Hello Everyone! My name is Dana Workman Stacey and I am the owner/operator of Grass Powered Poultry & Meats in Hillsboro, Ohio. I grew up a horse girl in the suburbs of Zanesville, Ohio, but always had a passion for all things farming.
I recently left my job as a rural property appraiser to be a full-time Farmer and Mom to our girls Eliza and Brynn. Jesse works for our local Soil and Water Conservation District and supports local farmers as an Independent Crop Insurance Adjuster. The rest of our time is is spent building our dream farm, taking pictures of our adorable cows and kids, and doing our best to slow down and enjoy family farm life.
Our pasture-based farm venture began in 2012 when we raised a batch of pastured meat chickens for ourselves, family and friends. Along the way, we added laying hens, turkeys, Scottish Highland Cattle and teamed up with another local farmer to raise pastured Heritage Breed hogs.
The more we learned about the issues of our current food system and how food impacts our health, the more committed we became to growing a stronger local food economy and making sure our community had access to wholesome pasture-raised products. We are relearning many animal husbandry and cooking skills lost over time and doing our best to encourage others on the same path.
As busy working parents, we understand how tough it can be to balance it all and get healthy, homecooked meals on the table. We also understand the importance of having a connection with the source of your food and the positive impact it has on your family. We hope you will join us on the journey!
