The main principles of Regenerative Agriculture are:
Boosting Soil Wellness,
Increasing Water Permeation & Retention,
Improving Farm Resilience,
and Reducing Dependence on Chemical Inputs
At Beef & Greens Farm, we are working to improve different areas of land, both overworked, and underworked. We graze our beef herd in the summer using rotational grazing and mob-stocking (leaving the animals on a smaller piece of pasture for a short period of time, then moving on quickly). We then follow the cows with the chickens, who work through the manure looking for grubs, and spread the fertilizer around without using a tractor. In the winter, we unroll the hay bales and graze the cattle out in the pasture.
This is working very well on the land that had been neglected. The cows are returning nutrients and organic matter (manure and leftover hay) to the soil, we don't need to use machinery, and the land is already showing higher drought resilience, plant diversity, and thriving earthworms and frogs. Oh, and healthy cows too, without needing chemical dewormers, steroids, or antibiotics. Healthy soil makes healthy animals, and healthy food for you!
All of our beef is naturally raised, grass-fed and finished, and humanely handled in our small herd. We can give individual attention to each animal, making sure that all of their needs are met and that they have clean water, dry bedding, and plenty of grass or hay to eat. And as we get better at doing what we do, we can continue bringing our best to you!
