ABOUT THE FARM
MEET THE TEAM
Fohn Bendele and his wife Jana started Grassfield farm 25 years ago when they got married.
Fohn and Jana feel very blessed to be able to raise their family on a sustainable farm. They
find great joy in providing the highest quality grass-fed meats and eggs for their likeminded
customers. You can catch them by phone several days a week while they are out making
deliveries in the San Antonio area. As you can see from the photo, they are proud of their
German heritage : )
Krisann is a recent graduate of Texas State University and just made the move to Austin.
She is in charge of our advertising and marketing, as well as the Austin area sales and deliveries.
She and Caroline work together to keep our website up to date with new photos and content.
She's currently starting her own business and managing the Austin area sales.
William is now a sophomore at Texas State University studying Agriculture; consequently, Fohn
has lost his right hand man, who usually had a list a mile long of things to get done on the farm.
Driving tractors and building everything from chicken houses to BBQ pits since he was little,
William has the knowledge and experience it takes to be the official "Fix it and make it work" guy
that we rely on!
Brad performs a variety of tasks that include inventory control, packaging and shipping.
On a weekly basis, he helps move our cattle to new pastures. During his free time, he
enjoys playing tennis!
Caroline (Brad's twin) is the official photographer on the ranch and can be seen several times a
week driving off on her golf cart with all of the dogs and a camera. When she's not cheering on the
sidelines, she is sorting and packing our orders for sale. She's always providing Krisann with new
photos to work with, too!
Junior has been helping us since 2000, and everyone agrees we couldn't do it all without his help.
Taking care of the laying hens is one of his most time consuming tasks. Other things requiring his
careful attention are checking on the piglets, farm construction, and keeping the barn organized and
well stocked. Our farm dogs LOVE Junior and wait every morning for him to serve breakfast. He's known
to share an egg or two!
Our four rescue dogs, Ollie, Kit, Toby, and Sam, work hard protecting and patrolling the pastures from
any predators. Our livestock is so thankful for such a devoted team!
