Welcome to Pack River Farm
Our favorite quote is:
“Know your farmer better than your doctor”
We believe that all food has healing properties from apples to zucchinis.
It is important to us that all food is grown with respect for our planet, we achieve this by enriching and remineralizing the soil to get higher quality produce and healthier soil. We follow restorative practices of the land, animals, and plants, by rotating the animals on pastures to enrich the soil making the pasture more nutrient dense for foraging. By using all of these practices we believe that this creates a higher quality of meat, eggs, and produce.
We strongly believe that absolutely no chemicals, synthetic fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, or vaccines should go into our animals, produce, or soil.Animals are to be cared for, respected, and treated humanely, that’s why our girls (our chickens) are pasture raised, fed the best grain we can afford, non-GMO, no corn or soy.
Chickens are not vegetarians they are omnivores they love milk, bugs, worms, even a mouse from time to time. Our girls get to be chickens, out in the sunshine being with their flock, feet in the dirt scratching for bugs.
The farm may not be certified organic, however we are believers in going beyond the standard of what is called organic and that’s getting back to the way our great grandparents grew food and raised animals. If done correctly the animals keep the soil healthy and the produce that grows from that soil helps keep us healthy.
It is our desire to give our community an opportunity to connect with a local farmer. To learn about sustainability and know where your food is coming from, how it is raised and why animals need to be respected and cared for responsibly. As well as why it is so important for your fruits and vegetables to be grown organically.
We would love to meet you, give you a tour of the farm. Let us know what we can do to help you!
