Straight Up Outside uses regenerative farming methods to return the soil to what it once was. Food from Straight Up Outside farm is an environmentally safe way to keep meat and dairy in your diet; in a grassland (prairie) biome like southern Minnesota, that means a focus on grazing animals that are 100% grass-fed. Our beef and dairy rotate through new “paddocks” of grass every few days and eat only hay or alfalfa in the winter. Pasture based foods also have more nutrition than what is typically bought from the grocery store!
Farm Shop Hours:

Starting a farm of this nature is a slow process! As we build capacity and nutrition in our soil, we will regularly offer nutritious dairy and meat products.
