This is Scott from @beaver_creek_farms. He’s been a vegetarian for over two years! After some discussions with him about eating organic and non-gmo meat and the ethics and nutrition behind it he decided to take the plunge back into eating meat and to take it one step further.. process his very own chicken! So he came over today and did just that. Always love when people want to learn how it’s done and you gain a much higher respect with the food you eat. Thanks again for coming by Scott!

This here is a growing strong boy who can be most helpful around the farm! 🏃‍♂️ We feed apples at least 6 months out of the year along with barley, gmo-free corn, and peanuts for pig feed. You've heard the saying... "An 🍎 apple a day keeps the doctors away." So why not? The pigs sure do love them! 🍂🍃🍎🍏 #localapples #peanuts #gmofree #wasteproducts #nowaste #weuse #happypigs #rotationalgrazing #forestraisedpork #pastureraisedpork #farrowtofinish #applefinishedpork #yum #farmkids #teachthemyoung #jlgreenfarm

Do you see the really dark green rectangles? These my friends, are where the chicken tractors have been.. the lighter colored stuff is where they have NOT been. An amazing difference!Normally when you rotate chickens through fields you would have a seamless pattern that covers the field. Since moving the chickens has been primarily the #farmhands (AKA our kids) job... well they created their own pattern. 😂 but I’m grateful because it’s a fantastic example of what animals do to the land and how proper management techniques can increase soil, productivity, and nutrient dense food. @polyfacefarm maybe Joel would get a kick out of this! #nutrientsensefood #rotationalgrazing #pasturedchicken #WRpasturedchicken #sustainableag #farming #ranching #wovokaranch #animallandsynergy

Frost arrived. I love my front yard pasture. At a glance I can check on half of my herd. This morning they are tucked into their shelter instead of steadily grazing on fallen leaves. You can see the t-post pasture within the perimeter fence. That allows the dogs access around all pens for guarding their herd without direct access as they mature and learn. It also creates another avenue to graze off their normal pasture. #gettoknowahomesteader #rotationalgrazing #myfrontyardisapasture #bluebarnyard #ilovemygoats #fallhasarrived #quietmornings

Just a walk in the woods with some friends. About once a week, we take our goats through the woods to have them “self-medicate.” Sometimes they attack pine trees for their tannins; sometimes they devour sweet gum and locust seedlings. It’s amazing to see them navigate the forest in their own way: they don’t see trees like we do, they see nutrients and minerals. Resiliency, docility, foraging abilities, and friendliness are what we breed for...if they don’t want to follow us in the woods, they don’t stay on the farm for long. There is no farm chore, if we can even call it a chore, as pleasurable and joy-giving as this! . . . #farmvirginia #familyfarm #nubiangoats #rotationalgrazing #happygoats #goatbreeding #nelsoncounty #walkinginthewoods

#Repost @lydias_flock ( @get_repost ) ・・・ Though the pastures aren't as green as they could be, we keep moving the flock every few days, in addition to feeding orchard grass hay on the pasture and five gallon buckets full of apples and pears twice daily. Photo 6 is of Isolde, the last remaining ewe from our 2010 Icelandic starter flock; photo 7 is of Clover, the first sheep we ever purchased. #pnwfarms #pnwisbest #pnwyarn #pnw #smallfarms #fiberfarming #shepherding #wool #yarn #fiber #sheep #shetlandsheep #icelandicsheep #pastureraised #regenerativeagriculture #carbonfarming #climatebeneficial #singlesourceyarn #localyarn #locallygrown #thisiswomenswork #ethicalfarming #animalwelfare #animalsonpasture #grazing #rotationalgrazing #soilhealth #sustainability #ethicalomnivore

With the cooler weather rolling in, our tour season has officially come to a close. We are very grateful for all of the folks who visited our farm this past year to learn more about where their food comes from. If you've been interested in a farm visit but weren't able to make it happen this year, our virtual farm tour is just for you! It's a video series we created that gives you an opportunity to learn more about what we do on the farm level to produce healthy foods you can feed your family with confidence. [Link in bio]

Visit to the pigs with Mr. Wyatt. He loves ❤ to rub their backs. The pigs are so relaxed with little stress in their world, that they could careless that we are around. 🐷 I've heard the question... "why do you let your kids with your pigs? I've heard horror stories of things that have happened." 🙉 I'm thankful that with the approach we take to farming, allows our children to be involved. The pigs are friendly and it's not dangerous to visit them. Our kids have also been taught to respect them and know what is not a good idea. Such as grabbing a newborn piglet from her mom. 😁 #teachemyoung #building #learning #newgeneration #farmkids #happypigs #lowstress #rotationalgrazing #pastureraisedpork #forestraisedpork #farrowtofinish #jlgreenfarm

Hello Sena! . One of the main characteristics we are breeding for in our #irishdexter herd is a wide muzzle. Westin A Price argued in the 1920s/30s that human health can be topically established by looking at the face’s structure. After some research, we’ve found that cattle are no different! Wide faces/muzzles provide room to accommodate well-placed teeth and well structured jaws/teeth provide for optimal mowing/digestion of mowed material. The healthiest animals in our herd exhibit these characteristics, Sena included. How cool is that!? . . . #farmvirginia #familyfarm #irishdexters #rotationalgrazing #westinaprice #happycows #grassfedbeef #managementintensivegrazing #cattle #grassfed

What remains of our Icelandic flock after slaughtering a few for ourselves and taking 4 to the butcher. The tiny one hiding in the back left will also be seeing our freezer soon. We'll be done milking the fresians in the next week or so and then they'll be going in with these guys. We've kept them separate until now because the fresians cycle earlier than the Icelandics and we want to avoid any winter babies. #icelandicsheep #appalachia #blueridgemountains #sheep #boonenc #boone #tradetennessee #appalachianmountains #rotationalgrazing #intensivegrazing

Fading evening light with ChiChi; sweet Jolene is already nodding out and I get the chance to quietly observe. ChiChi is finally gaining weight. Thankfully she's of a robust nature and managed to survive my learning curve and I can only take note of what I did wrong and be grateful I remedied the situation ~ ChiChi was taking 15 to 20 lbs of alfalfa and pouring it into the bucket instead of using it for her own health. This is called milking off her back (I think don't quote me as I spend many an hour second guessing myself) ...my very stripped down take-away is that too much alfalfa is a bad thing, and "grass genetics" don't mean shit if you're grazing a marginally improved farm and not making allowances for it. + So currently ~ 1300lb cow grazes a fresh space of 150ft×150ft every day, plus 25lbs-35lbs of nice grass hay, plus 10lbs leafy alfalfa hay, plus 8lbs grain gives approximately 6 gallons of milk which is unequally divided between a huYOOge heifer calf and a milkmaid. I have no clue if this is efficient or an enormous waste of cash but I can say that we are terrible milk snobs now and her manure is the stuff of legends. #lifeofamilkmaid #housecow #mygirlChiChi #MilkingShorthorn #slowfood #rawmilk #eatingthegoodlife

The mobile chicken coop has been primed and is getting a fresh coat of paint to winterize it. This is the coop that started it all 💛... the matriarch of our mobile coop fleet, the gateway drug that lead to life altering choices in which we are forever grateful for... we are farmers, land lovers and agrarians with roots that run deep and who have a passion for real food grown with love and intention and a desire to go sing it on the mountain and share all that we do with the community that surrounds us. This ole’ chicken coop means so much to us...it was the first step; so long ago, that allowed us to live authentically. Happy #humpday everyone 💛 . . . #mobilechickencoop #chickencoop #chicken #pasturedeggs #rainboweggs #eggs #farmfamily #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #modernfarm #rotationalgrazing #freerangechickens #happyhens #happychickens

1 for you and 1 for me! Who's ready to try a pack of 12 grass fed beef sticks? It's free shipping and such an easy protien snack. Great for on the go with no mess! 😋 I get so tired of snacks that are full of carbs and sugar. It's all you see when you walk into a convenient store. So instead, I put these in my car so that when we are desperate for something to stop the meltdowns we pull these out and enjoy a protein snack. So helpful! 👍 #onthego #protiensnack #keto #brainfood #lowcarb #glutenfree #nutfree #freeshipping #grassfedbeef #rotationalgrazing #seeandtastethedifference #jlgreenfarm

Pig mantra: “Be the mud. Become one with the mud.” . 😂🐷😂🐷 . This was after only a week and a half in this paddock and look at the area they rooted up and made a big ole wallow in! 😳 . Hence moving them faster if you don’t want this to happen... in this area it’s fine and we seeded it all after they moved on, but needless to say, we wouldn’t want this in the pasture! . . . . . . #mud #pigsinmud #pigswillbepigs #wallow #mudwallow #pigwallow #stillhot #naptime #piglife #rotationalgrazing #happypigs #forestraisedpork #pasturedpork #berkshirepigs #heritagebreeds #forest #woods #farming #farmlife #farrowtofinish #farmanimals #piggy #pig #farmpigs #sustainablefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainableagriculture #iamcountryside #youngfarmers #iamamodernfarmer

Permaculture is concerned with stacking. This morning we witnessed a goat “stacked” on a cow and a chicken on a goat (not at once). Wow...if only we had gotten a picture... . We are always pushing for diversity. The goats provide our bull friendship during his “off months,” the bull provides our goats a dead end host for parasites, the goats eat what the bull doesn’t and vice versa, and the chickens consume the rest, including fly and worm larva. The turkeys is AWOL...he left his flock. . . . #farmvirginia #familyfarm #diverse #permaculture #permaculturesolutions #rotationalgrazing #irishdexters #happyanimals #goats #grassfedgoats #welovegoats
