How We Farm

Our Practices

We believe in the power of grass.

Delivered to our animals through pasture rotation every day. We pursue holistic, natural methods whenever possible, and limit artificial inputs. We believe there is a direct link between meat quality and the animal’s stress during its life.

What's in a Name?

We chose Land Basket Farm to communicate and acknowledge that the land and soil are America’s true breadbasket. We work to first enrich the soil and land, and in turn they enrich us and animal’s lives that sustain us.
