Our farmer profile this month is the Grassroots Coop, farmers of pastured beef, forested pork and pastured poultry. Fatworks sources much of our Pasture Raised Pork fat and Pasture Raised Leaf fat from the Grass Roots Coop as they perfect match our mission.
Grassroots COOP is a stanch promoter and practitioner of regenerative agriculture and are (in their own words) “the future of farming.” We certainly hope that this turns out to be the case, as each farm in the CO-OP is vetted to be pasture raised and forest raised, as well as guaranteeing that their animals are free from antibiotics and hormones, with absolutely no gmos in their feed. Grassroots CO-OP works with over 40 small farms spanning coast-to-coast, from the fertile ranches of Oregon, to Ozark Highlands Ecoregion of Arkansas, to the river-laced lands of Mississippi. The pictures included are from a member family farm in Arkansas called Falling Sky Farm where the pigs get to go hog wild in fertile forest land and sunny pastures.
