FEEDING THE LAND
SO THE LAND FEEDS US
We have partnered with local sheepherders to create a win-win arrangement with Mother Nature that leads to happy animals, healthier soils and waters, carbon sequestering, and a prosperous farm enterprise!
Fundamental to regenerating the land is a perpetual cycle of rotational livestock grazing, cover cropping and soil building. Rotational grazing builds healthy soil, reduces erosion and runoff, and eliminates the need for pesticides, herbicides, and chemical fertilizers, while also saving money on livestock feed.
When we talk about "Pasture Fed Animals"...this is it!
The soil’s fertility increases, as manure and the remnants from supplemental feeding add nitrogen, potassium, phosphorous and trace minerals to the earth. Pigs help the process by tilling the soil themselves.
The animals benefit from access to clean air, feed, and environmental conditions. Additionally, parasites within a species are kept at a low point due to inter-species crossover.
All this results in healthier animals, which leads to healthier grass-fed free-range meat products.
Another winning point: livestock odours are mitigated with the progressive movement of the herd or flock.
From spring through autumn, herds and flocks will be on the paddocks. During the extreme cold season, the animals will reside in shelters with outdoor access, and the land will rest.
Regenerative Agriculture is perhaps best described as
