The McLaughlin's have over 30 years agricultural experience. As a past president of APPPA (American Pastured Poultry Producers Association) and served on the board for 4 years we have had a lot of experience particularly with pasturing poultry on pasture. They serve their community in many ways for the last 30 years in Norwich.


Really a Great Team

Jim and Peg they have successfully operated sheep, beef, goat and poultry operations. Peg is a retired nurse who has worked in both hospitals and nursing homes. This experience allowed her to be the best young stock person around. She is a great partner and brings balance to the operation. Jim and Peg have experience in non agricultural businesses as well, owning and operating a trucking company in the Northeast US. This experience has placed Jim in the position of being able to consult and implement practices on farms and businesses that will provide positive returns. We look forward to assisting you with your business operations. If we can be of any help please contact us.

The McLaughlin's did Custom Cattle Grazing. They have over 25 years experience with rotational grazing and providing seasonal pastures to graze cattle. They had over 50 acres of top quality pasture that provide cattle with the protein they need to gain weight and finish in a timely manner. They have worked with other grazer's to provide additional acreage for more animals.


Why We Are Here

God places us here on this earth to take care of it and to be good stewards of our environment, this is why we believe so strongly in sustainable agriculture. It is our responsibility to take care of this earth. The Bible says the "The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to man." Psalm 115:16 (NIV). This means we must take care of this earth and nothing happens if we (humans) don't do it. It also means when we abuse it we will be held accountable for our actions. In our business practices we have aligned with others who believe we must take responsibility for our environment.

A belief of ours is "All flesh is as grass and all the glory of man as the flower of grass". This statement means two things, one that our lives are but a fleeting moment in the perspective of both the life of this planet and in the face of eternity. Two, that we as humans survive through "grass", that is, the food that sustains us is either meat which is supposed to come from grass or that the grain (plants) we eat will sustain us. Either way all that we are physically is directly related to "grass". Grass filters the rain which we eventually drink, grass produces oxygen that we breath, grass produces meat which provides protein, grass holds the soil in place to prevent erosion and we can eat other plants directly which can also sustain us. Please take care of our environment, people, land and natural resources for our generations to come.
