Red Team Farm
Our Farm and Management:
We purchased our 34 acres in Odessa, Missouri in August of 2013 with the intent of creating a sustainable farm producing the healthiest food with the happiest animals on it. Almost the entirety of our land is in lush green pasture. Since we have had it and going forwards we will not apply any chemicals to the land. To manage the grass and natural fertilizers the animals give us we use a rotational grazing plan. Through this practice we hope to improve our pasture quality and density. We do not feed our animal hormones or antibiotics.
Above all faith is the most important things in our lives. We have been immensely blessed and our so grateful to God for all of them. Our goal is to take the blessing of this farm and leave it better than we found it. That is the responsible way to steward God's gifts. We have a great opportunity to be good stewards of the land he has given us and we aim to do the best we can. Also, we have the privilege of being near our family and we are so thankful to have them close and willing the help us when we need it. Additionally a great support system of friends has helped to keep us motivated and supported. Faith, family, and friends are what helps keep everything going.
We believe that everyone should have access to high quality, delicious, and nutritious food. Unfortunately our industrialized food system make the most processed and most healthy food the cheapest. For those on a tight budget it can be hard to get good wholesome food. Part of our mission is to provide that quality food to those people. Therefore we give a portion of our yearly harvest to those in need locally. Also, we allow people to purchase the food so it can be donated.
We feel so fortunate to be in place where the land can provide so much food. We truly live in a rich and fertile land. Off of this land we are growing and harvesting many things.
Currently we are offering: grass-fed beef, pastured chickens, pastured eggs, and pastured pork.
We also offer the full line of Thayer Feed for all animals. Both organic and non-GMO feed is available.
The Farm Name:
What does Red Team Farm mean and what is it about? Back when Liz and Colin were courting they started calling themselves "Red Team". Why? Not too certain, maybe it was because Colin has red hair and had played way too much football. Anyway, the name stuck and we thought it would make a great farm name. It also has deeper meaning. In our life we could not be hear without the support of our team. God, family, and friends. Teammates are always there to help and have your back. That has been our experience in our time on the farm. Our team has rallied around us when we are in need. They are all our Red Teammates. Also, our customers are Red Teamers. Without their support we could not have this farm and pursue our dream.
