Our Farm's Story
Hello, we're the Morrison's and we run Earnest Roots Farm. We started
getting serious about this way of life in 2017, when our first baby was
born. We had tons of questions like "Where does our food come from? Who
produces our food? How is our food produced? Why are chemicals used to
make it grow? What impact does it have on our health? What impact does
it have on our environment? How are the animals raised? What are the
animals fed? What are GMO’s? What does all those food labels even mean?"
These are questions that most of the population cannot answer.
We have decided to be part of a movement that connects the farmer
back to the consumer. “Know your Farmer, Know your Food” - this simple
phrase has never been more achievable. Earnest Roots Farm would like to
be your farmer and invite you to join us on this journey and bring light
to some of these questions and many more.
We strive to produce the healthiest, most nutrient dense and
flavorful food we can with quality in mind – not quantity. The meats we
offer are free of any additive chemicals or pharmaceuticals, all while
being environmentally conscious and positively affecting the ecosystem
around us. We supplement our pigs and chickens with verified GMO-Free grain and our beef and lamb are grass-fed. Using sustainable and regenerative agriculture practices,
along with holistic animal management, we work with nature by managing
the animals to improve the land. Instead of using synthetic, petroleum
based, chemical fertilizers we use compost and animal manure with a
focus on building soil structure as well as fertility. This is
done with movement - animals were not created to be raised on concrete
floors in confined houses or feed lots of dirt. God created every plant
and animal with their own unique characteristic and they thrive in a bio
diverse environment. Our animals are raised using portable housing and
electric netting. This allows us to consistently move them to fresh
grass and pasture. All of this working together completely changes the
quality of the product; thus, the eating experience is completely
different than that of its counterpart.
We sincerely thank you for your support. Every time you choose to
shop local, you encourage that farmer to do what they do and you provide
them with the assets they need continue to grow and provide more and
more varieties of products.
