Becker Farms was established Fall of 2007 after Kyle and Emily Becker purchased a 100 acre farm in Mooreland, Indiana.
Their initial focus was freezer beef and since that time, they have diversified their farm offerings to include pork, chicken, turkey, eggs, and milk. They sell their products direct-to-consumer at farmers markets and through a CSA program, as well as to restaurants in East-Central Indiana.
Kyle Becker was raised on a dairy-beef-and-grain farm, and has a B.S. in animal science and Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) from Purdue University. He works as a food animal veterinarian for Becker Food Animal Health Services. Emily Becker grew up in Kokomo, without an agricultural background, but has learned a lot about this important, ever-changing field since enrolling in the College of Agriculture at Purdue University where she earned a B.S. in food science. Emily continued her education with a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree from Indiana University.

The Heritage Foods cooperative was founded in 2001 to preserve endangered species of livestock from extinction. Their partner farmers grow 100% heritage breed pigs, turkeys, lamb, chickens, ducks, guineas, and geese. All animals are raised humanely, outdoors, on pasture, using traditional farming techniques. They reproduce naturally and are never fed any antibiotics or growth hormones. Heritage meats are juicy and tender from their marbling and boast a profound taste and depth of flavor that has not been squashed by a corporate culture that only cares about rapid production.
