Our Principles

Staying true to our mission





<
  

 

Faithful Stewardship

As a farm of faith, we desire to be found faithful in honoring our Creator's intended design. 

Principle into action:

  • Caring for our animals the way we believe God intended; living outdoors and expressing their instinctive behaviors.
  • Building regenerative landscapes that sequester more carbon, absorb more clean water and photosensitize more sunlight.
  • Farming practices that provide a positive social and economic impact on our neighbors, communities, and region.

 

Humane Harvesting

While mass-scale slaughterhouses build security fences to keep people out - we partner with transparent family-owned abattoirs who maintain an open door policy to the public.

Principle into action:

  • Our animals are kept calm by transporting in small batches with less miles to harvest.
  • Before harvest, animals are kept comfortable with provisions for water and space to rest.†
  • Harvest methods must provide immediate unconsciousness preventing undue pain or panic.
  • The use of machinery or electric shockers to forcefully move animals is strictly prohibited.

† For fowl, feed must be limited before harvest to prevent contamination from undigested food.

 

Open Door Policy

While industrial agriculture passes laws to keep people and cameras out, we're doing the exact opposite. 

Principle into action:

  • We extend an open-door policy to the public to visit every corner of our farm. Learn more >
  • We host behind the scenes summer wagon tours (cameras and questions welcomed!) Learn more >
  • We host a public online farm tour where you can ask any question and we respond personally. Learn more >

 

No Labeling Tricks

It's our desire to earn long-term trust by being up-front and honest about our claims. 

Principle into action:

  • While 90% of "grass-fed beef" sold at retail in the USA is from cheap imported sources, we choose to stick with the real homegrown stuff.
  • While the U.S.D.A. allows the big guys to feed grain by-products and still be legally labeled as "100% grass-fed" - we've steered clear of this funny business.
  • While industrialized "pastured eggs" flood the supermarkets, we've remained true to hens that actually live and rotate on pasture, not in confinement style barns. Learn more >

 

Shared Success

We're not about trade secrets or keeping success to ourselves - we desire to see regenerative farms thriving everywhere!

Principle into action:

  • We're committed to scaling a mission-driven farm that exemplifies a viable proof of concept for other farms to follow. Learn more >
  • We create shared opportunities with a select group of family farms that help us provide regenerative foods to more consumers. Learn more >
  • We provide support and mentorship to 250 family farms in the US, CA & AU who are replicating our models.
