Our family has been farming since at least the 1600s when our ancestors immigrated to America from Europe. We’d guess that they were farming before then too. So we come from generations and generations of farmers.
We also come from generations and generations of people with autoimmune diseases. We have confirmed hypothyroidism in the family as far back as the early 1900s and almost every woman in the family since then has been diagnosed with it. We also have cases of diabetes, narcolepsy and a few other goodies.
This is what inspired us to raise healthy food.
We first started with a determination to heal ourselves. We went from grain fed to grass fed meat, followed organic and permaculture principles and even have cows free range in the wilds of the Big Bear mountains. You can’t get healthier than that. Over the years, we have seen our chronic illnesses start to improve with healthier and healthier food.
They really improved though when we learned about the Keto and Carnivore diets. These our diets that eat low or zero carb. We started with Keto and we now do…moderately good carnivore diet lol. In other words, we eat mostly meat, but we don’t stick to it perfectly. The more carbs we cut out, the more improvement we’ve seen in our health and happiness level.
I mean how could you not feel good when you start off the day with bacon every morning?
