Bryant Family Farms LLC is a pastured poultry operation located 5 miles east of Mineral Point in Wisconsin’s driftless region. The farm was started in 2012 by Nico when Nico was working for a school district in the northern suburbs of Chicago. In 2016 Nico was able to purchase property after many years of renting ground. In 2017 Nico met Melanie and soon after in 2019 they wed and Melanie has been helping side by side with all the businesses needs. Both Nico and Mel are military veterans and the farms products are registered under the Homegrown by Heroes label program through The Farmer Veteran Coalition.
