Modern agriculture produced a cheap and abundant food supply, but it comes with many hidden costs — pollution of our soil and waterways, tax dollars for subsidization of crops grown only for livestock consumption, and nutritional deficiencies for our population which has led to poorer, not higher, nutritional health, as well as higher medical costs to treat those deficiencies. At Jolie Vue Farms, we take it back to the basics — slow food, raised naturally, packed full of nutritious good fats, high protein, lean meats.
It’s just that simple.
Jolie Vue Farms rejects modern concepts of artificial fertilization of the soil, the pesticides and the herbicidal destruction of nature's “unwanted weeds and insects.” The weeds and insects play an integral part in Mother Nature's design.
Cattle were made to prosper on the natural salad bar found in our diverse, native grass pastures, and they do that on our farm. It takes a longer period of time and daily labor to get there, but the result is a superior taste to anything you will find in the conventional market.
Within large boundaries that we establish in our native oak and pecan forest, our pigs are free to roam, root, recreate and rest within that cool, shady setting. They dine on grasses, wild fruits, berries and grapes, pecans, acorns, and sprouting tap roots, supplemented by barley, corn, roasted beans, peaches, apples, peanuts and even beer.
