Gerke Osage Vally Farm is proud to bring our community quality products
free from hormones, antibiotics and chemicals. Making available locally
grown pastured beef, pork, poultry, lamb, and eggs from pastured chickens.
After years of business travel Darin Gerke felt inspired to return to working the family farm. With wife Diana ('Creations by Diana' ), sons Blake and Lucas and daughter Caitlyn, the Gerkes are committed to a way life that benefits the animals, the soil, our environment and our community. Darin Gerke is available to provide educational presentations to area schools and organizations on the benefits of Polyculture Practices and Sustainable Agriculture.
Darin Gerke encourages all he encounters to support the Boonville Farmer's Market and to buy local. Darin also pens a featured column, 'Living in the margin', in the Cooper County Voice.
To others words like 'sustainable agriculture' or 'polycultural practices' may be new fangled terms. But at Gerkes Osage Valley Farm they are not just words, they describe our way our life. We believe that using polycultural practices improves our farm by reviving the living soil while at the same time producing the highest quality of meat.
