Below we have some general information about how we raise our animals, the relationships we are cultivating, and the direction we are moving:
Healthy soil is key
Our move to a new farmstead means we are focused as much on the soil and land that our animals will live on, as the animals themselves. We are working on a holistic soil nutrient plan. Healthy soil will produce healthy forage and grain-crops, which will be the food our animals eat and will be the meat we provide to you.
We are also working to integrate the animals into systems where they play the role of fertilizers, cultivators, aerators, pest-control, and any other job they are willing to sign up for. As we build up our new farmstead we are looking to use silvopasture and alley cropping systems to enhance this. Since 2011 we have planted over 6000 trees of a variety of types – including fruit and nut trees to provide food for us and the animals.
You are an investor
You are investing in us and our way of farming; investing in yourself in terms of the food you eat; investing in the relationships and businesses that are part of building a community-based food system; and investing in the ecosystems that support us all.
Support other food-preneurs
We use small, local abattoirs for processing our animals and are partnering with local entrepreneurs to market our products. We are open to collaborate and cooperate with other farmers.
