About Us / Bending Sickle Community Farm History: We at Bending Sickle Community Farm pride ourselves on producing the highest quality heirloom meat under the most ethical management system possible.We focus on raising heritage breeds of livestock to preserve and honor the roots of traditional agriculture. Many of the breeds we raise date back generations and were once prized for their hardiness and rich, robust flavors. From heirloom pork to Label Rouge poultry, our focus is on providing a diversity of culinary flavor.We practice sustainable husbandry, rotationally grazing our stock throughout the year and constantly providing pasture, and open spaces, even in winter. We believe animals can best express natural behaviors when they have the sky overhead and the earth below the hoof.We feed our ruminants only pasture and hay, fulfilling their ability to live and thrive on the bounty that grasses provide. In addition to pasture our poultry are fed organically grown grain. Our hogs are fed a soy-free diet including organic, open-pollinating corn and red clover pasture. Our animals are hormone and antibiotic free. We believe that what our animals eat directly impacts their health and well-being, and ultimately the flavor of their meat. With this in mind, we strive to honor their natural diet as much as possible.
