Fresh Chicken Days- June 10-June 16

Our Story

We had dreamed of owning this farm ever since we had bought a homestead property nearby.  After thirteen years of raising chickens, vegetables, and boys on their homestead, we got the opportunity to puchase our dream property.  The property had been farmed since the late 1800's.  It had been allowed to reforest and then had been logged to clear the land a few years before our purchase. It did not take long to figure out that the land had been severely damaged.  

In his search for ways to farm a property as damaged as this, Greg stumbled on a video from Gabe Brown about treating the farm as an ecosystem.  This started us on our regenerative journey.  We learned about the importance of grazing practices, managing multiple species, and nutrient management. Animals raised in these ecosystems live happy, healthy lives and provide us with more nutritious food.

  • Our Regenerative Goals

    Treat animals ethically.  Our animals live on pasture in moveable shelters and are rotated to fresh grass often.  Animals are not given sub-therapeutic antibiotics or growth hormones.

    Improve soil ecology.  Increase soil organic matter and restore soil biology to increase water infiltration, increase nutrient transfer, and reduce erosion.

    Improve our watershed.  By letting animals distribute their own waste across the fields, there is not a nutrient run off from application of manure.  We do not apply pesticides or herbicides.  By improving the soil health, erosion into the watershed will be reduced.

    Improve human health.  Pasture raised meats contain more micronutrients, Vitamins A and D, and a higher percentage of Omega 3 fatty acids.

During our journey, we have met many other people who want to eat ethically raised, nutritious, and safe foods.  We are happy to be able to provide food into this community.
