About us

Gasper Family Farm is a small, diversified family farm near Fort Scott, KS. We produce grassfed beef, dairy, pork, chicken, duck and rabbit from healthy, happy pastured animals.
We serve consumers in eastern Kansas, especially the Kansas City metro area, Lawrence, Topeka, and Fort Scott.

It is our goal to provide natural, health building food for local families. We believe in raising animals as God intended by working with nature instead of against it. Not only does this make for a healthier environment, but also healthier animals and tastier food that is better for you!

We practice organic methods. All our animals are raised without antibiotics, growth hormones or other chemicals! Our pigs and poultry are only fed locally grown, GMO-FREE, certified organic grains. Our low-stress handling and production techniques keep the animals healthy and happy. Instead of harmful chemicals we use natural healing practices like vitamin and mineral supplements and homeopathic treatments to maintain the health of our livestock.

We hope you enjoy our food!

Pete, Susan, Daniel, Nathan, Timothy, Matthew, John, and Ruth Gasper


Our Products

Grassfed Raw Dairy (FRESH UNPROCESSED RAW MILK, I.E. REAL MILK)

Our raw milk, cheese, butter, cream, yogurt, and colostrum come from grassfed dairy cows. This food is high in health building Omega-3's and CLA's. This is because our cows are raised and milked in their natural pasture environment using rotational grazing, low stress handling techniques while being fed only as much organic grain as is necessary to balance the nutrition in the grass (and none when possible). As the pastures on our new farm improve we'll get back to being 100% grassfed on the dairy. We don't use any pharmaceuticals, rBGH or other growth hormones on our dairy cows.

Organically Fed, Pastured Whole Chicken

Our chickens are raised on pasture and only fed locally grown organic grains. We raise slower growing broiler breeds that take 12 to 16 weeks to reach butcher weight. Why? Slower growth means better flavor and avoids the health issues of the sickly Cornish cross birds (supermarket chicken). These wonderful tasting chickens are a nice balance of leg, thigh, and breast meat. We feed a custom mix feed without any added pharmaceuticals or arsenic. Folks regularly praise the exceptional taste and quality of our chicken.

We're taking pre-orders for 2014 chickens right now. Visit our chicken page to learn more about our awesome tasting chicken and how to order. Do not delay, these will sell out well before butcher!

Organically Fed, Pastured Pork

Our organically fed, heritage breed, Gloucestershire Old Spots pigs are raised naturally and humanly on pasture without chemicals or nose rings. Their food comes from a combination of pasture, hay, forage crops, 100% grassfed dairy by-products from our own dairy, and locally grown organic grains. This unique combination of rare genetics and quality diet make for exquisite tasting pork. Our pigs are never confined and born on pasture. We do not use farrowing crates.

We are currently taking orders for Bulk Freezer Pork by the side or whole for 2014 pickup from the butcher. These are reserved at weaning and custom raised to butcher.

Our Pork Family Packs come in 10 and 20 pound sizes and are a great way to try out our pork or to get pork at a better price than individual cuts without needing a deep freezer. Each 10# pack contains approximately a 2-3# roast, one package each of chops and bacon, three 1 pound packages of ground sausage or fresh pork, and two misc cuts. Actual cut weights will vary but it adds up to very close to 10#. A 20# pack is composed of two 10# packs at a further discount. A 10# pack fills a brown paper grocery bag about half way and a 20# pack fills it. We are taking reservations now for pickup at the July drop-offs.

Our Pork CSA delivers 10 pounds of our succulent pork every month for the next 6 months while saving you over $200 off the retail price! Pork cuts will vary but typically each months delivery will contain an approximately a 2-3# roast, one package each of chops and bacon, three 1 pound packages of ground sausage or fresh pork, and two misc cuts.

100% Grassfed Beef

Our 100% grassfed beef is produces from naturally raised cattle that have spent their entire life on pasture. They have been fed only pasture, local hay, and non-grain forage crops. Like all our animals they are handled using low-stress techniques. The result is healthy, tasty beef high in Omega-3's and CLA's.

Our great tasting Whole Cow Ground Beef is IN STOCK NOW for pickup at our monthly drop-off in Overland Park and Lawrence by pre-order. We just absolutely love this product. This ground beef comes from the whole cow: we grind all the best steak cuts into this to produce a high quality ground with a taste above and beyond anything you'll ever find in the grocery store. Place your reservation now.

Our Beef Family Packs come in 10 and 20 pound sizes and are a great way to try out our beef or to get beef at a better price than individual cuts without needing a deep freezer. Each 10# pack contains approximately 4-6 steaks, 3-4 1# packages of ground beef, one 2-3# roast and a couple miscellaneous cuts. Actual cut weights will vary but it adds up to very close to 10#. A 20# pack is just two 10# packs at a further discount. A 10# pack fills a brown paper grocery bag about half way and a 20# pack fills it. Availability is limited since 100% grassfed beef requires prime green growing grass to finish out. We're taking reservations now for fall delivery.

We are currently taking names for the waiting list for 2015 Bulk Freezer Beef (split-side, side, or whole) for pickup from the butcher. 2014 is sold out. See our Beef Family Packs or Whole Cow Ground beef.

Pastured Chicken Eggs

Our acclaimed eggs are from pastured hens. These chickens spend their life on pasture foraging for bugs, seeds, and grass. They are supplemented with locally grown organic grain, organic minerals and organic kelp to ensure nutritious eggs for your family.

Some stores sell eggs from 'vegetarian' chickens. But that is not their natural diet and is only possible if kept confined in cages or barns. Our hens live on pasture eating a natural diet, including bugs and earthworms, to produce eggs of exceptional quality.

Pastured Duck

In 2014 we are raising Silver Appleyard and Peking ducks. Ducks forage for a great deal of their own food, keeping our farm clear of ticks, chiggers, and mosquitoes and producing exquisite meat. Their diet is supplemented with locally grown organic grain.

Our whole pastured duck is available by pre-order only. Email or call 913-723-3838 to get on the waiting list.

Pastured Duck Eggs

Our ducks spend their life roaming our pastures foraging for bugs, seeds, and grass. They are supplemented with locally grown organic grain, organic minerals and organic kelp to ensure nutritious eggs for your family.

Duck eggs are richer and fuller tasting than most chicken eggs. We've been told these taste like chicken eggs used to taste. They are also soy and corn free.

Goose

In the spring we have a limited quantity of goose eggs available.

We're taking names for the waiting list for '15 whole dressed goose.

Rabbits

In late 2012 we put together a small herd of rare breed American Rabbits. We're working on building an innovative new rabbitry designed to provide the most natural environment possible. We're expecting to have rabbit available to eat in late 2014.

Handmade with Love

Susan is doing a number of handmade, made to order knitted products. Wool Socks, Mittens, Stocking Caps, and Washcloths. These high quality, long lasting items make excellent gifts for yourself or others!
