Bryant Family Farms, 5179 State Road 39, Mineral Point, WI. 53565

Bryant Family Farms was started in 2012 by Nico Bryant while working in the IT department for a Chicago suburban school district. Seeing what parents were sending their kids to school to eat, he knew he wanted to be able to offer parents and staff a better alternative. After being in business for 12 years now, Nico along with his wife Melanie and staff have been altering what the Pastured Poultry game in Wisconsin is all about. Bryant Family Farms has been one of the premiere Pastured Poultry farms in Wisconsin, producing 8,000-15,000 Chickens, Ducks, Turkeys, Guinea Fowl and Black Meat Chicken yearly for Meat & Eggs. In the past few years, they’ve added Lamb and Mangalitsa Pork to their offerings as well as having an On-Farm Coffee Roastery specializing in Single Source beans from India and Oaxaca Mexico.

Nico will share his experience of starting the farm, developing a successful farm business plan and how to write a successful grant.

*Nico received a 2016 SARE grant to raise Guinea Fowl.
*In 2017 a USDA VAPG Grant, which was applied jointly along with a group to include UW Extension agents and a few other local poultry producers to see if it was feasible to build a Poultry Processing facility in Wisconsin.

*A 2018 Frontera Farmer Foundation grant to assist in building a life cycle building.

*A 2020 Frontera Farmer Foundation grant to assist in building a USDA poultry processing facility.
In 2022 Bryant Family Farms/ Driftless Harvest received a Meat and Poultry Resiliency grant to build and operate a USDA inspected Mobile Poultry processing unit.

Nico and Mel have been able to tap into many NRCS conservation plans that have helped with aspects of conservation around the properties he’s been affiliated with. Currently Nico is in talks with NRCS in an effort to get cost share funding to purchase and install an On-Farm composter to compost the offal and feathers from the harvests on farm.

Some grants require you to modify your outlook of your enterprise. Choosing the right grant for the right situation is key. In our case they have allowed us to research feasibility, build our USDA processing facility, assist with building costs of buildings on the farm. Through grants we have been able to plant fruit trees in an effort to help diversify the future of our farms' ability to serve our customers.
