Goals & Ethics

Our Farmer’s Pledge: We do all we can to follow organic and sustainable practices, promote wildlife and habitats, with respect for the Earth, care for our animals and pride in the quality of our produce.

Wild Leeks are encouraged and harvested sustainably on the southern hillsides – 2015

Our vegetables and fruits are organically grown with no fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. Our stock is of unique varieties, old heritage strains and regionally-created varieties, sourced from local nurseries and seed companies – mostly organic, and grown with regenerative soil practices and minimal tilling.

We raise our animals humanely with outdoor access and shelter. Sunshine, fresh air and the ability to satisfy natural behaviors like scratching, rooting or wallowing are imperative.

Our birds – chickens, guinea hens, ducks and geese – are raised on organic grain-based feed and completely fence-free daily ranging for wild forage and insects.

Our registered Tamworth pigs are raised on pasture and woodland beechnut forage with a diet of grains, fresh vegetable and fruit produce (not dairy by-products, corn or bread waste) for true-flavored meat of the best quality.
