Our Story

Fields of Gold Farm is a historic farm built in the late 30’s, early 40’s by a German inventor and clockmaker, Herman E. (Harry) Schulse and his family, wife Martha and daughter Nona.  By the early 40’s all the main buildings had been constructed and put into use.  In addition to the main house, there was a shop for equipment repairs, a farm manager’s home, a springhouse, a smokehouse that cures meats and vegetables (and can also flavor cheeses too), a chicken barn for egg layers and a large livestock barn for cows, horses, pigs and goats.  This 40-acre farm was completely self-sustaining and productive for many years and provided a livelihood, good wholesome food for all who worked and grew up here and a thriving business.  All the original buildings are still intact and maintained to this day.

Our family settled here on this farm in the mid-60’s and quickly became acclimated to the farming life.  We worked the soil and grew a large vegetable garden, planted and harvested many different varieties of apples for the local juice co-op facility, baled timothy and clover hay several times a year and kept many horses (one of our passions growing up).  Looking back in reflection, our family’s conscious choice to create roots in agriculture, plus living and raising children in a more rural life setting, was quite progressive for that period of time.  It provided the framework for how the farm has evolved into today and the path we choose to continually develop in the philosophies and practices of healthy sustainable farming and restoration agriculture.  Building community and supporting life through these important principles helps to create a good foundation of health and vitality throughout the farm.

Today, Fields of Gold Farm is a Certified Organic and Bio-Dynamic working farm with much to offer our community, both currently and expanding into the future.  Our focus is on nutrient dense, high vitality fruits and vegetables, meats, eggs, heritage breed livestock and a goat dairy following the same protocols that are health giving and life sustaining.  Our plan for the farm is to create the best-of-the-best foods and products for our many farm fans.  We also want to create a hub that nurtures our reconnection with food and an appreciation for ‘back-to-the-land’ ways.  Some of the important facets for the farm project are:

• high nutrition fruits and vegetables
• goat dairy products from our creamery such as gourmet gelato, cheeses, kefir, yogurt, butter
• handcrafted goat milk soaps with biofeedback frequencies (only ones on the market)
• mixed berries, including seasonal u-pick times
• pastured beef, lamb and poultry
• healthy free range eggs
• beyond organic & bio-dynamic transplants
• farm store for fresh food and provisions
• soil testing lab for biological agriculture
• high vitality water
• workshops, lectures and classes
• children’s programs
• agricultural mentoring and life skills training
• farm tours and year round family activities
