At Healing Acres Farm sustainable practices, preserving heritage breeds, education and local attention are our primary focus. We offer a large variety sustainably grown, chemical free produce, micro-greens and raise 100% grass-fed premium beef, lamb, goat, pastured pork, poultry and eggs.
The majority of our animals are on the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) endangered list. Currently we raise Scottish Highland cattle (one of the oldest heritage breeds in the U.S.), Tamworth hogs (with plans to add Large Blacks—both on ALBC’s critical list), and 4–5 heritage breeds of chickens with plans to add heritage turkeys in 2015.
We do not treat our animals with hormones or antibiotics and we do not use chemicals on the land. We have approximately two and a half acres of garden area and 700 square feet under high tunnels. Our vegetables are organically grown although not certified organic. We use non-GMO seed and grow without pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. We will soon add another 3,000 square feet of high tunnel for the 2015 season.
We are continually learning and striving to improve the quality of the land to provide better quality food for the plants and animals thus providing better quality food for you. Buy FRESH, Buy LOCAL, but most important Buy HEALTHY!
Our products are available via CSA, our Online Market (year round), at the Edwardsville Goshen Market on Saturdays (May-Oct), and the Holiday Markets at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. See our website for more information.
