Asgaard Farm and Dairy – Turbine #2

We are happy to announce a strong interest from Asgaard Farm and Dairy in Au Sable Forks, NY in becoming our second customer.  The former home of artist, writer, adventurer and political activist Rockwell Kent (1882-1971), Asgaard Farm not only served as the inspiration for many of Kent’s paintings, but was also a working dairy farm.   David Brunner and Rhonda Butler acquired the farm in 1988. After working several years to restore the land and buildings, they put the farm back into production in 2003.

Asgaard is a diversified family farm with a goat dairy and creamery at its core. Revolving around these activities are grass-fed and grass-finished beef together with pastured pork, poultry and eggs. For more details, check them out at or stop by and visit!
