6S Family Farm

Growing Goodness From the Grass Up!

6S Guiding Principles

STEWARDSHIP - We believe that ultimately nothing belongs to us, we are merely stewards of the land and animals we care for, and doing the best for God's world infuses everything we strive to do at 6S.
SOIL HEALTH - Having healthy soil means that everything that lives and grows on it is healthy too.
SUSTAINABILITY - We believe that sustainability is the best way that we can have food security for our communities.
SEASONALITY - We believe it's a wonderful thing to vote with our dollars and live and eat within the rhythm of our beautiful valley.
SIMPLICITY - We believe that it is possible to return to a simpler way of doing things and in doing so we can make a healthier individual, a healthier earth and a healthier local economy.
SUPERIOR QUALITY - We don't just sell meats .... we sell healthy, ethically raised, nutrient dense, delicious, flavourful, all natural, pastured meats ... you will taste the difference!

6S is ETHICAL and ALL NATURAL

  • We want each animal raised on our farm to be able to give full expression to its nature.  Nothing is so enjoyable and satisfying for us as farmers as to watch an animal fully content in its element.
  • Far beyond just organic, 6S is committed to no GMO's, hormones or antibiotics.
  • We are pasture based, we use low stress animal handling practices and we strive to work in sync with the natural rhythms of creation.
  • We are committed to regenerative farming practices.  We love our land, we love our animals, and we love what we do!  We're always striving to make choices that will leave our little piece of paradise even better than we found it.

6S is TRANSPARENT

    • Our farm gate is always open. 
    •  We welcome you to come and enjoy a visit to the farm.  It's our pleasure to show you what we're doing and why we're so committed to doing it well.  

    6S is FOCUSED ON SOIL HEALTH

    At 6S we know that the quality of the food we raise depends on the quality of the soil on which it is grown or raised. Nurturing healthy soil is at the root of every decision we make since healthy soils result in clean air, clean water, healthy plants, healthy animals, and healthy people. Biologically active soils produce foods that are much higher in vitamin and mineral content.  Eating food from these rich soils means that we receive all these vitamins and minerals too.  And since these soils are also able to store more carbon and water, eating local from 6S Family Farm means that you drastically reduce your carbon footprint!  What's not to love about that!
