Michael & Courtney Gutschenritter | Three Brothers Farm


Michael and Courtney Gutschenritter, along with their three small children, own and operate Three Brothers Farm in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin. The 100-acre farm is a conservation-focused, planted entirely in perennials. The Gutschenritters produce pasture-raised eggs from 2,800 laying hens; grass-fed lamb; wool blankets and sheepskins from their flock of 120 Shetland sheep; and custom-graze 25 of their neighbor’s bred dairy heifers. They sell their eggs in local grocery stores and direct-market their lamb and wool products.

They also make and sell innovative farm manuals, including their sliding fence system for their chickens, which allows them to move their coops and electric netting without handling. Join Michael and Courtney to learn how they bring a conservation mindset to establishing, managing and marketing their multi-species grazing operation.


A meal will follow the field day.
