As farmers and as food buyers, we always like to hear about folks who are making strides to help the ag industry become more in tune with the environment.

We take our roles as stewards of the land very seriously, and we understand firsthand how very important it is to protect our natural resources — not just for our generation and our children, but also for the generations who will follow us.

Check out this post from the U.S. Department of Agriculture about a family who is working to sustainably graze cattle, goats and sheep on their eastern Kentucky farm.

Curious about how we raise livestock on our farms? Let us know. We’ll be happy to share our experiences with you, including how we help keep our animals healthy and produce safe food products while adhering to ethics regarding animal welfare, antibiotics and hormones.
