We are committed to humanely raising our livestock. What does this mean, besides a claim on a label? Our animals live their entire lives on pasture, uninhibited to express their natural behaviors. Their days are spent in small groups, rooting and grazing.
We have spent much time and consideration planning for their last day as well. We operate our own USDA inspected slaughter and processing facility on our farm. With much research, hard work, and design help from Dr. Temple Grandin, we built this facility so that our commitment to ethical treatment is never compromised.
We are committed to the ethical treatment of our animals. From birth to slaughter we have researched and implemented strategies that limit stress, enhance natural behaviors, and ensure our animals can thrive in their environment.
We hire locally, with most of our workforce living within a 10 mile radius of the farm. The producer program provides new market opportunities for surrounding farms, and brings more land into regenerative production practices. Our events bring people to Como from all over the country to celebrate the rich food and music culture of our Mississippi hill country community.
We practice regenerative agriculture, by building biodiversity and nutrient rich soils. Focusing on the soil as the substrate of all life on the farm creates the framework for our farming decisions.
