INTRODUCTION AND INFORMATION ABOUT OUR FARM
This is the beginning of a complex and wonderful plan and idea generated in the heart and mind of two previous farm-kids who set off into Asia for their first 35 years of married life. After learning a new language and teaching and mentoring and writing strategy and policy and coordinating planning and raising three children and writing books and serving on numerous boards and acting as chairman of boards, it is now time to revitalize farmland received as an inheritance and to rejuvenate ourselves in soul and spirit. Embarking on a new learning curve, we have 'come home to roost' at our farm.
We learned about Pro-Biotic farming in the Philippines. After reading and watching many U-Tubes about Dr. Higa's use of essential microorganisms in farming, we were sold on the technological benefits of pro-biotic farming through EM-1 and composted manures. Animals that graze on pasture benefit the soil biologically through regenerative farming methods.
Our grass-finished beef are purchased as 'feeder calves' from a farmer who never feeds grain to them for weaning. We raise them on pasture grasses and hay for two years until their frame is developed and their muscle is marbled with annual grasses planted specially for this purpose. We have improved flavor and tenderness by intensely managing their paddocks.
