On our website we hope to provide as much information as we can about our farming practices, our products, and how to learn more about healthy eating. Please feel free to contact us with questions or comments on other topics as we enjoy learning as well!
Jordandal Farms has been featured in the Sustainable Times, The Monroe Times, Bountiful Cupboard and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. In November, 2007, representatives from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel spent a day with us and published a wonderful article about our farm: Jordandal Article. There is also an accompanying Video.
GRASS FARMINGWe allow our Beef cattle and Icelandic sheep to enjoy pasture grass as much as possible so they can get necessary nutrients naturally and feed high quality hay in the winter. We also provide free-choice organic minerals and supplements which include kelp, brewers' yeast and probiotics. Unlike commercial livestock, they are not supplied with ANY grain, animal by-products, synthetic hormones or feed antibiotics. They eat what Nature intended for them to eat- GRASS. Therefore, our grass-fed animals provide us with a win-win-win situation:
WHAT IS SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE
Sustainable agriculture is a holistic approach to agriculture. Land, people, goals, capital, crops and livestock are managed to yield the best possible results on the farm. By reducing inputs, sustainable agriculture encourages conservation and multiple uses of resources. It promotes diversity, using multiple species and natural methods to recycle matter and nutrients to maintain the land productivity now and in the future. It encourages local food production as well as a diverse and sustainable farming community, drawing together farmers and consumers into cooperative partnerships.
