We believe in the power of Regenerative Agriculture to rehabilitate our land, grow nutrient rich food and build a thriving community
We aim to achieve the highest standards of quality and care for the land, animals, and people who help us bring good food to your table. Utilizing managed rotational grazing of diverse pasture grasses, we participate in regenerative agriculture that acknowledges the place of livestock in building living biology in our soil. We treat the animals that feed us with respect and dignity and allow them to express their natural behaviors outside in a living ecosystem. And we actively participate in our local community, supporting our fellow farmers, neighbors, butchers, and businesses to revitalize the rural communities that will make a healthier food system for all.

What is Regenerative Agriculture?
“Regenerative Agriculture includes systems of farming that reverse the loss of biodiversity, enrich soils, store carbon, restore watershed health, and increase ecosystem services, while eliminating the release of toxins and pollutants.
Regenerative Agriculture increases yield efficiency, resilience to climate fluctuation, and strengthens health and vitality of all the members of our communities, now and for generations to come.
These systems draw from decades of scientific and applied research by many global communities, including those working on organic farming, agroecology, Holistic Management, ecological restoration, and agroforestry.”

Simply put, pasture-raised chicken is chicken that was raised on a pasture. At Ololo Farm, we define pasture as a better way to raise our chickens. Our farm was born out of a desire to make humanely and regeneratively raised poultry accessible to everyone.
As consumers, we were tired of feeling misled by companies who used catchy greenwashed labeling but didn’t practice what they preached. We discovered that many companies market their chickens as “free range” even though they rarely go outside, or “antibiotic-free” despite their poultry being riddled with antibiotics.
We wanted to trust that the chicken we consumed was raised regenerativly and with a focus on the welfare of our animals, and we thought the best way to ensure that was to raise our own chickens!
