Farm Staff

Austin Elling FamilySpring Creek Farm is a century farm located in north-central Iowa near the town of Latimer. For the past 130 years Spring Creek has been a diversified farm raising beef, poultry, hogs along with growing a variety of crops including corn, beans, alfalfa and oats.

The farm is owned and operated by the Elling family who have worked the land for 5 generations. The farm is approximately 240 acres with 150 tillable acres and 90 acres of permanent pasture. With the retirement of Fred Henry Elling in 2010, Spring Creek farm decided to return to its traditional roots by direct marketing its products to local and regional customers that were interested in high quality food produced with no additional antibiotics or growth hormones. Animals are housed and handled using traditional animal housing methods that allow for the animals to have access to the outdoors and express the natural traits and behaviors.
