Nestled in Hancock County, Indiana, this fertile land grew corn before we happened upon it. We bought it in 2010 to feed people, not profits. Fields of corn have been replaced by cattle, chickens and pigs working their way through rich pastures, dining on nature's salad bar and living as nature intended. Why? Because farmer Chris Baggott saw a broken industrial food system and wanted to play a part in the local food movement.
After a long career in the software industry, Chris committed himself to making a difference. He bought the farm, renamed it Tyner Pond Farm, and immersed himself in learning about "alternative" farming methods…meaning non-industrial. Inspired by Joel Salatin and Holistic Management principles, Chris' approach to farming is natural and sustainable, for healthier land, livestock and customers.
Assisted by his teenage sons, Chris uses rotational grazing and mobile poultry cages to produce natural, grass-fed beef, pork, chicken and eggs for your family.
And when your family wants a bigger taste of farm life, our farmhouse has been built with you in mind. Rent the farmhouse for a day, a week or a weekend, and experience firsthand the pleasures of the farm.
