Crestview Farms
At Crestview farms we keep quality as our main focus, and we always have. If you are interested in adding some industry leading Hereford genetics to your herd, please give us a call. We always have sale cattle available, and we are always willing to help in any way we can.
Crestview Farms
Founded in 1942, Crestview Farms has been a grain operation since the beginning. We strive to take good care of our own land and the ground that our landlords have trusted us with for many years. We grow mostly corn, soybeans and wheat, and also grow hay for our cattle operation.

We take pride in our daily work of providing food for the world, not only through our grain farm, but also our livestock operations. Farming is a challenge, but it’s something we enjoy each day. It’s a way of life we all appreciate and wouldn’t trade for anything. If you are a landowner, we’d welcome the opportunity to talk with you about taking care of your land in the future. Contact Dennis at 574-457-6010 or email Katie (katie@crestviewcommodities.com).

Hereford Cattle
 
We have a cow-calf operation consisting of 60 registered Hereford cows. Dennis started raising Herefords as 4-H projects in the 1960s and passed on the tradition to his daughters when they started 4-H. Most of the cows we currently have started as 4-H projects. What started as something small has now grown into a big part of our farm. We just finished expanding our feedlot area so we can finish our own calves more efficiently and buy feeder calves, too. We sell 4-H calves, replacement heifers, bulls and freezer beef. Contact Katie (katie@crestviewcommodities.com) if we can assist you in your cattle operation.

Crestview Farms Beef
We have home-grown fully-cooked canned beef available for sale at the farm.
This delicious product is convenient and very versatile!  We use it for beef and noodles, Italian beef sandwiches, enchiladas and beef barbeque sandwiches... In fact, the barbeque recipe on the back of the label is one that Grandma Margaret Darr created and we still use often!  

We are proud to announce that One Ten Craft Meatery in Warsaw is now serving Crestview Farms beef! Email Katie at katie@crestviewcommodities.com for pricing and availability.
Hereford pigs
 
The Hereford hog venture started in 1997 when we purchased our first two gilts and a boar.  Since that time our herd has grown rapidly.  The most recent success was celebrated when Leslie showed the 2010 Reserve National Grand Champion Gilt at the National Hereford Hog Show.  Kelly Darr also shared in the show ring success at the Indiana State Fair by exhibiting the 2004, 2005 and 2006 Champion Hereford Gilts.

We have sold pigs throughout the United States, but our main outlet is to 4-H’ers throughout Northern Indiana and to other Hereford breeders in the Midwest.  We also sell freezer pork. Contact Leslie at 574-457-6054 if we can assist you in any way.
