Agricultural Practices for Health, Sustainability, and Ethical Farming

As a family-owned and operated farm, we believe in transparency and education when it comes to agricultural practices. Our regenerative pasture-based farm has an open-door policy, but our mission doesn’t end there.

We want to share what we know about the alternatives to conventional industrial agriculture, empowering consumers to source quality food, understand what labels really mean, and make informed choices.

This collection of articles covers the basics of sustainable agriculture and how farms like ours produce nutrient-dense and ethically-raised foods.

Explore our library below, and join us in our commitment to promoting health, sustainability, and ethical farming.

Sustainable Agriculture Practices

Regenerative Grazing: How Sustainable Livestock Management Restores Ecosystems:: Regenerative grazing is a sustainable farming practice that involves rotating livestock through different pastures to promote soil health, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration. Discover how regenerative grazing can benefit both the environment and the animals.

Nutrient-Rich Soil vs. Nutrient-Depleted Soil: Quality of soil on farmland has a significant impact on animal health, and in turn, the quality of meat you buy. Nutrient-rich soil ensures all organisms are interacting in a way that sustains a thriving ecosystem. Learn more about the benefits of nutrient-rich soil and the negative impact of depleted soil.

What Do Labels Like “Grass-Fed” Really Mean?

What Is Grass-Fed Beef: Looking Beyond the Label: Grass-fed beef refers to cattle raised on a diet of grass and other forage, rather than grain or supplements. Find out why grass-fed beef is considered a healthier and more sustainable option than conventionally raised beef.

Pasture-Raised vs. Grass-Fed: While pasture-raised and grass-fed both indicate a more sustainable and ethical way of raising livestock, they are not the same. Learn about the differences between them and how they impact animals, the environment, and human health.

What Does Pasture-Raised Mean? Pasture-raised is a label that indicates that animals were raised outdoors, in pastures, rather than confined in feedlots or cages. Learn about the benefits of pasture-raised livestock for animal welfare, the environment, and human health.

Grass-Fed vs. Grass-Finished: Grass-fed and grass-finished are terms often used interchangeably, but they have different meanings. Grass-finished refers to cattle that have only eaten grass their entire lives, while grass-fed can also include supplements. Discover the benefits of grass-finished beef and how it differs from other types of beef.

Grass-Fed vs. Grain-Fed: Grain-fed beef is the most common type of beef found in supermarkets, but it comes with ethical and environmental concerns. Compare the benefits and drawbacks of grass-fed and grain-fed beef to make an informed decision about the meat you consume.

Grass-Fed vs. Corn-Fed Beef: Corn-fed beef is a type of grain-fed beef raised on a diet consisting mainly of corn. Learn about the differences between grass-fed and corn-fed beef and their impact on the environment, animal welfare, and human health.

What Is Organic Meat (and Is It Really Better)?: It can feel like a full-time job keeping up with the ever-changing standards, terms, and definitions used to label meat. What is organic meat? Is organic the same as grass-fed? Does it even make a difference?

Animal Welfare and Humane Harvesting

What Is a CAFO? The Costs of Industrial Farming: A CAFO, or Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation, is a large-scale industrial farm that raises a large number of animals in confined spaces. Learn about the environmental and ethical concerns surrounding this method of farming.

Ethically Sourced Meat: Ethically sourced meat comes from animals that have been raised in humane conditions and have had access to pastures and natural diets. Find out about the importance of ethical meat sourcing for animal welfare, the environment, and human health, and how to make informed choices about the meat you consume.
