Jesie and Matthew Lawrence built their farm and family simultaneously. A desire to gain food transparency for their loved ones, and the community at large, inspired the couple to start Marble Creek Farmstead. An hour’s drive from Birmingham, the Sylacauga, Alabama farmstead, has a full range of products. In addition to growing fruits and vegetables, the farmstead is also home to chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, goats, sheep, and grass-fed cattle.
The Lawrence’s focus on hogs rests primarily with Berkshire and Tamworth breeds. The Berkshire has been called the "Kobe of Pork," for its marbling, tenderness and rich flavor. The Tamworth is known as the "Bacon Pig" for the ability to grow mass without having too much fat. Marble Creek Farmstead is also home to Large Black and Red Wattle hog breeds. With room to roam in pastures of clover, rye, bluegrass, buttercups, and flowers, the hogs instinctually root around, eating grasses, dirt, and grubs. The pigs also have access to spent brewer’s grain, fermented grains of wheat, barley and sorghum from nearby brewers, as well as a supplemental non-GMO feed.
Zach Miller grew up on his grandfather’s farm in Charlottesville, Virginia when it was still a “gentleman’s farm” for racehorses. But Zach and his parents wanted to take the family legacy in a new direction. Zach wanted to see the farm—his childhood home—preserved as a profitable model of an alternative to industrial agriculture. That meant great-tasting steaks, healthy grasses, and a land stewardship that could continue long into the future.
Craig Thompson is a fourth-generation California farmer whose parents still grow rice in Richvale. But in 2011, he and his wife Jenny -- both in their late 20s at the time -- decided to start a new branch of the family farming tradition. They bought a small parcel of 100 acres in mountainous Siskiyou County, and founded Rockside Ranch: a mission-oriented, nonprofit livestock farm that teaches youth in crisis job skills through farming apprenticeships.
After 12 years working in restaurant kitchens as a chef, Jeremy Storey found himself in Chicago, working the front of the house at Alinea, a Michelin-starred restaurant known as the foremost home in North America for the rarified cuisine known as molecular gastronomy. From his vantage point in the dining room, Jeremy watched purveyors -- farmers, fishermen, and hunters -- walk through the doors in the morning, fresh off the fields, boat, or woods, holding boxes of their finest findings for the chefs’ perusal. Though he’d landed arguably one of the better jobs in the country as far as the restaurant world goes, Jeremy couldn’t help but envy those producers.
I'm so happy that you guys created this and that I found it. It is such an easy way to get amazing quality beef and the prices are great. Plus I'm trying some cuts that I never would have otherwise.
