Bio

Nate and Lou Ann Robinson, sixth generation farmers, with their family and friends bring a wide variety of products to the market in order to be "Your Connection to Your Food." They value the importance of knowing where your food comes from and educating others about the process of food production. They sell "Pork You Can Trust," and chicken raised naturally and without antibiotics or hormones along with 100% grass-fed cattle. They engage in environmentally sound practices for their grass pastures and follow a forest stewardship plan that allows cover for wildlife, shade for their free-roaming Berkshire and Duroc pigs and trees for firewood. It truly is a family farm, as all four children have a role in the business. Nate says, "We strive to raise a healthy, happy hog that will provide you with tender, flavorful quality meat." In addition to the usual cuts of pork, Jake’s offers smoked chops and bacon without added nitrates, 10 types of MSG-free sausage, and ready-to-eat pork sticks. Jake's also carries wild-caught Great Lakes fish. The Robinsons have paired with the Fish Assessment Biologist of the Chippewa Indian tribes to bring straight to customers fresh, filleted, pin-boned and flash-frozen day-of-catch fish from the Great Lakes. Working with the biologist allows Jake's to pinpoint each week where the fish were caught and to track information on the sustainability of the lakes.
