Slagel Family Farm

Slagel Family Farm is a fifth-generation livestock farm in central Illinois. LouisJohn Slagel, his wife Leslie and many family members are all involved in the day to day operations on the farm, located only a mile away from the original Slagel settlement dating back to 1888. The farm is similar to how their grandparents farmed, which means instead of building large high-tech factory farms, they raise livestock the good old-fashioned way. They run a small, diversified farm raising hogs, cattle, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, corn, soybeans, hay, and pumpkins. Slagel Family Farm controls every aspect of the operation from breeding and genetics to the feed rations fed to the livestock. They do not use growth hormones, steroids, or other growth enhancers, and feed primarily an organic based diet of grain, forage and pasture grasses. By combining the correct factors, they can present you with consistent, high quality, wholesome meat products for your family to enjoy.
