Meet Amie and Kevin Herrera, Farm Owners.
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.
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.
