Trillium Wood Farm values
At our core we’re simple: we value integrity, responsibility, personal relationships, and have a deep love for everything Michigan. Because of this, our farm goals center around the good of our community, the environment, and our animals using mindful practices that work with–and actually regenerate–the land. It is our responsibility to make sure we leave our piece of the world in better shape than we found it for future generations; our animals healthier and happier than could otherwise be found; and our local community more engaged. It is our aim that these values are reflected in the quality of our food.
Seasonal, Local Protein
A pasture-raised livestock farm in mid-Michigan does not–and should not–look like one in the southeast U.S. or on the west coast. Raising sustainable meat means that we work with our state’s seasonal cycles rather than going against its natural growth patterns. In practice this means only raising poultry during the months they can be on pasture to nourish the land, and centering breeding schedules around the warmer months.
While we’re continually working toward a consistent supply of product, this means we may be out of certain proteins, at times.
Our promise is that our food is produced and raised with integrity, offering benefits beyond nourishing your health.
Our commitment is that you will have a connection to your food and your farmers–that you will know where your food comes from and how it was raised.
Growing and maintaining personal relationships to foster transparency in our operation is our top priority. We want you to know about the conscious practices we use such as renewable energy, sound nutrient management, pasture rotation, building soil health, and operating locally so that we can confidently call ourselves a sustainable farm. We recognize that every interaction shapes both nature and our community; we want to do our part to make sure that impact is a positive one.
