Pastured Steps Family Farm has defined a set of values that govern the practices on our farm. These values are put in place to promote the wellness of our animals, the quality of the food produced and ecological responsibility of our environment and systems.
Regenerative Agriculture is an approach to farm systems that aims to regenerate topsoil, increase biodiversity, improve water cycles, enhance ecosystems, support bio-sequestration, increase resilience to climate fluctuation, and strengthen the health and vitality of farm soil. Our commitment to continuous improvement of the health of our soil will help to ensure our farm continues to increase in productivity without the harmful practices and inputs required by conventional farming systems.
We employ practices such as Permaculture, Holistic Management, Integrated Farming, and Agroecology all in an effort to continuously improve our soil, biodiversity and animal health.
On Pastured Steps Family Farm we have a passion for animal welfare which speaks to the health, care, and physiology. As Joel Salitin would say, we honor the chickeness of the chicken, pigness of the pig, and cowness of the cow. For example, chickens thrive outdoors when they are free to roam open pastures, forage for grass and insects, take dust baths, and bask in the sun. When animals are treated in a responsible way, they are happy, healthy, and nutritious.
Clean Healthy Foods
We produce foods clean from conventional industrial inputs. Our products are Non-GMO, free of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, and the like. We use only premium quality feeds which meet these standards to ensure that our animals are free of all these potentially dangerous chemicals.
