We are a micro-farm dedicated to growing natural, healthy, and humanely raised food. We believe in sustainable farm practices and raising animals on all-natural pasture and grains.

We are not certified organic, but we fertilize our pasture with manure generated from rotational grazing of our livestock and we use non-toxic weed control methods.
Two Thumbs Ranch...a centennial family farm reminiscent of long ago days when everyone grew or raised their own groceries (or had a neighbor who would share).
