A Five Generation Family Farm

We are a fifth generation family farm located in Fowler, Michigan. My Great Great Grandfather, Lawrence Frechen, bought 100 acres in the Fowler area and settled there. The farmstead went to John & Mary Frechen, who accumulated another 120 acres across the road that my grandfather, Roy Frechen (above right) bought in the mid twentieth century. The farm was then purchased by Bruce Frechen (above left), who owns most of the land today. It is a now a Centennial Farm, with over 100 years of agricultural tradition and practice. Today, Red Timber Ranch is continuing the agrarian journey started over 100 years ago, and looks to the past and future to find a balance of old-style animal husbandry that utilizes technology in a prudent, respectful way.
