About Us / Mize Farm History: Raises Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle. Please call for purchasing information.\n\nWilliam and Andy Mize raise Animal Welfare Approved beef cattle on Mize Farm in Bunker Hill, IL. Mize Farm dates back to 1853 and has been in the Mize family for seven generations. William’s father raised dairy cows there before they switched over to their current herd of AWA Angus grassfed beef.\n\nWilliam and his son Andy were drawn to the AWA label as it seemed to describe what they were already doing on the farm. At Mize Farm, the cattle graze on 200 acres of south central Illinois’ rolling pastures. As the cows eat the grass- mostly Timothy and Brome- they produce nutrient-rich, organic fertilizer that nourishes the soil. So as the land feeds the animals, the animals feed the land.\n\nAWA beef from Mize Farm is sold at the Carbondale’s Farmers Market in Carbondale, IL by Andy every Saturday from April to November.
