The Yegerlehner Family
Alan and Mary, along with their daughter Kate, own and operate the farm located in Clay City, Indiana. Kate is the seventh generation of Yegerlehners to manage the farm, and her husband Doug helps however he can when his off-farm job allows. This crew takes care of the daily management of the animals, including milking, moving fences for grazing rotations, feeding and moving chickens in the eggmobiles on pasture, and egg collection/washing/packaging.
Alan and Mary also have two sons, Luke (married to Lauren) and Jess, who live and work off farm, and three energetic grandchildren, Eli, Lucy, and Adeline, who keep everyone on their toes!
Jay Heath joined the team in 2016 as chief butter maker. He comes to the farm weekly to churn the butter, which is a big help and allows Alan to focus on other work on the farm. Jay retired in 2016 after 20 years in the medical field. He
lives in Terre Haute with his wife Sarah. Their daughters Kate with her husband Lawerence, and Megan and her boyfriend Zach reside in the Indianapolis area. Jay and Sarah enjoy fishing, camping, and time with family and friends.
Although most of the ewes now were raised on the farm, Mike and Laura
Gentry still have some of the ewes they started their flock with nearly 6
years ago. The ewes are named after the ewes Laura remembers from her
mother's flock of 100 ewes. Growing up raising
sheep with her mom and sister, Laura was eager to get back to
shepherding when Mike and she built their home in rural Owen County.
The abundance of grassland and their efforts fencing off several
pastures for frequent rotation, made raising grass-fed lambs
a natural choice. Now they are pleased to offer the same lamb enjoyed
by their extended family (9 grandchildren now!) to yours!
