Our Story

Brad and Heather Nelson manage Sweet Home Ranch with their sons Caleb and Jedidiah. Caleb and Jedidiah are the 4th generation to live and work on Sweet Home Ranch. Heather’s Father, Eric, and Grandfather, Edward, still contribute to the Ranch’s success whether it is helping to build fence or remembering where that old water line is buried. Their guidance has set the stage for Sweet Home Ranch to continue through the generations.

Sweet Home Ranch is located in Northeast Missouri where the Des Moines River bluffs and the flat prairie meet. Located at the top of Sweet Home Hill in Sweet Home Township we are easy to find halfway between Peaksville and the Battle of Athens State Park. We are truly in the Heartland with Iowa and Illinois just a short skip across the river.

We strive to produce the healthiest animals while improving the quality of our land at the same time. Healthy soil, makes healthy grass, grows healthy animals, produce healthy meat and milk = healthy families. We would love to help your family live healthier. Call us anytime, we would love for you to visit our farm. To be truly sustainable we must provide for today without taking away from tomorrow.
