Our farm started originally on only .64 acres which ultimately became the origin of our name. We began farming our small plot of land because we were dissatisfied with the quality of the food from the grocery stores in the area. Even the local "Organic" grocery stores weren't quite up to our standards. We began small as most farmers do with a couple of egg laying chickens. A couple of chickens turned into more chickens for meat. We then grew into raising a pig or two per year for our own consumption. These experiences taught us that we really enjoyed the lifestyle. We purchased our current farm in 2011 and now farm 26 acres in north Georgia. We're located roughly 30 minutes from Rome, Ga and 45 minutes from Chattanooga, Tn.
Our mission is to farm responsibly by treating our land and animals with the respect they deserve. We will always raise animals in a way that allows them to express their natural behavior. Our farming practices will always be transparent.
Why complicate things? Give the animals access to the things they need and they'll figure out the rest.

Our products are raised naturally and in a way that encourages an animals natural behavior. Too often commercially produced animals are encouraged to over eat, eat the wrong foods or remain inactive. None of these things improve the quality or flavor of the product and only serves to make the animal cheaper to produce or quicker to raise. We slow down our production process to allow the animal to gain weight in a natural timeline. They're allowed to graze on many acres of pature. The added activity and grazing produces a firmer texture and more flavorful product. Good food is worth waiting for and you can taste the difference!
