R & R: Revive and Reconnect.
Reviving soil and animal health by Reconnecting animals to the land, and mimicking migration movements through rotational grazing.
Reviving human health by Reconnecting people to genuinely wholesome food.
Reviving community by Reconnecting to the family farm.
We as citizens have a right to purchase and consume any food stuffs of our choosing. Thus, promoting self-reliance and the preservation of family farms and local food traditions. We recognize that family farms, sustainable agricultural practices, and food processing by individuals, families, and non-corporate entities offers stability to our rural way of life by enhancing the economic, environmental, and societal wealth of our community. We support food that fundamentally respects human dignity and health, nourishes individuals and the community, and sustains producers, processors, and the environment.
