We are a farm in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are only 30 miles from the city but we raise pigs and chickens on large acreage so that is one of the factors that make us very unique. Our focus is pasture raised pork and chicken. Our animals are raised humanely with lots of space, sunshine, attention and good nutrition. Our pigs and chickens are happy and healthy. We believe this is the better way to produce meat for food - it's better for ourselves, the animals, the environment!
Our farming methods follow many permaculture principles. Regenerating the land is a top mission of ours. We want our operations to work with nature, not against it. Hence our name, New Growth Farm, which really applies to our goals for the environment, our animals, and ourselves.
Besides agriculture, our goal is to add an education component to the farm, with classes that teach children how to live a sustainable way of life. We hope for this to be equally important as the meat production part of our farm in the future.
Our customers are ones who care deeply about the same values as we do, which include sustainable agriculture, personal health, animal welfare and the environment. We don't have the education component yet but obviously part of our customers will also be parents and children who care about these values as well.
We have a website, http://www.newgrowthfarm.com, where you can find out more about us.
