Regeneratively and organically raised livestock
Truly organic and regenerative farming systems are rooted in a whole systems approach. When it comes to livestock, this means considering that all components of your farm are present, well cared for, and working in harmony with the whole farm operation. In contrast to industrial animal agriculture, which creates degradation and pollution, well managed and integrated livestock can build back soil health and nourish farm ecosystems.
