Mossycup Farms

Mossycup Farms Our mission is to raise the highest quality food possible for our family and to make those products available for others to enjoy. Our self service farm store is open Tuesday through Saturday, 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

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 w

Our peacock Carl has been working hard on a new product in our store: earrings! 🦚️

Before the fall hits, Carl loses his feathers (it doesn't hurt him at all!) and he spends the winter growing a beautiful new spread to show off in spring and summer. We put his feather to use to make some fun earrings!

If you shop our farm store regularly, you've likely noticed a lack of items in stock. It's not that we haven't taken the time to stock shelves and inventory, it's that we keep selling out! Pre-orders have kept things flying out of our store quicker than we can replace items. That said, if you're hoping to have ham on the table for the holidays, we recommend ordering early so you don't miss out. Make sure you're following us here and you're signed up for our emails so you don't miss word of our holiday bundles and pre-orders. Sign up for emails here: https://bit.ly/MCFNewsletter

We had a great time last week at our soap making workshop! Attendees learned the ins and outs of how to make their own soaps, from ingredients, to formulations, and how to store it when finished. Everyone chose their own blend of essential oils and herbal add-ins to make soap bars they can take home and enjoy, plus they now have all the info they need to make it again on their own. So much fun! 🧼

Tonight we dined on Mossycup Farms Iowa Chops prepared sous vide and finished on the grill, together with steamed veggies topped with what we refer to at our house as "the good butter" (Hope Creamery butter also from Mossycup). SO good!
❤️ Mossycup lard! 🐖
Mossycup Farms!!!!! Can’t wait for more chicken!
Thank you, Mossycup Farms! Animals raised in awesome conditions (belly rubs for birthing mama sows!). A Farm Her who cares deeply for creatures under her watchful eyes. Feed and grazing that lead to the best tasting meat! After seeing “Eating Animals”, I’m even more grateful to be your customer. You and your products are top of the line!
Thanks for your kind words and photos on Facebook today. just missed you before you left this morning
Well, we should have taken a picture, but it's all bones now... We are celebrating a night at home with a garden salad from our backyard AND Mossy Cup sirloin pork chops. Amazing!! Ron was making happy sounds. Glad we don't have people close to us 😅. Great job, Farmer Laura Tidrick!
