Organic Farming / Natural Farming Resources
While the pork we raise is not certified organic (we use transitional grain, meaning it’s organically raised without the certification), Homestead Hills is an organic farm. We do not sell conventionally raised crops, nor do we feed it to our pork. Homestead Hills is committed to growing organic/natural processes not only in Minnesota but across the United States, because we feel that’s what’s right.
We’re working on an organic farming resource library, if you think there’s a website we’re missing here please contact us.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/6″][/vc_column][vc_column width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]
It would be one thing to say we’re giving back to the organic farming community. It’s another to actually do something about it. We’ve developed the Connect Organic website as a platform for farmers who are looking to change their practices, learn more about organic farming, and for those who simply want to understand where their food comes from. We do accept guest posts on Connect Organic, so if you’ve got an article to write please send us a message!
Crop Fertility Services
Since 2012, we’ve been selling chicken manure pellets to organic farmers across the Upper Midwest. Not only do we sell our pellets in large bulk loads, we offer 1 ton tote bags to smaller vegetable farmers as well. We use our own chicken manure to give our soil the valuable nutrients it needs to grow healthy, vigorous organic crops.
Minnesota Organic Farming Conference
The Minnesota Organic Conference takes place in January of each year. It’s a great way for farmers to connect with their customers and vice versa. If you’re looking to learn more about how to grow your own food, or find sources or organic/natural product, this is a great place to start.
