“Everyone is encouraged to investigate the source of their food and to buy locally. Be an educated consumer and know that there IS a difference on how your food is raised. It does affect the nutritional value (and your health) more than you know!”

Our family has been farming for over 40 years. We feel honored to provide quality food for so many families in the St Louis area, knowing that all our long, hard days are making a difference for people’s health and wellness.

All our animals are rotated daily (pigs are moved weekly) and our poultry and pigs receive a non-gmo feed ration. Cows are grass fed and finished, never fed any grain.

We are dedicated to providing wholesome nutritious pasture-raised foods to families in the St. Louis metropolitan area. We use no chemicals, growth hormones, antibiotics, pesticides or herbicides on any of the land or livestock. By rotating our chickens, turkeys, pigs and cows through a fresh buffet of pasture grasses, the land provides wholesome nutrients to the animals while the animals return nutrients back to the soil.
