Our journey towards healthy soils, water, and food - Over 130 years in the making!

Farming is our heritage

Our goal is to create resilient soils and animals while producing high-quality pasture raised meats from heritage breeds in a way that rejuvenates the land and communities. We want to be part of the solution that provides clean water and air while letting animals live in a natural environment and gives people access to beautiful fiber and healthy, great-tasting food.

We started our farming journey in 2012. We had both grown up in the country and after we got married we spent a few years abroad to get the wanderlust out so we would be ready to settle down.  Farming had always been a dream for Jordan, and luckily Natasha’s family had farmland that hadn’t been used by her family for two generations.

As much as farming was the dream, we knew that we wanted to be a different kind of farm. We had seen small farms across the countryside sell out and consolidate to the detriment of small towns and wanted to be part of reversing that. We also saw that water and soil quality issues were having a negative impact on the environment.

The answer was grazing. We started out with eight head of cattle, four sheep, and land without power, water, driveway, fence, or buildings.  We built everything from scratch. It hasn’t been easy, but we are proud to be able to provide you with wholesome food and luscious fiber.

Let’s Talk About the Price of Our Pasture-Raised Meats

I have the luxury of interacting with a lot of our customers, something larger companies don’t/can’t do.  Over the years I have heard a wide array of comments about the price of our products, everything from “that’s way too expensive” to “wow, that’s cheap.”  Price is...
