We believe that producers of agricultural products have both social and ecological responsibilities in maintaining rural quality of life and ensuring the health of the environment.
Our animals are allowed to express their natural and instinctual behavior. We never raise animals in confinement barns or Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). Our Pigs have natural straw and cornstalk bedding and have outdoor access to sun, mud, grass and clean air.
Bedded pigs with access to outdoors and an aerobic manure management systems produce greatly reduced smells and allow for the humane treatment of animals. There are no ill effects on children’s health or other negative health impacts, no volatile organic compounds and no manure spills with this type of management system.
Supporting the Local Economy & Family Farms
Positive Ecological Impacts
Our straw and cornstalk bedding is aerobically composted and spread on local certified organic agricultural fields as part of a biologically intensive soil building protocol that supplies valuable minerals and enhances soil microbiological diversity and health.

"Pig comfort is increased with well-managed bedding packs. Bedding allows pigs to alter the temperature they experience. Areas within a bedding pack will begin to compact and can become very warm, a great advantage in the winter. Alternatively, other spots remain cooler and spreading out into these areas allows pigs to cool themselves. Bedding provides a combination of potential benefits to sows and growing pigs such as nutrition, thermal regulation, physical comfort and environmental enrichment."

"Returning to traditional, independent livestock production also won’t occur overnight, but it has already begun. We CAN restore the integrity of animal agriculture over time if we commit to working together to change how our food is produced."
