Cultivation

With every cultivation of the soil you disturb the home of all the living organisms in the soil.  However, even nature tills soil.  Cattle moving across the land, disturb the soil.  How deeply depends on soil moisture levels.  Worms living in the soil create small tunnels for water to penetrate.  Mice and gophers create larger tunnels.  Large tap rooted plants penetrate deeper.  As much as 8 feet or more!  These tap roots bring up needed minerals from below to help feed the biology providing nutrients in the top.  When the plant dies, these channels are left to allow oxygenation of the soil and water to easily penetrate during rain events.

Protection

But like all things in nature, there must be a balance to create the environment needed to produce the specific crop we are producing.  Potatoes, so they can set fruit in the ground that are covered with dirt, not allowing them to “sunburn”; need deep loose soil.  Cereal grains need a seed bed free of the competition from weeds to flourish and grow.  Here we are trying to minimize tillage as much as possible using companion planting of cover crops that will provide a living root in the ground the entire growing season.  This provides “soil armor” throughout the growing season, protecting against wind, rain, and the heat of the direct sunlight.  Those critters in the ground are the means by which nutrient dense food is created!

Using petro chemical fertilizers and sprays directly affect the life in the soil and the quality of the food raised.  Mineral content in foods have dropped by as much as 50% since the 1950’s.  That is why we use only organic materials to nourish and protect our growing crops.

Treatment

Our animals live outdoors!  We provide shelter when needed from the weather, but they are healthier and happier when we allow our cows to graze and our chickens to hunt and peck.  Check out the pictures of our egg mobile.  A home for our chickens in the grass and clover.  We keep them healthy by providing needed mineral and nutritional supplements.  Organic feed is free of any residual chemicals found in what is now termed “conventional” agriculture.

Harvest

Harvest is much like any modern farm today.  Mechanization where needed to bring you the highest quality food at a sustainable economic price.

Regenerative Farming

 

Soil feeds the Grasses,
Grasses feed the Cows,
Cows feed the Soil

 

This circle mimics Mother Nature. It increases organic content and microbial life. We do this by rotating our cows daily so cows only eat the top of the plant and move on. This allows the grass to regenerate faster, creating more than was taken. Cows get taller, more nutrient dense grass, making them healthier and happier. The rest is trampled and left for the livestock in the soil. This heals the earth!

Our Philosophy

From our Farm to Your Plate

It’s important to know what you’re eating. And it’s even more important to know what you aren’t eating. That’s why all of our food is 100% USDA Organic certified, and verified by ICS (International Certification Services). This means all of our food is pesticide, additive, antibiotics, and chemical free. It also means that our food contains higher amounts of vitamins and minerals, as well as antioxidants.
