Certified Organic Farming
Swan Land and Cattle Co. grows top quality grains on 1100+ acres of prime farmland in north-central Iowa. All of our land and the crops we produce are certified organic by the Iowa Department of Agriculture. We were among the first farms to be certified organic in our area of Iowa.
As an organic operation we employ a multi-crop rotation system of corn, soy beans, oats, and other crops. We never use chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Instead we utilize natural fertilizers and techniques that greatly reduces the risk of harmful agricultural run-off, substantially increases soil health, and produces high yields comparable to those gained through conventional farming techniques.
