OUR METHODS

REGENERATIVE FARMING IN PRACTICE

We utilize sustainable and regenerative farming practices, including rotationally grazing our animals on pasture as much as possible. This makes for happier and healthier animals while proactively mitigating illness and disease within the farm. It also simultaneously works to increase the vitality of our land as we return as much ‘energy’ (i.e., nutrients) to the soil and flora as we take, thus preserving soil health, protecting water-sources, fostering the success of native flora, and increasing the carbon sequestration ability of our property.

RESPECTFUL ANIMAL TREATMENT

We maintain small, intimate herds / flocks which are treated humanely and ethically and raised with consideration given to their natural tendencies and inherent needs (i.e, pigs root, chickens scratch, lambs graze). All animals have access to fresh water, clean air, space to move, sunlight, and are provided with a diet in alignment with their natural digestive systems, inclusive of appropriate vitamins and minerals (where applicable).

We also interact with our animals at least twice a day – every day. This means that our animals are familiar with human interaction and feel less stress when we need to move or handle them. It also enables us to quickly pick up on any changes in behaviour that could signal health issues.

MINIMAL INTERVENTIONS

While we do not give routine antibiotics, and never use growth hormones, if an animal is sick or injured, appropriate care is provided.

PRIORITIZATION OF FOOD QUALITY & SAFETY

Finally, as the quality and safety of the foods we produce is of paramount importance, we are directly and intimately involved in the handling of our animals at every stage of production, including butchering as we personally transport our animals to our local, provincially inspected and licensed abattoirs.

WHAT WE OFFER
