Meet the Farmer

Hi, I’m Ashley – and I love growing good food!

My family moved from the suburbs to 5 acres when I was 14 years old and it didn’t take me long to fall in love with country living. By the time I graduated from high school, I knew I wanted to be a farmer.

When I started raising my own chickens, I was blown away by their delectable flavor. Plus, it felt so good knowing they lived a happy life on pasture and dined on a quality, non-GMO diet.

For years, I only raised enough meat for my family, but people started asking, “where can I buy good chicken like this?”

In order to get some experience growing on a commercial scale, I spent 5 months as an intern at Polyface Farms, helping manage thousands of pasture-raised chickens while learning from one of the leading sustainable farming experts, Joel Salatin.

Now, I raise hundreds of birds every year so local families can enjoy farm fresh, pasture-raised chicken and turkey.

Square Root Farms is a small, family farm on 13 acres in Corcoran, MN.

We are committed to providing Minnesota families with local, pasture-raised, non-GMO poultry products.
