Encouraging Perennial Growth | How Emmer & Co. leaves the land better with regenerative agriculture. Posted on 04 Dec 07:00

We talk a lot about how Emmer & Co.’s regenerative agriculture practices help create healthy soil. A huge part of how we accomplish this is by encouraging growth of perennial vegetation. Because they return year after year, perennial plants have deep, complex root systems. Our pasture raised practices, like animal and crop pasture rotations, work to create a healthy microbial environment that allows perennial plants to thrive. It’s these deeper root systems that hold more rainwater, and strengthen the structure of the soil. This is how Emmer & Co.’s regenerative agriculture work leaves the land better!

Choose 100% pasture raised chicken for the best animal welfare. Posted on 20 Nov 07:00

If you want to buy your meat based on the best animal welfare, 100% pasture raised is a vital identifier to look for. Chickens raised entirely on pasture are able to live natural lives of running, playing, and foraging. Most producers raise chickens in barns, or give them access to a very small amount of outdoor space. Only 100% pasture raised chickens spend their lives entirely outdoors - day and night. This freedom and activity allows them to live healthy lives, and their bodies to grow and develop properly.

Choose slow-growth chicken for the best animal welfare. Posted on 23 Oct 07:00

When buying meat, many people want to make their choices based on which animals lived the best lives. One aspect of the best animal welfare is choosing slow-growth chicken. Slow-growth chickens take twice as long to grow as Cornish Cross birds, which have an unnaturally fast growth rate that causes their muscle mass to exceed their skeletal systems, causing them to live in chronic pain. A slow-growth chicken’s balanced development allows them to live healthy lives. And while Cornish Cross chickens struggle to walk, slow-growth birds are curious animals that are able to energetically explore the untouched wilderness. Emmer & Co.’s slow-growth chickens have the best animal welfare, and they're able to live the natural lives chickens are meant to.
