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.

Tis the Season – Make a Warming Homemade Soup for Dinner

It’s that time of year again when it just feels good to eat a satisfyingly warm bowl of soup. Have you ever tried to eat soup in the summer, when the AC is not running, you know it’s not so pleasant, the entire body gets hot (is that just me?).  In the winter however,...

How to Make Easy Cuban Pulled Pork

When I'm busy, the crockpot is a life saver. It seems that the weeks prior to Christmas are the busiest of the year. There's always somewhere to be, something to buy, people to see and extra activities for the kids. I'm so happy to be in the midst of the week between...
