Our farm has been in our family for more than 5 generations! The original homestead was first purchased by Charlie Israel and has been in our family ever since. Today, all aspects of the farm are owned and operated by three generations of Israel’s; Carl and Carolyn, Jamie and Anna, Brett and Riley, and Luke. Our Home - Our Farm!
As farmers, we have a duty to leave the environment in better shape for the next generation
As Farmers, we have an obligation to be good stewards. The success of our family farm is that we always want to leave it in better shape for the next generation. Organic agriculture improves the sustainability of our system. By reducing our synthetic off farm inputs, we are able to work with nature as opposed to asserting dominion over it. As a result, we are able to produce highly nutritious feed for our pigs which in turn creates exceptional quality pork for your family. In saying this, organic agriculture isn’t easy and its not for everyone. Supporting organic producers ensures that family farms, like ours, are able to provide high quality sustainable food for generations to come.
As part of our Farm’s commitment to sustainable agriculture, all our land is Certified Organic.
As part of our Farm’s commitment to sustainable agriculture, all of our land is Certified Organic. We have eliminated the use of all GMO’s, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, insecticides and synthetic fertilizers not because it is easy, but because we believe it is the right thing to do. Instead of relying on chemicals, we use tools like cover crops, crop rotation and our own organic hog manure to improve the health of our soil ecology. We depend on the diversity of our crop rotation to provide high yielding and nutritious grains which make excellent feed for our pigs. Feed the soil, feed the crop, feed the pigs.
