Jim and Audra Chamberlin own and operate Island Lake Farm, a 107 acre diversified farm and forestry operation where    they raise vegetables, livestock, fruit and mushrooms.  The farm is located on a natural environment lake in Deerwood, MN where Audra predominantly cares for the animals and homestead, while Jim is an expert in soil health, erosion control and woodland management.  Jim & Audra have influenced and shared their love of conservation and the outdoors with their 9 children, 11 grandchildren and others in the community.   The portion of the farm that lies on a designated wild rice lake is nearing completion of an 82-acre perpetual conservation easement.  The Chamberlin's are exceptional stewards of the land, active in local and regional organizations and have careers that improve conservation efforts in our area.
