Behind the Scenes: Summer 2023

Jordan does a great job recording a lot of the behind-the-scenes activity that happens on our farm.

As we finish up an extremely dry summer in the Shenandoah Valley, and a 100° heat wave in early September, we're so thankful for the way we steward our land.

One of the practices we use, called managed grazing, means we strategically & continually move our animals to fresh sections of pasture the way herds move in the wild. Because of this, our soils are healthy. They're packed with essential nutrients and beneficial microbes. They hold water.

This is nature's blueprint.

With careful herd and land management, our farm's soil produced live grass for our animals all the way through this bone-dry summer—while most neighbors were feeding hay and busting out silage by late July as their pastures went dormant.

Here's a peek behind the scenes of Summer 2023.
