Incubator Farm

Carolina Farm Stewardship defines an incubator farm as an educational farm which leases a portion of land to beginning farmers giving them access to equipment and expertise while freeing them from huge start-up debts. It’s a type of mentoring program to encourage new farmers who have lots of desire, but not a lot of capital. Les and I are pleased to announce that we’ll be doing just that with a group of three young men calling themselves the “Lucky Co-op.” They will be producing pastured poultry on our farm beginning this Spring. Our cows will keep the grass at the right height and not to mention providing lots of bug to scratch away at. The , in turn, will fertilize the grass for the cows. It will be that we so strive for in a . We’ll be offering support, but it will definitely be these guys: Michael, Justin, and Nathan’s enterprise. They hope to have products for sale by June.

    I forget what product it is that is supposed to really devastate the land when it comes to beef farming. I want to say it is wheat over grass, but I can't remember.

    I truly believe that grass fed is the way to go. Not only does it taste so much better, its healthier too. I highly recommend my client, La Cense Beef who offers a great selection of Grass Fed Beef that is very tasty.
