About Our Farm

Our Farm

locust grove pastures - grass fed beefOur Farm has been operating since the late 1700’s and was originally owned by General Nelson a founding Father of the USA. Our Farm has been passed from several generations of Quakers and its prized rich soil has been harvesting local crops for over 300 years. The Farm was divided a few years back and we had a passion to preserve the history behind this historic farm and restore the wonderful farmhouse that has been in the same family for many generations.

The soil has been properly farmed and as a result produces beautiful pastures. We decided that this spot was the perfect place for a grass fed meat farm due to the rich soil that would be a great base to develop pasture for our cows as well as pigs. 

Your Food. Our Mission.

Our mission is to glorify God by helping busy, informed consumers gain access to safe and ethical foods you can eat with confidence. Our goal is to provide the peace of mind that comes from having a direct relationship with a farmer you can know and trust.
 

Our Radical Transformation

12 years ago we operated a conventional farm using industrial agricultural practices. However, as a result of a family health crisis, we became convicted of our need to make radical changes in our farming practices and philosophies.

In 2008 after the financial crises we embarked on a radical journey to build a rural life and moved to Virginia. We began with only 3 acres and implemented many different organic based sustainable techniques and learned to farm out land. We purchased a livestock breed of dogs knowing that we would eventually use them for our meat based pasture farm. We never would have thought that we would love our dogs so much as well as our farming on our land. Our pasture-based farm based on transparency with an open door to the public. In 2019 we moved to central Virginia to expand on our farming and fulfill our dream of providing a pasture raised meats and vegetables to those who cherish wholesome real foods raised with no pesticides or antibiotics. Just real true meat the way our creator intended, we specialize in grass fed beef.
