Out of stock?

Yes, our regular customers know this, but occasionally we are out of certain products, so what are we out of right now? Whole chickens and pork sausage. Sausage always goes fast, but we still have bacon, center-cut pork chops, and Boston butts. As a farmer, I hate to be out of anything in the Farm Store, but it happens and I have to get over it. Our next whole chickens will be available in the Farm Store on November 30. Read More

Temple Grandin

We watched Temple Grandin last night on Amazon Prime (it’s free). I learned about her a couple months ago after my friends Tony and Betsy Brown (Longview Farms) told me they were going to hear her speak along with Joel Salatin at Polyface Farm in Swoope, VA. What an amazing woman. Her autism allows her to see everything in pictures, and the movie does a great job of describing it. There are so many special gifts God gives us inside Read More

Mechanical vs Physical

I do my best thinking during morning chores, and so I wanted to share a thought from this morning: In the mechanical world, there is a human designer and the machine does whatever it is designed to do, but it finds no joy in its work and it never gets tired (my favorite machine is our John Deere tractor with front-end loader). In the physical world, there is also a designer, but He is not human. The big problem in Read More

How is the farm doing?

What started out as a better way to feed our family has turned into a better way to feed our community. Access to local, pasture-raised meats can be an issue for many people, and so we are glad to be able to provide meats that were raised using regenerative practices. We have been doing this for four years now, and we have met so many great people; people whom we would have never met had we not been offering our Read More

Meet the farmer

My name is Jason Pope, and this my wife Karen (photo credit @sixberryfarm). We live on and farm land that has been in my family for four generations, so yes, we have deep roots here. We started farming in the Spring of 2011 with the purchase of our first four cows. Then sometime in early 2014, my pastor’s wife gave me a book title “You Can Farm” by Joel Salatin. I had never heard of Joel Salatin, but once I Read More

We believe

We believe that all life on the earth was created with purpose and design. Therefore, we believe that human beings have a moral and ethical responsibility when it comes to the food they eat. That’s why we farm the way we do and as a result, we eat meat with a clear conscience knowing that we honored the animal during its life and in its death. We bow our heads before each meal, and we thank our Father in Heaven Read More

Good morning

Good morning, Our Farm Store is OPEN Saturdays from 10-2. Most of our layers are molting so we are out of eggs. We have plenty of our grass-fed ground beef, whole chickens that were raised on pasture, and the best pork products you will ever taste. Our customers tell us that our farm products taste great and of course, that’s true. But how we raise them is what makes the real difference. Our pigs live on grass and wood lots Read More

Now seeking new partners

We are currently seeking new partners. The ideal candidate is concerned first and foremost with health and wholeness. This person acknowledges and understands that the health of our bodies is directly connected to the health of our soil by way of the food we eat. The ideal candidate believes like us that grass-based, chemical-free farms that raise livestock using sustainable practices are the answer to achieving better health for the entire system. Our new partners are willing to support Triple Read More

We believe…

We believe that raising livestock in a chemical-free, grass-based environment is the answer to healing our planet and our bodies. It is no coincidence that so many people today are chemically dependent; our farm land has been that way for years. Nature is trying to tell us that chemicals don’t fix anything. Just google “Dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico.” The land is a living, breathing organism, and we are connected to it by what and how we eat. Read More
