Our journey towards healthy soils, water, and food - Over 130 years in the making!
Farming is our heritage
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.
