Homewood Farms is a central Ohio, Delaware County, farm that operates like no other farming operation. We value the soil and promote soil health by replacing what has been used or eroded away. The commodities that we produce are of utmost quality. The end user values our grains for their livestock food supply. Grains we produce promote health of the livestock so they can produce without man’s intervention, and can eliminate the use of antibiotics and hormones that taint our meat supply. This is what consumers want, and where the industry is headed.
We are growing grain the way it was meant to be produced. Putting quality and health back into the food supply we use to raise our livestock. Our goal is to make Americans healthy again, starting with the food they consume.
It has been proven that GMO crops lack essential minerals and micro-nutrients. The extensive use of Gyphosate (Roundup) restricts the uptake of these elements in the plant and the end product (the grain we feed) is basically dead and doesn’t promote animal or plant health or a quality product. Our bodies don’t recognize GMO crops and cannot metabolize these types of grains.
The nutrients we use are natural mined products from all over the United States that are packed with critical minerals and micro-nutrients. Commercial fertilizers are made of the same materials we use. The difference is that commercial fertilizer manufacturers only want one element like potassium or phosphorus. The natural material is then treated with chemicals and washed so that the end product is straight phosphorus or potassium and all the valuable minerals are washed away. They do this to lessen the amount being shipped all over the country, it is in concentrated form. Most farmers only apply 100 lbs of product, Homewood Farms applies 500-800 lbs of the raw nutrients. This really brings the soil back to life. The raw nutrients consist of hundreds of essential minerals that the commercial industry sees little to no value. The fertilizer industry wants to sell micro-nutrients separate from the N-P-K (to make more money) they don’t care if the micro-nutrients are loss.
On the farms we lease, we work with landowners and make them aware that the product we harvest from their farm is going to promote herd health and will produce an excellent end product. Landowners appreciate that their land is part of something that promotes quality food and good health. Be part of something great. America is a great country and the leader in agriculture. America needs to lead the way in producing quality produce. It all starts in the soil.
Make your farm part of a great movement to put quality back into our food supply. You can make a difference. We are looking for farms to promote and be a part of the quality food movement. We would love to farm your land and produce quality grains.
Let GMOs go to fuel, and non-GMOs go to food! There is a better way, and this is it! The future of American Agriculture depends on it! Help us in growing for the future, eliminating GMO’s, and bringing the farm back to the family. We are striving for excellence in American Agriculture and the Family Farm. Here you will find American Agriculture at its Best.
