Family to Family Farm
What we envision is to produce the highest quality poultry possible with sustainable methods that are humane while providing personal service and assistance to those who ask.
The confusion with sustainable agriculture is that it is more a philosophy or way of life than a strict set of rules, and farmers can interpret the meaning differently.
What is Sustainability?
When a process is sustainable, it can be repeated and maintained indefinitely. Sustainable food production can be maintained indefinitely because sustainable farmers do not take more resources to produce food than they give back. A reliance on renewable resources - as well as on symbiotic relationships with nature and the surrounding community - means that these farms do not damage the environment, are humane for workers and animals, attempt to encourage a fair wage to the farmer, and support and enhance rural life. Because sustainable farmers see nature as an ally rather than an obstacle, they are able to produce more wholesome food while using less non renewable fossil fuels (thus lessening the impact on the overall environment), without using any chemical industry produced synthetic pesticides, artificial hormones, steroids or antibiotics.
The vast majority of locally based sustainable farms are run by family farmers who are hardworking, honest and sincere people. They work all hours of the day and night as needed to bring you the freshest, tastiest, best quality food available. It is now becoming increasingly possible that you can begin to reconnect with your food and the actual people providing it.
Each step you take on your own benefits both you and your family, helps preserve and protect our natural earth and a safe food supply for future generations. This is at least one choice we can make that will make the world a better place for all of us now and into the future!
Prince Charles recently stated -- "Science has tried to assume a monopoly - or rather, a tyranny - over our understanding of the world around us. We are only now beginning to understand the disastrous results of this outlook".
