Growing up in rural Wisconsin, Kelly saw first-hand what it was like to get eggs from the neighbor and milk from the farmer down the road. Those days are long gone, and small farms are slowly fading away to large grow operations, where little concern is given to the needs of the farmer, much less the animal. It’s about money, and lots of it for some, and not much for others.
We Support Local Farmers, Producers and Businesses
Kangaroostaurant has decided that we want to support the local farmers and growers and give them the opportunity to get their goods to a larger market. Most of the items we use can be purchased either at local grocers or farm markets. If you ever wonder where something is from, ASK!!! We are more than happy to tell you. We are very proud of the relationships we have built and continue to build with the local agricultural community and hope that we can help keep our customers informed about the wonderful, delicious, sustainably and ethically produced items in our state.
Red Barn Family Farms – The best cared for cows produce the best milk and cheese. Red Barn Family Farms brand dairy products are based on that simple principle. “Red Barn” farms have been selected for this very reason – their “old-fashioned” commitment to cow care.
Red Barn farms have had their farms validated by the American Humane Association. You can trust that healthy cows will provide you with the wholesome, nutritious milk and cheese that you will soon grow to love as much as we do!
Olden Produce - Olden Produce is grown in a sustainable all natural/chemical free manner. Olden Produce also raises chickens in a natural, free from cages environment. Because of the produce operation, the chickens aren’t able to free range, however, they do have a large “pasture” in which their Koop is built and where they can roam around as they will. All eggs are hand gathered and hand washed.
Carlena Farms - We have begun purchasing pork from Carlena Farms. Owner Harvey Work is committed to raising healthy pastured pigs. I met Harvey for the first time at the Olden Produce breakfast on the farm. Our goal is to begin purchasing whole hogs from Carlena Farms through Olden Produce. You too can purchase this pork by contacting Harvey Works @ firstname.lastname@example.org or Tracy Vinz at Olden Produce.
Venneford Farm Country Meats - Venneford Farms raise their cattle naturally with NO hormones, NO steroids, NO antibiotics for 12 months prior to butchering and NO cheap feed substitutes which can alter the flavor of the meat. The cows at Venneford Farms are pastured as well as receive frequent human contact. Venneford Farms is state inspected and licensed to sell farm-raised beef and pork by individual packages from their farm and farmers markets. All of their meat is cut, wrapped, weighed and processed by a professional dedicated butcher, Adams Meats in Marion WI.
