Tools of the Trade

Using the following species of animals and our own deliberate actions, we ethically and conscientiously manage our farm, build a sustainable business for our family, and most importantly to you, produce delicious, safe, all-natural meats.

Cattle are our first important tool, clipping our fields. This clipping keeps the grass young and quickly growing, the manure and soil aeration provided by the cattle feed the roots with nutrients and open pathways for beneficial soil microbes. Then comes the most important step, the cattle move on, sometimes not touching a grazed paddock for over seven months while the grass rests, growing again into a rich, dense and nutritious green salad.

Our birds come behind, feasting where the grazing cattle have exposed seeds, worms, fly larvae and tender shoots which provide a vital supplement to their locally grown and mixed ration. Our egg-layers, meat producing chickens and turkeys sanitize with their beaks and further fertilize with their manure, and just as importantly, they move on letting the field rest, re-grow grasses, and repopulate with insects.

Our three different breeds of pigs are raised in three settings, each with its own roles. There are pigs on pasture with the cattle. They root and forage, in addition to their locally grown feed, further aerating, fertilizing and softening the soil. Otherwise, they are our composters, turning the rich organic material in our winter feed barns so it is ready to be spread on the fields as natural fertilizer. The final setting for some of our pigs is the autumn woodlands where they finish on acorns, hickories, walnuts, and roots, but just as importantly reinvigorate woodlands by reducing undergrowth, disturbing soils and adding organic material to the forest floor.
