❓Did you know potatoes at the grocery store have been sprayed with an herbicide generically called "sprout nip" which prevents the tubers from growing? Preventing the natural cycle of plants in the name of making real food look artificially perfect.
---
A couple weeks ago I took out our remaining potatoes from last year's harvest (they last all winter long, in case you were on the fence about growing some). And was washing them up for dinner when I thought "Eh, what if I set some aside to grow plants instead?" So I stuck them in a drawer and two weeks later, these buggers are ready for planting. #WhyIsThisSoEasy?
---
While you can grow them from actual seed, potatoes are most commonly grown via "vegetative propagation" i.e. Every potato you've eaten has been grown from another potato which was grown from another potato and so on.
These are called seed potatoes, which grow stems from the little eyes we all used to pick off as a kid. The seed potato is packed with the nutrients the plant needs to get started. By the end of the season, the seed potato is all used up, disintegrating into dirt (photo #6) and 3-6 new potatoes are ready for harvest!

Welcome to the Jungle

Conventionally raised pigs *never* get to live like our pigs do. Instead, our bacon gets to roll in the mud, our hams get to root through the soil, & our chops get to mow down the pasture.
🐷🐽🐷🐽🐷🐽
***And great news!! We've completed a final inventory and released a limited quantity of previously SOLD OUT cuts. If you've been hankering to try this roll-in-the-mud meat, check out RenovoFarms.com/order-now, & we'll contact you about pick up! (Sunday 25 & Wednesday 28.)

🐷 Bulk Pork Orders are NOW OPEN. This is our most important announcement as it's the figurative "bacon" of our operation. (Read: the cream of the crop.) Arguably the best way to experience true clean, pasture-raised pork. You in?

We now go to the feed mill TWICE a week to keep them hogs growing. Whereas convention feed has 3 ingredients: corn, soy, mineral mix. 🙄 Our custom feed contains barley, whole wheat, linseed, minerals, salt, molasses, and oats. No corn or soy in sight. The result? No GMOs, less greasy meat, more flavor, less saturated fats, healthier animals, and healthier humans.

Our homegrown pastured bacon with our grass-fed New York Strip. Holy WOW. Not only have we eaten better than at restaurants, but the NUTRITION and FLAVOR are *leagues* beyond commercial processed meats (and none of it broke the bank). Meat grown the good old fashioned way. #raisedwithrespect

They're back!!
Exhausting weekend picking these guys up and bringing them to their new home, where they're having a splendid time tearing up the ground. We significantly underestimated the destruction power of a baby pig snout. It's in a pig's nature to root, and they should never have to live their lives on concrete slabs. Mom, dad, and Kendra all held pigs for the first time - which is actually a really fun thing to do. Dad named his pink one Floyd (get it?...) and Mom named her's Boomer. Since it was chilly this weekend, we put together a straw-filled shelter, in which the pigs burrow down, often until only their ears show (see photo - there are actually three piggies in the bottom half of the photo). These pigs are respected for their purpose, and taken care of as they should be. Thanks to everyone who helped either with their labor and by loaning their supplies. Year THREE baby.

How Today’s Chickens Got Bigger And Less Nutritious Than Ever Before

Cheap meat costs more than the $ at the cash register.
"Chicken prices fell so low that it became the meat that Americans eat more than any other — and the meat most likely to transmit foodborne illness, and also antibiotic resistance, the greatest slow-brewing health crisis of our time."
https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/10/17/declining-chicken-nutrition.aspx

CAFO-raised chickens, which make up the majority found in grocery stores, pale in comparison to pasture-raised chicken in terms of nutrition.

When their faces aren't stuck in the mud, or eating as much grass as they please, they're either chewing on our feet or chowing down on the fermented non-GMO feed. You should see those little tails wagging. :)

These ugly "ducklings" are going through their awkward stage, which also happens to coincide with their transitioning to the big boy outdoors. They now go bonkers chasing bugs, digging up dirt, and chowing down grass. Joshua built them a new home, and they're loving it.

Last call for pork!

This summer we returned from Asia, built an apartment, took a cross-country job, hand raised 100+ chickens, wrestled pigs, acquired a rafter of turkeys overnight, and were thrilled to send every bird to a hungry home. Thanks all for a wonderful summer. Pigs are headed to the processor this week, and the farm will close up shop for the winter.

This is the last call for bulk pork in either whole or halves (estimating 150 lbs to 200 lbs). $4.75/lb + processor’s fee ($0.40-$0.90)

Due to the high number of requests and the small size of freezers, we recently decided to save a couple pigs for retail cuts (though unless you get a honkerdoodle, a half hog split between 2 families should fit in a standard upright kitchen freezer no problem).

Cuts including bacon, sausage, hams, roasts, ribs, and chops can be purchased individually at retail prices, which will range from $5.49 to $8.99.

If you’ve been on the edge and would like to try farm-raised pork without the bulk purchase, this is a great way to sample or stock up.

All animals on this farm have been pasture raised with no antibiotics, non-GMO and in the great outdoors.

Because some cuts will go fast (and we all know which ones I’m talking about), please let me know how much you will generally want ASAP, and I will schedule a Woodbury delivery.

Our own pork will be sizzling in the crock pot every week this winter and my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

As of last week, we are sold out of our chickens for the year! A happy thank you to those who’ve joined tribe. Big, juicy pork is already 50% spoken for, and the Thanksgiving turkeys are plumping beautifully.
The farm-wide harvest is on. Apples by the truckload, bags of herbs drying on racks, and canning on the weekly. Best time of the year, amirite?

Who We Are

Joshua and I are doers. It just so happens that we're also clean eaters. Given a love of creatures, a dedication to staying healthy, and a dream of a sustainable farming, the “farm” began. We believe all food should be produced with the consumer's and animal’s health first in mind. All animals we raise live the healthy, pastured, outdoor lives they're meant to. We prioritize ethical treatment (how can we not when we love the animals so much?), pasture-based lives, and pure meat with no additives, fillers or plumpers.

For a great, in-depth look at Renovo Farms, check out RenovoFarms.com!

Hello all! We straight up flew through our beef from spring and with folks asking for more, we'll be processing a round of 100% grass-fed beef available in December. After a summer full of the great outdoors and green forage, CLA levels are up, Omegas are in full swing, and Carotene is high. Quarter, half, and whole available. Next availability will be approx fall 2020. We also have 2 quarters or 1 half available for anyone who wants to stock their freezer right now. Interested? Drop me a line! Also at Renovofarms.com And if anyone knows families like the ones in John Wayne's neck of the woods, hook us up! Quarter of beef a week per family for 2 years of homesteading... 13 cows a year. Joshua could probably eat that much on his own.
In this day and age, a true farmer's job extends way past food production and encompasses the responsibility of educating of our communities. Here's to Renovo Farms and the mountain we're prepared to climb. #bringiton Renovofarms.com
Just had our first pack of bacon, and I can honestly say, this was the best bacon we have ever eaten! Thank you so much for all of your hard work! You've earned a customer for as long as you raise pigs!
