About Us / Bear Creek Farm & Ranch History: Our farm has had no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbacides since we have owned it (April, 1997). We raise chickens for eggs, buff orpingtons & black australorps lay brown eggs and our ameraucana's lay blue to green eggs. For meat we raise cornish/rock cross. All of our chickens are pasture raised with no hormones or antibiotics. We are planning on adding some heritage turkeys in 2009. We grow produce seasonally, with sprouts grown weekly, year round. Food Fantasies in Springfield carries our sprouts. We are at the Springfield Old Capital Farmers' Market (downtown) Saturday's May through October. We are at the State Fairgrounds in Springfield for the Farmers' Market on Thursday evenings (seasonal). Our first grass fed beef will be available February 2009. We raise Belgian draft horses and draft mules. They also help us work the farm.
