GMO-Free

At Passel Hills Farm, nestled on the serene banks of Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia, our commitment to sustainable and ethical farming practices is deeply ingrained in every aspect of our operations. Central to this philosophy is our dedication to using only non-GMO, locally sourced feed for all our poultry and livestock. We understand that the quality of what we feed our animals directly impacts not just their health and well-being but also the nutritional value and taste of the produce we offer to our community. By partnering with local suppliers for our feed, we ensure that our chickens, pigs, and other farm animals receive a diet that's not only free from genetically modified organisms but also rich in natural nutrients. This practice supports local agriculture, reduces our carbon footprint, and guarantees that the eggs, chicken, pork, and produce from Passel Hills Farm are of the highest quality, embodying our mission to nurture the soil and feed the community, one meal at a time.

Drug-Free

At Passel Hills Farm, our philosophy of nurturing nature extends deeply into every aspect of our farming practices, especially in how we raise our chickens. In a steadfast commitment to both animal welfare and the purity of our produce, we proudly maintain a strict no-drug policy for our poultry. This means that every chicken under our care is raised without the use of antibiotics, hormones, or any synthetic substances. Our belief is that healthy, happy chickens lead to healthier, more flavorful eggs and meat. By relying on natural methods, such as rotational grazing and providing a diverse diet filled with grains, insects, and greens, we ensure our chickens thrive in a stress-free environment that mimics their natural habitat. This approach not only supports their immune system naturally but also reinforces our dedication to delivering products that are genuinely wholesome. At Passel Hills Farm, it's not just about what we don't use; it's about fostering a cycle of life that respects the earth and the animals, ensuring that we can provide our community with food that's ethical, sustainable, and delicious.

Pasture Raised

At Passel Hills Farm, the term "pasture-raised" encapsulates the essence of our farming ethos and our unwavering commitment to animal welfare and environmental stewardship. To us, it means that all our animals, from chickens to cows, live their lives outdoors, roaming freely in our lush, green pastures. This natural lifestyle allows them to engage in instinctive behaviors such as grazing, pecking, or rooting, which is pivotal for their physical health and emotional well-being. Our pasture-raised approach ensures that the animals enjoy a diet that's rich and varied, directly from the land, which we believe significantly enhances the nutritional quality and flavor of our produce. Moreover, this method plays a crucial role in the sustainability of our farming practices, as it promotes healthy soil through natural fertilization and reduces the need for chemical inputs. For Passel Hills Farm, being pasture-raised isn't just a label; it's a reflection of our deep respect for nature's balance and our dedication to providing our community with food that's ethical, sustainable, and genuinely nourishing.

Vaccine-Free

At Passel Hills Farm (PHF), our approach to animal husbandry is deeply rooted in natural and holistic practices, with a strong emphasis on creating a healthy and stress-free environment for all our farm inhabitants. A key aspect of this philosophy is our decision not to use vaccines on any of our animals. Instead, we focus on preventive measures to ensure their well-being, such as providing ample outdoor space for them to roam, ensuring a balanced diet with high-quality, nutrient-rich feed, and maintaining strict biosecurity measures to prevent disease outbreaks. We believe that by fostering a living environment that closely mirrors their natural habitats, we can support our animals' immune systems to function optimally without the need for artificial interventions. This choice reflects our commitment to sustainable farming practices and our dedication to producing food that is not only wholesome and nutritious but also ethically and responsibly raised, aligning with our customers' values and expectations for transparency and natural quality in their food sources.

A cornerstone of this dedication is our steadfast policy of being a "no spray" farm. This means that all the fruits and vegetables grown on our land are cultivated without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fungicides. Instead, we employ a variety of sustainable farming techniques, such as crop rotation, natural composting, and the use of beneficial insects for pest control. These methods not only ensure the health and safety of our soil and produce but also protect the surrounding ecosystems and wildlife. By choosing not to spray, we guarantee that every item harvested from PHF is as pure as nature intended, offering unparalleled taste and nutritional benefits. This approach is a testament to our belief in working harmoniously with nature to produce food that's good for people and the soil.
