Dean Carlson, the owner of Wyebrook Farm in Honey Brook, is trying to set an example with his small-scale sustainable farm, writes J.F. Pirro for The Hunt magazine.
Eight years ago, Carlson gave up his 15-year financial career to buy his 360-acre farm. Now, he and his wife, Emelie Ehn Carlson, are providing a healthy alternative to processed food with their buy-fresh, buy-local beef, pork, and chicken products.
The Carlsons own La Divisa Meats at Reading Terminal Market, and Dean has also been dipping into wholesale distribution for retailers and restaurants. But he says that “not every farm would do it this way.”
In fact, despite the odds being stacked against him, he firmly believes farmers can still make a decent living. To prove this, the Carlsons regularly serve their fresh meat at their restored barn eatery on the farm.
