Deutz Heritage Farm is a 4th generation farm located in Marshall, MN.
The “home farm” has been in the Deutz family since 1920, with Allen and Kat being the 4th generation to reside there, behind Allen’s parents, Paul and Fran, and grandparents, Franklin and Augusta. The farm has a long history in dairy and pork, however as the times have changed, so has the farm. Today Deutz Heritage raises antibiotic-free outdoor pork, grass-fed Red Angus Beef, and, seasonally, free range chickens.
Beyond the livestock, Deutz Heritage is also moving the farm towards self-sustainability. A diverse crop rotation along with the use of cover crops and livestock integration are helping move the farm towards a totally close-looped system, reducing purchased inputs on the farm. Each year the farm progresses a little more, adding new practices to the mix. In 2018, some of the big changes consisted of an annual pasture for full season grazing, raising conventional non-GMO corn for livestock feed, and adding a hog pasture for sows. With a focus on continued movement towards complete sustainability, Deutz Heritage hopes to achieve this with support from the local community in this new business venture.
