The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.
— Wendell Berry

OUR VISION

We believe in productive, ecologically-minded agriculture systems that nourish the land and communities for current and future generations.  We strive to produce high quality, nutritious food raised in a sustainable fashion. Care for the land - the soil, water, plants, wildlife, livestock, and people - is our number one priority.  Our farming techniques are always evolving in an effort to create a long-term, sustainable operation.  Six guiding principals help us work towards our vision:

  1. Quality - We believe that food in its purest state is the most flavorful and nutritious available.
  2. Sustainability - We work to keep this land productive, profitable, and healthy.
  3. Transparency - Anyone is welcome to visit the farm. 
  4. Community - Relationships is what it's all about.
  5. Stewardship - It is our responsibility to care for this land and the animals that inhabit it.
  6. Ecological function - Every aspect of this land is interconnected and functions as a system. As producers we strive to help, not hinder, this process.
