Stuart Farm

“We raise cattle, hogs, and chicken with sustainable and humane practices. All of our livestock live on pasture and rotate to help maintain the soil’s health.”

“On the farm, the goal is to provide a happy and natural environment for the animals. With lots of sunshine, room to roam, and a natural diet, there is no need to medicate “just in case” with antibiotics. Whether it’s the cows, chickens, or bees, making sure they are happy and have the life they were meant to have is priority. All of the animals are treated with respect, kindness, and love. Chore time is used to observe the health of the animals, ensure their safety, give out pets, scratches, and treats, and to be amused by their never-ending antics.   Caring for the soil is just as important as caring for the animals.  The farm is a mix of pastures, bottomlands, woods, and native grasslands and are managed with the soil’s and animal’s health in mind.”
