We are Jason and Kimberly Zerkle (rhymes with “circle”) of Clinton County, Ohio. Together with our three children we live on a beautiful farm raising grass-fed beef, pigs, and chickens. We hope you will follow along on our adventure of stewarding the land to produce high quality nutritious food from field to table.
Returning to our heritage.
Like many farm kids, we left the farm, went to college, got a degree, got a job and settled in to suburban life. But something was calling us back to our agricultural roots.
You can take the kid off the farm, but you can’t take the farm out of the kid.
After deciding that we wanted to grow our own food, all we needed was a farm.
On a quiet county road, we found a listing for our dream farm.
In 2007, we found a perfect 26 acre farm to start living our dream. The farm needed a lot of work to convert from a soybean field to a vibrant, prolific pasture. Plus we started from scratch; we needed seed, fence, cows, pigs, chickens, equipment, barns, and lots of determination. We are so thankful to all the folks who have encouraged us along the way. Because of you, we can grow and raise nutritious authentic food for our children and yours.
You are what you eat.
We are committed to clean, healthy food. We do not spray our fields with chemicals of any kind. Our cattle are grass-fed only and are not given growth hormones. We use antibiotics only when necessary to protect the animal’s health and vaccinate regularly to maintain herd health.
We have room to bloom.
In 2023, we start a new chapter at Sunnyrock Farm, by growing summer flower bouquets. Just like our beef, we want healthy, beautiful flowers. This means no chemical herbicides and insecticides. We only want the best for you from our fields to your table.
