Broad River Pastures

Broad River Pastures is a small family farm dedicated to promoting nutrient-dense food and protecting heritage breeds. We focus on education, sustainability, and humane care of animals. We do not use any chemical pesticides, fertilizers, or herbicides on the land. We are exploring various farming methods compatible with our values to enrich the soil. We participate in conservation of soil and watershed. In addition, we strive for nutrient dense produce by using minerals, soil inocculants, and other sustainable permaculture practices to support a rich soil microbiology. We practice soil testing and are developing a rich compost product using inputs from our own farm.

We welcome visitors by appointment only and have a vibrant intern program for aspiring farmers. We welcome applicants at any time. Our next opening is projected for August, 2014. We also work with local weekend homestead students. Frequent updates on farm activities can be found at

Our free-range poultry are on pasture from sunrise to sunset, then enclosed into coops for predator protection. The ducks have access to a pond during daylight hours. Our pedigreed, heritage meat rabbits are in large, clean, wire cages in the fresh air and sunlight with shade and water at all times. Our Gulf Coast Native heritage wool sheep and Guinea Hogs are rotationally grazed within temporary electric fences, permanent cross fences, and woven wire perimeter fence. Our lamb is pastured and grass fed. All livestock is supplemented with land and sea minerals to promote their health and to increase the nutrient value of the meat and composted manure.
