Quarter Amish Farm is owned by Russell and Liz Beiersdorfer. Guiding principles directing the farm mission are in providing opportunities for people of all ages to experience and learn about responsible agriculture. Visitors may pick and purchase chemically-free grown blackberries, experience nature, observe livestock, and learn about growing and preserving garden bounty.
Russell holds a degree from Purdue University in Horticulture and Ag Economics and has over 40 years experience growing fruits and vegetables; recently focusing on brambles. Liz holds an associate degree in Veterinary Technology, Bachelors of Music Education, and Masters of Education. She has over 35 years experience raising livestock, growing vegetables, preserving garden bounty and practicing self sufficiency arts and crafts. Using farm resources she makes goat milk soap and soft goat milk cheeses including ricotta, mozzarella and feta. Liz believes in relying on Nature when possible and living a simple lifestyle. As an educator for over 25 years, Liz loves to share knowledge with others whenever possible.
