Our story began in 2012 when we moved from Florida to Michigan to help Grandpa Thacker with his farm. In 2013, we bought the farm and began experimenting with regenerative agriculture by adding a variety of livestock and converting the conventional corn and soy fields to pasture and hay. Today cows, pigs, chickens, goats and bees get to enjoy the 60-acre oasis. No-spray vegetables are produced seasonally and maple trees in the forest provide delicious maple syrup. With each changing season, lessons are learned, the soil is improved, and wholesome food is produced. We hope you will join us on our journey to build a financially independent, self-sustaining homestead.

Our Mission

The Three Pillars, our mission statement:

Human health: Physical, mental, and spiritual health can be improved with Real Food. We select mostly heirloom and non-hybrid varieties that have not lost their flavor or
nutritional qualities to selective breeding. Our livestock are kept on pasture and fed
minimally processed Organic feeds. We never use synthetic substances, even those
which are allowed by Organic standards. The result is Real Food that helps your
body to maintain and heal itself as nature intended.

Environmental quality:  Symptoms of environmental degradation are becoming difficult to ignore.  Regenerative agriculture is the method of producing food while simultaneously
improving the soil and environment on the farm. This is our goal, to have a net-
positive impact on the environment with every item we produce. Consumers can
have a positive impact on the environment simply by choosing local, regenerative
food products.

Animal welfare: We place an emphasis on giving our animals a natural diet, ample space, and a respectful end. The goats are probably the most spoiled because they get to take
walks around the whole property to browse on a wide variety of natural vegetation.
The cows graze on pasture and are fed hay through the winter. The poultry and
pigs also forage around the property and they are fed nutrient-dense Organic food
waste, keeping it out of a landfill. We feel that livestock production can be ethical
and environmentally friendly if care is taken and attention is paid to what they eat
and how they are treated.
