do the trick for seasoning your pans, too! One big difference between the two is that lard needs to be refrigerated while our other cast iron seasoning oil is shelf stable. Here’s how we season our pans with lard.
Farm store and delivery update: our full variety of pork cuts are now available at the farm store and online. Eggs have been more plentiful and so we’ve made some of those available through our website for local pick up and delivery too.

Oh hey, hi, hello… says the group of naughty teenage hogs that dug a hole under the fence and greeted me upon my return home! 🤦🏼♀️
Ever wondered what a peacock call sounds like? Carl makes this sound whenever a car drives by or he hears a loud noise. 🦚
It’s too hot to do anything right now except sit under the shade of a tree with Ruby & watch the piglets play #pastureraised #heritagehogs #shadetree #pigletsofinstagram #clearlakeia
It’s raining… again. This group of piglets is cozy in the barn though and will enjoy playing in the mud later when the sun comes out #pigletsofinstagram #pastureraised #organicfed
Carl finally had some of his own to show off for! The baby peacocks (Linda & Bob) are 8 months old and it’s finally warm enough for them to be outside with the rest of the flock. Lookin’ good, Carl! 🦚
Our barn cam picks up funny little moments like this that are too good not to share! Playful pigs! 🐷
Oh you know, just catching myself on camera accidentally letting a couple pigs out. At least the dog liked it! 🤣
