Giles and Mary Wadle started farming shortly after they married in 1956. They raised cows, pigs, corn, beans, two daughters and one son on 500 acres in rural Knoxville, Iowa.
The family worked hard to preserve the land that Giles and Mary spent their 59 years together nurturing. The eldest daughter’s family of two daughters and one son planted their roots in Pleasantville but spent most days down on the farm learning and growing what was started by Giles and Mary.
The one son returned to the area after raising his one son and daughter in Northern Iowa. While working away from the farm, one son started traveling the nation selling animal nutrition products, meeting and learning from large ranch managers, veterinarians, animal nutrition specialists, and every old soul in between.
After Giles and Mary moved from the farm, the next generation’s one son moved to the acreage to continue the farming tradition. After Giles death in 2016, the two One Sons joined forces to fulfill a dream of owning a cattle operation. Starting with 10 heifers and 1 bull, “One Son’s Farm” was started on 160 acres of the family land.
Today, One Sons Farm has grown to 100 head of Simmental Angus cows, with Spring and Fall calving and breeding from Nichol’s genetics. Using an all-natural feeding program (no antibiotics or added hormones) the farm produces great-tasting, high-quality beef for your family’s table.
