Another successful month on the farm. Nutrient Farms Akaushi Wagyu cows are roaming the west pasture, we are preparing to open the NF Farm Store, & are harvesting our organic vegetables & fruits weekly! Check out our progress recap below.

The cattle have enjoyed their free rein a little too much, including surrounding neighborhoods. Installation of more fences is helping, but it’s still a work in progress. Grazing the West Pasture for the 1st time in years rapidly reminds you of all of the fence’s new defects.

Nutrient Farm is now offering 100% pure, Biodynamic, Organic, raw, unfiltered honey, produced right here on the farm from our hard working honey bees! nutrientfarm.com/products/honey
By day the cattle graze hundreds of acres on the West Pasture. By night they deposit the nutrients where the second orchard will be planted for more fruit production. Manure is a valuable source of nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium and other micronutrients and microbiology.
Happy Halloween from Nutrient Farm!
