The name Carmen-Glenn Farms comes from the first names of our fathers; Carmen Sergi and Glenn Morton. The Sergi family raised cattle and fruit crop in a small town in southern Italy. After migrating to the United States and Australia in the early 1920’s, many family members continued their legacy of farming. The Morton family moved to Adams County, IL in the late 1700’s when they purchased their first farm and got to work. Glenn Morton, the fourth generation of Morton’s who cared for the land, continued his father’s focus of Black Angus breeding and pasture raised beef and rotational crop farming. The farms continue in the Morton family today with over five generations stewarding the land near the Mississippi River Basin, well-known for its rich black soil.
Carrying on our family traditions, we are raising our own herd of beef cattle. Our Black Angus, 100% grass-fed MOSA Certified organic herd is located on our farms in south central Wisconsin’s beautiful “driftless” area. The “driftless” area is known for its carved river valleys, gently rolling hills, and pastures created by escaping the last glacial period. While never touched by glaciers, the area is known for its beautifully sculptured topography.
Our cattle are grass-fed on 110 acres of certified organic pastures. We practice rotational grazing throughout the grass season, and feed organic hay in the non-pasture months while maintaining complete access to pasture and our cattle loafing shed.
