Visit Goldenrust Farm near Dover, Minnesota. Meet farmer Jessica Desens, who along with her family raises chickens, beef cattle, pigs, and sheep on a 40 acre farm. Goldenrust Farm provides beef hot dogs and hamburgers to the Dover Eyota School district. On this virtual field trip, we will visit their farm to learn more about raising beef cattle, what they feed beef cattle and see the other livestock on their farm.
Jessica Desens grew up on a century farm near where her family raised sheep, beef cattle, and pigs. She met her husband, Peter at UW-River Falls, where she graduated with a degree in Horticulture. They purchased their current farm in 2011. Farming, gardening, and knowing how food was grown and why, has always been a passion of Jessica's.
