First Generation Farmers

After living and working in Latin America for ten years as diplomats, we were unexpectedly medically evacuated home in 2014 to help one of our children. With the farm previously purchased in anticipation of our future retirement we came home for recuperation. The farming adventure began with heritage breeds of American Milking Devon and Red Devon cows and Gloucestershire Old Spot pigs.

Our overseas eating experiences were very different from those in the US with some resultant healthy life changing habits occurring. Frozen foods were almost nonexistent and canned food options were not much better.  The ‘norm’ being fresh vegetables and meats. The impact of these limited food options is obvious – locals do not suffer from the same obesity rates as Americans.  The American obesity epidemic has not hit Latin America.

Making a difference in America with our farm.

We chose heritage breed livestock, animals never selected for production in Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). Our heritage breed animals thrive in their natural environment, producing flavorful and nutrient dense meats –  food the way Mother Nature intended.

We are excited to be your farmer, growing and sharing healthy choices for you.

Take a minute to look through our website and see for yourself what we are all about.

How to Slow Cook a Ham Roast

Cooking a ham roast has been on my to-do list since I picked them up from the processor last month.  I usually brine and then slow cook ham roasts in the oven, but I wanted to try something different with this one.  Something that could be whipped up really fast and...

What do you know about cows?

Cows are interesting creatures.  Not quite like the horses I so loved growing up, but fun never-the-less. My mom was surprised when I purchased cows, as she remembers me having a distinct dislike of them.  It was probably less of a dislike and more that they simply...
