Regenerative Based Livestock Farm located in Longmont, Colorado

This allows us to offer healthy, delicious, and sustainable pasture-raised chicken and duck eggs, pastured pork, and hopefully many more products in the future to our local community here in Boulder County.

We manage our 30 acres of land in Longmont through regenerative based rotational grazing of our chickens and pigs. Our rotational method heals the land by adding nutrients to the pasture and allowing the grass time to rest in between grazing cycles. This means our pasture will get healthier and healthier each year, as opposed to degrading slowly as so much Colorado agriculture land does in our arid environment.
We are committed to providing the highest quality of living standards for our animals. The humane treatment of all the animals on our farmstead is one of the cornerstones of our philosophy. This includes – but is not limited to – safe housing, constant access to the outdoors, high quality feed and treats, and clean water. Happier and healthier animals mean a healthier and tastier product for our customers.
What is regenerative agriculture on our farm?
Regenerative agriculture is working with the land as opposed to simply working on it. Much farmland has been degraded over decades of taking nutrients away (as produce, meat, etc.) without feeding and rebuilding the microbiome in the soil at the end of a season. We work to heal our land and return nutrients to the earth. Adding manure, compost, and other nutrients helps grow healthier grass which in turn will pull carbon out of the air and sequester it in the soil. On our farm, we focus on livestock. With the harsh winds we get and the little water we have to manage the land, we feel it’s best to keep a root base in the ground on as much of our land as possible. Therefore, we raise animals that we can rotationally graze through our pasture, focusing on never overgrazing any one area. Also, our backyard garden uses permaculture principles to grow a mixture of annual and perennial food crops. We do this in a no-till system so we aren’t unnecessarily releasing carbon back into the atmosphere by turning our soil each year. As we learn more from experience, we’ll continue to add new systems to the farm, but the focus will always be to leave the soil better than it was when we started.
