Today is my day of the month to make the rounds in and around Jackson to greet customers with pasture-raised meats from our farm. As you likely know, earlier this year we committed to making monthly, regular stops at more than a dozen locations around Mobile, Gulfport, Picayune, Jackson, Hattiesburg and more communities. It's been well-received and customers appreciate the opportunity to see us on a regular schedule to get into the routine of restocking a variety of pasture-raised beef, chicken, pork and eggs.

Good morning from the farm, For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Eric, Ben and Beth’s oldest son. Recently I started working on the farm full-time taking care of our laying hens. A few weeks ago Mom and I had the opportunity to attend the 4th annual American Pastured Poultry Producers Association (APPPA) Conference in Florida.

Good morning from the farm. More and more folks are shopping directly from local farms (or at least investigating the options). In January we had 59 new customers join our farm and 24 customers made their FIRST purchase. Both are new record highs! However, as we speak with customers, many are confused (and alarmed) about what some farms consider grassfed beef. Today, I hope to provide you with questions to sort out the details and help with key decision points that will help you become a savvy shopper of farm fresh beef, pork, chicken, and eggs. First, what is grassfed beef?

Yesterday we introduced a new discount bundle featuring many of our farm favorites foods called the Best of Farm Bundle. Today I want to share WHY we put this together for you. First, regardless of whether someone is considering becoming a Nature's Gourmet Farm customer for the first time, or already a long-term, loyal customer, we wanted to offer some extra savings on these staple items that can be bought and replenished at any time. Truth be told, it's also simpler for us to package these items together, so we wanted to pass savings on to you, too.

Nature's Gourmet Farm will be unveiling a new product I'm really excited about, and we're going to be offering special introductory pricing Friday the 24th through Monday, Jan. 27th (or while supplies last).

Hello from our farm, If you’ve been to the egg counter in your local grocer lately you have seen all the different egg carton claims. Maybe you wondered what they mean? Today I want to briefly help you make sense of these claims by describing what the actual production definition is. First, what is driving all these claims in the first place? Well, the demand for pasture raised eggs is skyrocketing and affecting commercial egg producers. So, like many other products, commercial producers start working through their lobbyist to come up with claims that sound good, but still allows them to commercially raise the eggs as quickly and cheap as possible. PROBLEM – commercial producers do not take into consideration the natural instincts of the hen. The most popular claims are….

We are GRATEFUL to our many loyal customers who support our farm principles with your food dollars. This allows us to grow and expand our product offerings as well as improve convenient access in your area. 2019 Has Been A Pivotal Year For Nature's Gourmet Farm!!! A couple of key highlights are: 1) Completed the first on-farm USDA Poultry Processing Plant in MS. This will allow us to raise and distribute our pastured NON-GMO chicken anywhere in the USA 2) Installed feed bins to be a distribution point for Resaca Sun NON-GMO feeds. This helps our farm as well as other like minded farms with feed availability & cost 3) In 2019, 336 people have signed up on our website to be customers

Hello from the farm, Today, I want to take you out to the pasture as I feed hay to our cows. Our process is a modified "bale grazing" technique used by regenerative farms out west. For us, setting a whole bale out in the pasture for the cows to break into and eat caused to much hoof action and destroyed the perennial sod because our winters are much wetter. So, we simply break the bale apart into 8-10 mini piles per feeding. This way all the cows have a place "at the table"

Updates: late last week I received word that our new hen hoop structure would be ready for pickup Monday, November 25th. So, I made a fast trip to Dundee, OH Monday morning. Mr. Yoder once again had a place for me to stay the night. Tuesday morning while I enjoyed a nice breakfast his sons loaded the metal into my cattle trailer. From there, I traveled to Seven Sons farm and Hen Gear to pickup the 20 new nest boxes. While there, I was able to discuss our plans as well as see all the updates to their farm since we last
