About our Farm
We are on a mission to improve human health and the health of the planet by changing the way food is grown & raised through regenerative agriculture. We produce low PUFA pasture-raised eggs and grass-fed lamb that is better for you and for the planet.
At our farm, there are no toxic chemicals or added hormones. We are farming as nature intended.
It all started with health.
Our names are Ashley and Sarah - two sisters who have been through a lot of health challenges.
Along our health journey, we realized that the way your food is grown and raised impacts your health.
Industrial agriculture and the current food system focus on maximizing yield with toxic chemicals at the expense of nutrients, human health and soil health.
This system is degrading our soil at unsustainable rates, which will result in the reliance on chemically-dependent lab made food, further disconnecting us from nature and hindering human health.
We decided to pursue regenerative ag as first generation farmers to do our part in fixing the food system and improving human health.
Insert our farm - Angel Acres.
Regenerative agriculture refers to a set of farming practices (including holistic planned grazing, biodynamic farming, permaculture, silvopasture, & diverse cover cropping) with the main goal of improving soil health, which is directly related to human health.
Rather than relying on external inputs (like fertilizers, fungicides, herbicides, etc.) in industrial agriculture, regenerative land management strategies focus on soil biology & work with nature.
In proper functioning soil, plants intake carbon from the atmosphere, convert it into sugars, & then pump some of the sugars through their roots to feed microorganisms that use the carbon to build soil.
These microorganisms have access to water & a wide array of nutrients deeper in the soil, which they send to the plant in exchange for liquid carbon “food” - a beautiful symbiotic relationship which produces more nutrient-dense food.
Regenerative Agriculture results in...
💧Soil that has greater water-holding capacity, making it more resilient to droughts & flooding.
🦟Crops that are more pest resistant.
🌎More carbon cycled into the soil & less in the atmosphere.
💰Less expensive fossil-fuel based inputs to grow food & more $ in the farmer’s pockets (which yes will come at a cost of large agrochemical companies profits, sorry Bayer).
🌱The restoration of ecosystems.
🚰An improved water cycle & cleaner water.
🥭And soil that can grow more nutrient dense food to feed a healthy population.
In addition to producing nutrient-dense food, our goal is to create an educational and experiential hub where people can come visit, stay, and learn about and experience regenerative agriculture. Expanding the reach of regenerative agriculture is crucially important, as our agriculture system is broken. Industrial agriculture focuses on maximizing yield at the expense of nutrients and soil health. This system is degrading our soil at unsustainable rates, which will inevitably result in humans having to eventually rely on lab made food, further hindering human health. To produce more nutrient-dense food (and thus improve human health), our soil needs regenerative agriculture, and we need to #MakeSoilSexyAgain.
