Eight Plates Farm

Pastured cattle and hogs raised on our Michigan family farm provide our customers with quality cuts of beef and pork at their table. Our grazed and grown approach allows our animals to flourish on quality forages and grain in a natural setting.

Our Story: We're just a family that loves agriculture and growing crops plus livestock for our local community, country, and the world. This love has been nurtured since I was young, and it is our hope that we are passing on this same love to our children. A love for the land, a love for collaboration and teamwork, and a love and respect for the Lord and his blessings.

I'm Carla Schultz, and along with my husband Paul, and our 4 kids, Silas (age 13), Eve (age 11), Phoebe (age 10), and Piper (age 8), plus my parents: Mitchell and Krystal LaBair, we run Eight Plates Farm.

Why Eight Plates?

Well at our farm, everyone loves a good meal, so when we are all together at the table, there are eight plates. But......visitors are always welcome, and this is one way we can bring our farm to you.  In the midst of our filled life, we still love to sit down and enjoy a delicious meal, with many of the ingredients coming from our farm. And that's why we wanted to share them with the rest of you:)

Sometimes in our life we tend to forget that many people we meet throughout our life don't live the lifestyle that our family does day after day. We WANT to tell you our story, we WANT to answer your questions, and we WANT you to know that we take pride and care in the job we call our life.

On any given day you can find us outside, either tending to our hogs or cattle, or prepping equipment for the crops that we grow.
