Learn About Our Farms
At Azuluna Farms, we are making livestock farming more accessible by creating regional, hub-and-spoke networks composed of small farmers raising livestock on pasture using regenerative agriculture practices.
Many people in New England have considered raising livestock on their property or expanding existing agriculture at their current farm. However, folks entering the livestock industry are often hindered by the initial capital investment required to start. Additionally, small farmers compete within competitive markets amongst large agroindustrial operations, adding inherent risk to the livestock farming.
At Azuluna Farms, we are making livestock farming more accessible by creating regional, hub-and-spoke networks composed of small farmers raising livestock on pasture using regenerative agriculture practices. Within this system, a hub farm distributes resources to aspiring or nascent farmers, our spoke farmers. Hub farms equip our spoke farms with the animals, feed, infrastructure, equipment, and veterinary care necessary to begin livestock farming. Our program mentors farmers, establish rigorous standards and provide access to experts in the agricultural field.
How it Works
GUIDANCE + COMPENSATION
We guide our spoke farmers through the livestock rearing process, providing educational materials, and responding to their needs as they arise. At the end of the season, Azuluna compensates each farmer for their time and labor, purchasing the whole animal and paying competitive wages. We provide a guaranteed market for all spoke farmers, eliminating the time, energy and capital that is typically invested into processing, marketing, and sales.
At Azuluna Farms, we prioritize the health of the land and the welfare of our animals. For this reason, we hold our farmers to rigorous standards.
