Marmilu Farms

Marmilu Farms A PASTURED-BASED FAMILY FARM DEDICATED TO PRODUCING THE BEST MEAT AND EGGS IN WEST TN. Marmilu Farms began as a hazy concept deep in Caleb’s mind years ago.
(50)

We (Caleb and Betsy) met each other at Wheaton College in suburban Chicago, a far cry from Tennessee, and farther still from sustainable agriculture. Betsy played lacrosse. Caleb was in Army ROTC. We spent our first eight years of marriage with Caleb as an Army officer, the latter part in Special Forces. Somewhere in the midst of 5 moves, 3 babies, and many months apart, we started to dream about farming. In 2012, we decided to pursue our dream. Caleb quit his job. We sold our house and most of our belongings, packed up a U-Haul, and drove from Southern California to a small farmhouse in the vast Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. We had only our dream. We knew almost nothing about farming, but a few years earlier we had learned of Joel Salatin and his family, who were featured in the award-winning documentary, Food, Inc., and also in the best-selling book, Omnivore’s Dilemma. At Polyface Farms, the Salatins for decades have pioneered sustainable, pasture-based farming. After corresponding and visiting the farm, they invited us to come learn from and work with them. We spent the next two years raising turkeys, chickens (both broilers and layers), cows, hogs, and sheep for Polyface’s buying clubs, restaurants, and farm customers. In the process, we learned. We learned about the particular character and needs of each animal. We learned how to nurture and restore depleted land. We also learned how to butcher, run fence, repair water lines, operate a wood-burning stove, and work together as a family day in and day out. Fall 2015 we moved back to Caleb’s hometown of Jackson, TN, with a vision to serve our neighbors by providing the healthiest, most delicious pasture-based eggs and meat in West Tennessee.

This summer has been BUSY! With having to move again last fall, this was our first summer in our new place which meant new water lines, electric fences, and new systems to implement based on our specific location. We rented our neighbor's 100 acres, which is where we run our cattle as well

Soil has a whole universe of life, and it's up to us to protect it! Farms like this are some of the most essential to ensuring a healthy planet, through using the right agricultural practices. After watching a Netflix documentary called "Kiss the Ground," I learned a lot about the ways we can come together to heal the planet and restore the ground. Regenerative agriculture is a way we can raise food products in a healthy way that protects the crop and the soil, while also returning CO2 emissions back into the ground. The film was super inspiring and it's motivated me to spread their powerful message while also joining the movement myself.
Also, found this list:
Have you guys stopped home delivery? I've been trying to place an order, but have been getting "ordering is currently closed" for several days.
I would love to know more about your bratwurst. What goes into it? Have you ever done a beef liverwurst? Thank you!
Marmilu Bacon cut to 1" pieces and crisped under the broiler. Thanks again Team Marmilu!
Good to see you in the Wheaton alumni magazine!
We loved our turkey! So glad we found your farm!
this is a testimony from a new milk customer in Memphis. "We really are blessed by your work to bring wholesome, delicious, quality milk to our community! We did enjoy the milk and hope to continue to purchase your product."
