Welcome to Crooked Beak Acres.  We are a Veteran owned farm specializing in locally grown produce.  Our farm is partially operated with work horses, a practice not found in many places.  We use them as much as possible, but due to the time factor it is necessary to pull out... what my husband calls... real horsepower.  He loves his tractors and I really do not mind. 

Right now we grow commercially, mainly different types of peppers.  we also grow annual flowers to help attract bees and other pollinators.  A CSA is in the makings and will be offered soon.  


Tomatoes, peppers, corn, pumpkins, okra, onions, squash, watermelons and lamb.  Farm fresh vegetables, alfalfa hay and mixed grass hay.

We re low-input sustainable farmers incorporating many of the tenants of organic farming in our practices.

All lamb cuts are processed locally at USDA inspected facilities, aged to perfection, and then vacuum-sealed and frozen to insure quality and freshness. Lamb can be purchased at the Shelby County Farmers' Market Saturdays 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (seasonally) or at the farm by appointment. Registered Katahdin hair sheep-breeding stock.

The Gajdziks planted over 3,000 apple and peach trees in early 2010 with the desire to sell quality, local produce to their surrounding communities. The orchard currently has 17 varieties of peaches and 16 of apples so everyone can find their favorites.
Apples will be harvested late June until October and peaches will be available July until August. There are also a variety of berries and fresh vegetables available throughout the season.

Our boys and girls are raised as naturally as we see humanely fit. The sheep are rotated through their open pastures on a monthly basis to assist in the prevention of internal parasites and foot rot. This rotation also provides for variety and lack of boredom to the sheep. Each pasture has shelter to assist in protection from the weather. 

We vaccinate our lambs when born for CDT (Tetanus). We worm as needed, but not just because the calendar says so. We do not feed antibiotics or growth hormones. Antibiotics may be used if it is medically necessary as we do not want any of our flock to suffer. We do not dock tails The short tails are natural... they are Certified Bob-Tails. We provide a free choice mineral buffet for the flock to choose what their body needs. 

The Royal White is a superior meat sheep and considered to be a true hair sheep. The sheep have been developed for easy care and high performance. They produce a high quality lamb meat and superior garment quality leather. 


Breed, raise and train thoroughbred horses; horse lessons; therapy; education; events; layups and boarding.  Bees and honey.
