Sandhill Acres is a heritage farm located in Chelsea (Tama County), established by the Musel family in 1865. The land sits above the expansive Otter Creek Marsh which is home to sandhill cranes, trumpeter swans and a wide diversity of flora and fauna. Brad and Margaret Wolter and Cindy Hadish recently purchased the 40-acre farm from their relatives and are in the process of breathing new life into the 1890 homestead and surrounding land. They currently maintain a small herd of Kiko goats which they sell at nearby livestock auctions and grow chemical-free vegetables in the sandy soil where their ancestors thrived for generations. The mission of Sandhill Acres is to nurture a sustainable farm and provide healthy food to the community while being good stewards of the land.
