- Grass fed beef, lamb and goat by wholes and halves We became Farmers to provide healthy foods for our family and to empower you and the next generation to do the same. We wanted foods free of chemicals, free of antibiotics, free of hormones, free of GMO's, free of soy, and full of nutrients, so we bought a farm, moved out of the city and started growing and producing our own food.
After 2 years of "hobby" farming on 40 acres we moved to our current farm of 169 acres in 2006.
In 2009 we sold our commerical construction company of 15 years, our "real job" in the city, and became full time farmers. We have now been farming for ~13 years and feed/mentor/train people, thats what we do.
Having made the journey from "City Folks" to "Country Folks" - let us tell you, if we can do it, anyone can do it! If you need help, we can teach you what we have learned. email Ben Godfrey for Private Consultation; fees are $50/hr/person.
