At Fulcrum Farm, we take special care to create the best possible lives for our animals because we believe that veterans deserve nothing less than food produced through homegrown, ethical farming.
How We Serve
Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Farm-Fresh
When it comes to caring for our animals, Fulcrum Farm goes to a whole new level. We put an unparalleled emphasis on our animals’ well-beings and frequently examine our practices to see how we can improve our quality of care. Integrity is a cornerstone value for our organization, and it shines through to everything we do on the farm.
Our Grass Is
We feed our animals the best diets filled with protein, calcium and other nutrients, and we give them lots of space to roam. For example, while many commercial farmers only provide a little over one square foot inside a coop to each of their chickens, our birds enjoy nearly 10 times that amount of space. We also use the nitrogen cycle instead of fighting it by constantly rotating the grazing locations of our animals. While our animals move onto new fields, the fields where they just grazed can rest, which allows plants to absorb the waste as a natural fertilizer.
Even Better Than Organic.
We don’t use the “organic” label for our products because we think it is still too low of a standard for our products. Organic food does not need to be pesticide-free to receive a stamp of approval, but we never use herbicides, pesticides, antibiotics or hormones in our farming process. We always strive to be honest and transparent about exactly how we raise each animal at our farm.
