We purchased our farmland in 2017 with the dream of building a family farm.
Before then the fields had been used mainly for growing and harvesting hay and grains to feed livestock over the winter.
The soil was extremely depleted and compacted from years of being driven on by heavy equipment, ploughed under, and sprayed with chemical fertilizers.
Even though we both grew up during a time when these conventional farming methods were the be-all end-all of agriculture, we both felt like there was a better way to farm...
and doing it this way was not natural or sustainable.
Enter “Regenerative Agriculture”- a way of farming that works with the environment and promotes healing of the land by taking machinery and chemicals out of the equation.
…you could say we’re “going against the grain!”.
When biodiversity is able to return, so will the health of the soil…in 7-10years that is!
So we took our first baby steps and began weaning our acreage off of chemical fertilizers.
We brought cows onto the fields and pigs into the woods to naturally fertilize the soil.
We've implemented swales and ponds to naturally combat future droughts and planted flowers and trees to attract bees, insects, birds, and pond life.
We will try anything we can think of to attract diversity and build the perfect family farm *literally* from the ground up!
To further cut our carbon footprint we don't own a tractor, a plough, or any of the typical farming equipment needed to grow grains or mono crops to feed our cattle.
So what do we do instead?
We built a cutting edge Fodder System that we use to turn 6 1/2LBS of barley seed into 45LBS of green, nutritious, hydrating micro greens year round!
There are no additives, no medium, and no chemicals used- just plain water.
The animals love it!
And it provides them with a significantly higher rate of digestion, nutrition, vitamins, and immune boosting properties!
They're able to eat the entire thing--roots, stocks, leaves, and sprouted seeds!
So there's no waste at all!
We are proud of the way we farm and proud to provide our customers with an easy way to contribute to a better way of life just by eating our one of a kind, premium meat products!
To give people easy access to premium meat products that were raised with three main things in mind:
