Our Family Farm

Buckham Farms is family-owned and operated with several farmsteads across Kalamazoo County in Oshtemo and Schoolcraft. We own and rent 1,1oo acres, growing corn, seed corn, soybeans, wheat, alfalfa and pasture, on which we graze breeding sheep and cattle.
Our commercial sheep and calves are born on pasture and finished on grain and hay. Most of our feeds come straight from our own fields, and the animal bedding and manure are spread on the fields to fertilize and improve soil quality, keeping our farm cyclic and local. We use sustainable conservation practices like crop rotation and no-till as well to keep our soil and crops healthy.
Currently we own about 30 cross-bred cows, mainly Maine, Angus and Simmental crosses. We finish our own calves for market and keep back our own replacement heifers. Our purebred flocks consist of about 45 Shropshires and 60 Suffolks. We also have 75 Wether-type sheep and around 800 commercial ewes.
