We began growing for for ourselves, friends, and family in 2009. Constant news stories or contaminated food and an obesity epidemic drove us to look for an alternative to mass produced commodity food.
Nature created a cycle of life, death, decomposition, and rebirth. Death and decompostion of one plant or animal feeds other plants and animals in a never ending cycle. We utilize this process to build healthy productive soil which produces healthy nutrient rich food for cows, chickens, plants, bees and people. Plants and grasses receive WHOLE nutirents and not individual components that scientists assumed to be the most important.
Our animals, soil, and crops are never touched by synthetic chemicals. This means no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides, or insecticides in the fields. No hormones, antibiotics, or steroids for the animals. This means healthy bees fertilizing non poisoned plants. Chickens scratching for bugs and worms. Cows grazing on safe grass and native plants the way nature intended them to eat.
The soil is where much of the Nature's cycle takes place. Healthy soil is populated by billions of beneficial microorganisms that break down organic matter (both plant and animal) and turn it into nutrients that feed new and growing plants. Through natural feeding, the plants get what they need to grow as they should and build their natural defenses to insects and disease. Synthetic fetilizers and pesticides destroy the beneficial environment, which can lead to sterile soil and build up of harmful, mutant insects and microorganisms.
