It’s an ecosystem. Farming for us is about managing complex systems, with closed loops and full integration to create habitat, enhance soil life and to produce a diverse range of top quality, nutritious and tasty end product! Cattle preparing this field for an organic maize crop that will be seeded straight into this live cover crops. None of this is possible without animals in the system. #lowerland #soiltosoul #ecosystems #simplifycomplexity #rhythm #closedloops #permaculture #systemsapproach #keepmoving #diversity #nature #nutrition #prieska #itsallconnected #mixedfarming #nouboerons #vetcheswinmatches #hoofsnotiron #rootsnotiron #grazeagainstthemachine #compostmachines #manure #covercrops #pollinators #predators #habitat #mobgrazing #pasturedmeat #organic #organicfarming

Well, we finally found a restaurant that does not insist on paying wholesale prices, will work with us on availability and will buy a fresh 1/2 side of Pineywoods Heritage beef instead of select cuts! This is an exciting opportunity for us and it requires some upgrades to our delivery method. We have not delivered fresh cuts before, frozen cuts are easy, just put them in a cooler and add ice or dry ice depending on how far you have to go. Fresh cuts need to be kept at 45 degrees or below at all times. Plus the cuts are delivered not as individual cuts, but bigger primal cuts like loin, chuck and rib, the restaurant butcher their own individual cuts. Our solution is to attach an inverter to the truck battery and fuse it at 250 amps. We will load our 16 cubic ft freezer in the back of the truck, plug it in and run an alarmed freezer thermometer to the cab of the truck, the alarm will sound if temps rise to 37 degrees. The primal cuts will only be in the freezer an hour and a half and won’t have time to freeze. The side of beef is currently dry-aging, we’ll deliver it next week. Good times! #pineywoodscattle #howto #deliverables #truck #businesstravel #upgrades #delivery #dryagedbeef #fooddelivery #chefsofinstagram #grassfedbeef #butcher #sideofbeef #heritagebreeds #deliver #foodiesofinstagram #freshdelivery #freshfood #freshfooddelivery #cheflife #chefsofig #restaurantlife #upgradeyourworld #trucklife #grazeagainstthemachine #northcarolina #beefdelivery

The hallmark of a sustainable business is not to let anything go to waste. Hurricane Flo left a few marks on the office. This old maple was leaning quite a bit after Flo blew through, one more hard gust and it would have toppled. As a sustainable and regenerative farm we will: 1. We’ll chip all the smaller branches and limbs to use as mulch 2. We’ll cut the larger branches and the trunk into manageable sizes, drill holes in them and inoculate them with mycelium to grow shiitake, oyster and reishi mushrooms. 3. We’ll plant a pecan tree and 2 hazel nut bushes in the hole the tree dug for us when it fell. #grazeagainstthemachine #sustainablebusiness #regenerative #sustainability #trees #hurricaneflorence #regenerativeagriculture #regenerativefarming #farmlife #farm365 #chase #chaseyourdreams #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #chicken #chickensofinstagram #paleo #foodie #farmtotable #eatclean #eatlocal #eatrealfood #eathealthy

Getting started on cleaning up the old maple tree. We’ll chip the branches and use it as mulch in the garden and use the logs to grow mushrooms. All the water Flo left behind is making it really humid and with the thermometer reading 93, it’s like working in a bowl of soup out here! #bowlofsoup #hurricaneflorence #grazeagainstthemachine #free #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #chase #chaseyourdreams #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #chicken #chickensofinstagram #paleo #foodie #farmtotable #eatclean #eatlocal #eatrealfood #eathealthy #stihl #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #liveauthentic

With the help of Chef @foodfootage_luke.owens , Sue has been blessed with a signed copy of @chefandthef book #deeprunroots. Sue will be reading it and @pascalbaudar Wildcrafting Brewer under the cover of Flo. . It’ll be a welcome respite from a week of preparing the farm, our animals and ourselves for the storm. Personally, I’m ready to drink beer. . 🐮 #cookyour ❤️out #chefwithheart #theF #theChef #grazeagainstthemachine #hurricaneflorence #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #authorsofinstagram #chaseyourdreams #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #cookbook #bookstagram #foodie #lard #southern #eatlocal #eatrealfood #eathealthy #vivianhoward #farmhousekitchen #beerfest #beer #drinkbeer

I was digging a trench when the roosters started their ‘danger in the sky’ caw. Looked up to see what kind of bird of prey was scouting a meal and instead saw this. Roosters sometimes get it wrong. And sometimes you get mud on your phone. . 🐮 #Pineywoodscattle #grazeagainstthemachine #freerange #farmlife #farm365 #farmersofinstagram #familyfarm #organic #organicfarming #sustainable #sustainablefarming #chickensofinstagram #cattle #foodies #farmtotable #grassfed #eatlocal #farming #wildforaged #grassfedbeef #permaculture #farmhousekitchen #chefslife #cooklikeaboss #farming #liveauthentic #farm365 #flashofdelight #muddy #rainbow

Cattle grazing most of the organic corn stubble and intercropped vetch and trampling the rest to keep soil covered. We are planting organic pumpkins straight into this stubble next month. Cattle (animals) are crucial in organic farming ~ in this instance the integration will stop us from burning or ploughing the excess stubble AND the spin off is manure (fertilizer) and protein. Now we also don't have to burn fossil fuels by spreading manure or by using chemical fertilizers. Quitting meat because you don't like feedlots is like quitting music because you don't like bagpipes. #soil #stubble #soilarmour #keepitcovered #keepmoving #itsallconnected #carbon #grazeagainstthemachine #lowerland #prieska #notillfarming #stripgrazing #mobgrazing #compostmachines #nouboerons #notallfarmsarefeedlots #knowyourfarmer
