Production Practices: We started farming in 2000 and believe that “natural is better”. We utilize sustainable farming techniques and do not spray produce with herbicides or pesticides. We fertilize with manure from our animals, rototill and hand pull weeds, put up fences to keep out critters, and utilize many more natural techniques to keep produce healthy. Our chickens roam free on all 20 acres and roost in trees at night. Our cows and pigs all roam together in one pasture and are very content. Our animals are grass and grain fed to give just the right amount of marbling and flavor to the meat without being fatty.
