Starting in 2009, farmers Jesse and Liz Straight, moved back to their hometown of Warrenton to build a farm that emulates nature. Raising chickens, turkeys, pigs, and cattle, they’ve built an agriculture system that allow their animals to live as closely as they would normally live in the wild. Whiffletree Farm takes great pride in allowing their animals to instinctively improve the land and the animal welfare standards they practice to provide their customers with the highest quality products as a result.

The Heritage Foods cooperative was founded in 2001 to preserve endangered species of livestock from extinction. Their partner farmers grow 100% heritage breed pigs, turkeys, lamb, chickens, ducks, guineas, and geese. All animals are raised humanely, outdoors, on pasture, using traditional farming techniques. They reproduce naturally and are never fed any antibiotics or growth hormones. Heritage meats are juicy and tender from their marbling and boast a profound taste and depth of flavor that has not been squashed by a corporate culture that only cares about rapid production.
Vital Mission Farm is a small regenerative farm with a big focus on being a part of the climate solution. Their mission is to produce the highest quality food in a manner that is nurturing for the animal, healthy for the consumer, regenerating for the soil, providing habitat for wildlife, and healing for our environment.
Established in the fall of 2007, after Kyle and Emily Becker purchased a 100 acre farm in Mooreland, Indiana. Their initial focus was freezer beef and since that time, they have diversified their farm offerings to also include pork, chicken, turkey, eggs, and milk. They sell their products direct-to-consumer at farmers markets and through a CSA program, as well as to restaurant in East-Central Indiana.
