Otter Creek Organic Farm
Gary and Rosie Zimmer began farming in the 1970s, raising their children on the land and instilling in them an interest in agriculture and conservation. In 1994, Gary, Rosie and their son Nick bought Otter Creek Farm, originally a crop farm, and expanded into organic dairy farming. Nick Zimmer and three other families now run Otter Creek Organic Farm, an operation that includes 250 cows, pasture-raised beef and hogs and pasture raised poultry.
