At Hungry World Farm, health (in all its aspects) is always a primary goal and is absolutely central in our approach to growing plants and raising animals.
Some goals to which we aspire: Building soil organic matter and increasing biological activity. Minimal soil disturbance (e.g. tillage). Integration of animals and crops toward a closed loop system. Strong diversity. Utilizing locally available resources when possible. Respect and care shown to animals (giving animals excellent quality of life in alignment with the way the animals are meant to live). Animal feeds are chosen with care and, as often as possible, come from the HWF property.
Regarding the materials we use on the farm, our standards exceed USDA organic standards, though we have not yet pursued organic certification. We grow and raise food with integrity, and we are glad to answer any questions you may have about our growing practices and livestock management. Please contact us with questions you may have!
