100% Organic Vegetables
Stahlbush Island Farms provides Serenity Kids with organic vegetables from its certified sustainable family farm in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. In addition to growing nutrient-dense and delicious organic produce, Stahlbush uses innovative techniques to enhance soil health, conserve water, and promote biodiversity on the farm. Stahlbush also generates electricity from their fruit and vegetable by-product using their own biogas plant. By processing things like corn husks and cobs, they are able to power their processing plant, generate steam for their boilers, and heat water for sanitation. At Stahlbush, they believe that there is no such thing as waste, only underutilized resources. For more information, click here to check out their website!
100% Grass Fed & Finished Bison
Katie and Taylor Collins started Roam Ranch with the goal of raising nourishing food that was good for both people and the planet. They believe so strongly in the power of regenerative agriculture that they transformed land that was depleted from commercial practices into a thriving and biodiverse ranch that supplies Serenity Kids with responsibly-raised grass-fed, grass-finished bison. Katie and Taylor are inspired by the resilience and raw power of bison, driven by the desire to connect their daughter Scout with nature, and fulfilled by knowing that they are producing the best food on the planet, for the planet. “If we want to sustain our civilization, nourish our families, and enjoy the bounties of nature,” Taylor says, “we must transition our food production system to a regenerative model. It has the potential to heal land, produce nourishing food, combat climate change, and create wildlife habitat for generations to come”. For more information, click here to check out their website!
100% Pasture Raised Pork
Owned by John and Holly Arbuckle, Singing Pastures raises its heritage-breed pigs on lush, grassy pastures in Coastal Maine. After growing up on a multi-generational family farm, John recognized the changing landscape of the industry, studied sustainable agriculture in college, and set out to start his own farm. Their pigs roam and graze freely on their land, which is carefully maintained using regenerative agriculture techniques to promote the health of the animal, the soil, and the environment. “I like to ponder on the three things that we're doing for the community,” John says. “It’s good for the earth, for the consumer, and for the animal. It's extremely satisfying to know that happy pigs are creating happy babies and a happy earth”. For more information, click here to check out their website!
100% Grass Fed & Finished Beef
Alvin Joyce founded Joyce Farms in 1962 and the farm has stayed under family ownership since its then. Alvin’s son and current President and CEO, Ron Joyce, witnessed a changing food industry that shifted focus to a system of mass production that sacrificed quality for profits. Ron saw an opportunity to produce better tasting and healthier animals by going back to old world genetics and farming practices. “Regenerative agriculture builds soil health, promotes ecosystem diversity, and eliminates the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers. It also offers a more humane life for livestock and a more nutritious and flavorful final product,” Ron shared. For these reasons, he is proud to a practitioner of and advocate for regenerative agriculture, and proud to provide Serenity Kids with its nutrient-dense and responsibly-raised grass-fed cattle.

WHITE OAK PASTURES
100% Pasture Raised Turkey & Chicken
White Oak Pastures raises humanely-treated animals that create a living ecosystem in which all animals benefit from the symbiotic relationships between their ten different species. The pasture-raised turkeys that White Oak Pastures provides to Serenity Kids play an important role on the farm: their strong feet and long beaks help to disturb and build organic matter in the soil. White Oak Pastures practices regenerative agriculture and believes that responsible farming is the answer to many challenges of our modern society. “Nature abhors a monoculture,” says Jenni Harris, Marketing Director and daughter of White Oak’s founder. “Our first approach is to work with nature, not against her.” White Oak’s impact extends beyond the farm, too. The Harris family and their team has led a massive revitalization effort of the town that has been home to their farm for over 150 years. Their efforts have revived the local economy, reopened the town’s general store, and created jobs for the community, making Bluffton, Georgia, a beautiful and sustainable place to live and work.

VIRGIN BAY SEAFOOD
100% Wild Caught Salmon
Virgin Bay Seafood takes pride in their fish and in connecting with their consumers. Pacific salmon vary in quality, nutrition, and flavor, but Mike Stolz, captain and owner, promises that the Yukon Keta salmon that Virgin Bay provides to Serenity Kids is “the healthiest, tastiest, most ethically harvested fish in the world.” What makes it the best of the best? Their wild salmon is caught at the mouth of the 2,000-mile Yukon River. The fish build up huge stores of oil to prepare for the long upstream journey which results in some of the highest concentration of omega 3s of any fish in the world, and the highest in Alaska. The fish are caught by members of the native Alaskan tribe of Yup’ik Eskimos. By employing these fisherman, Virgin Bay supports the local economy and helps these Native Alaskans to remain on the land they love. “Yukon Keta salmon is the best kept secret in Alaska,” says Mike. “The thing is, we don’t want it to be a secret anymore.” For more information, click here to check out their website!

100% Free Range Chicken
Founded by Corwin Heatwole, a sixth-generation farmer, Farmer Focus is on a mission to promote and protect generational family farming by partnering with independent family farmers to humanely raise organic chicken. “Our farmers genuinely care and are invested in the welfare of their birds,” says Heatwole. “That translates into a high quality of life for our birds, a more sustainable farm for our farmers, and a more delicious chicken for you.” Farmer Focus' care for animals goes beyond certified Organic feed; all of the farms are also certified humane. Their chickens are free-range, which means they get a lot of natural light, outdoor pasture access with lush vegetation, and shade structures to keep them protected while they forage and play. Their access areas and the immediate area around them are pesticide and herbicide-free, which makes for more land that can flourish and grow, welcoming pollinators and other critters to contribute to the ecosystem and keep the soil rich and the water clean. Regenerative agriculture is one way Farmer Focus ensures that their farms can be passed down to future generations. The high standards create a better lifestyle for the chickens and farmers alike. Learn more about Farmer Focus, how to support independent farmers, and change the future of farming here.
100% Organic Vegetables
In the sunny central valley of California, farming is one of the predominant industries. Meet Grimmway Farms (who trace their roots to a small produce stand opened originally by the Grim brothers). Today, Grimmway is the world’s largest producer of carrots, and we’re so lucky they grow the organic vegetables (all-year-round!) found in our pouch purees. Grimmway Farms acquired Cal-Organic farms in 2001; at that time, there was not really much of a market for organic produce. However, the Grimmway founders saw the potential of growing organic produce to increase availability and preserve the land with a more sustainable approach to farming. Regenerative agriculture and organic produce lie at the heart of their business’ mission and values. Beyond treating the earth and their products with TLC, Grimmway treats their employees like family and creates a sense of community in the local area. “There is a focus at all levels on improving the lives of employees and the community at large and it evident in the manner in which business is conducted.,” says Gina Erb, Grimmway Veggies Technical Sales Manager. We’re proud to partner with Grimmway Veggies due to their sustainability practices, regenerative farming, organic products, and commitment and dedication to quality.
