We recently had the pleasure of hosting Tyler Pearson from Heifer USA to record a full-length digital tour of our farm! In the tour, Virginia takes Tyler for a behind-the-scenes view of our home farm, covering topics like hog farrowing, making feed in-house, and more.

Heifer USA is an initiative of Heifer International that focuses on providing training, resources, and education to small-scale farmers in the US. They focus on helping farmers implement regenerative farming practices that are both environmentally friendly and economically viable.

This educational video will be available for all to watch on their YouTube channel, so head over to their YouTube channel and subscribe, linked in bio!

June is National Pollinator Month! Let's give a shout-out to the many small creatures that help bring food to our plates by carrying pollen from one flower to the next. Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds, and bats, play a crucial role in the agricultural ecosystem.⁠
⁠
For farmers like us, pollinators are essential partners. They contribute to the health and productivity of our pastures by aiding in the pollination of various plants that make up a diverse and nutritious forage for our animals. This natural process supports the growth of robust grasses and legumes, which are key to maintaining healthy livestock.⁠
⁠
Pollinators also enhance the biodiversity of the farm, creating a resilient ecosystem that can better withstand pests and diseases. By encouraging a variety of plants, these tiny workers help improve the health and balance of our farming ecosystem.⁠
⁠
Join us in celebrating National Pollinator Month by planting a native pollinator garden of nectar-producing plants! By doing so, you can support the vital work of pollinators, ensuring they continue to thrive and contribute to the biodiversity and health of our planet.⁠

One of the primary reasons we implement planned grazing is to preserve and rejuvenate the soil and pasture agroecosystems. When animals overgraze, they strip too much plant cover, leaving the soil vulnerable to the damaging effects of sun and rain. By rotating our cattle frequently, we ensure they leave enough grass and forage behind to regenerate quickly and establish new roots. Similar to solar panels, these plants power the microbial and fungal communities within the soil ecosystem, enabling the forages to sequester carbon through photosynthesis. This practice not only sustains the agroecosystem but also enhances and develops it further. ⁠
