We believe in maximizing the use of our pastures and forage crops, which allows the
animals to subsist predominantly on the plants and crops they are meant to consume.
We rotate the animals over our 1200 acres of GMO-free crops and pastures, while our
farm naturally replenishes itself through a seven-year farm cycle.
Regenerative Agriculture is a system of farming principles and practices that Harley Farms has been following for many years. It increases biodiversity, enriches soils, improves watersheds, and enhances the ecosystem. We have spent years developing rotations, using livestock and cropping to accomplish these goals.
Harley Farms main livestock rotation consists of pigs, cattle and sheep. The livestock are grazed on grassland and fed in conjunction with the various crops rotated around the farms. These crops consist of sorghum, red & white clover, oats & peas, and hay & pasture mixes. We have to continuously move our livestock, so we are not over grazing.
Our way of farming increases the earths soil health. With a carefully mapped out rotation of our animals and crops we are naturally fertilizing our soils. Restoring a healthy and enriched soil to grow our crops and grass lands for grazing.
We are pulling the harmful carbon from the atmosphere and bringing it into our soils. When the soils are enriched and healthy, you will see an improvement in water absorption. i.e. increase in ability to hold water. Which in return decreasing water shed, washing away the nutrients from the soil.
