Dick and Kim Cates operate Cates Family Farm, a grass-fed farm near Spring Green in Iowa County. The farm includes 700 acres of managed grazing land and 200 acres of managed forest. They direct market their pasture-raised steers to grocery stores, restaurants, cafeterias and households around southern Wisconsin and the Chicago area.
Now after five generations, Jerry and his brother, Mark, are proud to carry on their family’s farming tradition at Sun Prairie’s longest running family farm. “I love what I do, it doesn’t really get better than this,” Bradley said from inside his combine on a pleasant October day.
