Field Sparrow Farms is a family-run business. Henry and Sarah Bakker believe responsible and innovative farming strategies benefit our customers, producers, the community as a whole, and the health of the earth. We are committed to producing premium meats in an ecologically sustainable way and providing our customers with a local alternative to factory-farmed meat.
Protecting habitat for grassland bird species is a main feature of our management practices. Grassland bird species, including the Bobolink, Eastern Bluebird, Northern Harrier, and, of course, the Field Sparrow, are declining significantly due to habitat loss. Bird-friendly agricultural practices, such as rotational grazing, delayed haying, and protecting riparian areas, work to increase usable nesting sites for these species.
