Sustainable Agriculture is an idea you may have heard kicking around lately. Although it is currently trendy, it is really just a new way of expressing the way our family has farmed for generations. A sustainable system produces food that is healthy, using practices that safeguard the environment, respect workers and promote animal welfare. It rejects the idea that only cheapness per calorie matters.

This is our farm house. It was built by Ben's great grandparents in the 1840's, expanded by his grandfather in the 1920's and restored by Ben and me in 1991.

In 1997, we became the 6th continuous generation to live in this house and raise beef. The Seven Sisters rose in the foreground grew from a 2002 cutting of a plant my great grandmother carried by covered wagon from Oklahoma to Kansas in 1910. We are part of a grass-roots effort to produce wholesome and delicious food using practices that nourish the land. You support this effort when you buy from our farm.
