Hentze Family Farm

Hey! We started a Go Fund Me campaign!

Jun 9, 2020 – Jul 9, 2020
I'm Patrick Fay, the outlaw here at Hentze Family Farm (I married Johan Hentze's great-great-granddaughter, Kasey). I helm the burgeoning hospitality aspects of the farm. Although I am the farmhand, dishwasher, and unpaid intern as well.

It has always been the goal of my wife and I, and the family, to obtain a liquor license to round out our hospitality ambitions here. Our wedding on the farm years ago being the epiphany on how we might add other revenue streams to our small family farm.

Since that moment we have expanded our vision to include a possible nano-brewery (we discovered wild hops on the eastern border of the farm), a small food production facility for sauces and such, expanding the concession aspects, and, of course, farm weddings and events.

We have sunk everything we have into expanding the concession stand we call the Cook Shack after enjoying a modest success last year. We were able to take the concept of "farm to table" and adapt that to what we call "field to mouth". We offer items like a pulled pork sandwich with a black cherry barbecue sauce. The sauce features our own black cherries from our orchard. The bratwurst we serve features a warm bacon apple slaw with our own apples (when in season). At one point last year our hamburger was all Hentze on your plate! Our beef, lettuce, tomato and onion. I was very proud of that! How much more localvore can one get?
