Sorensen's Heritage Farm
Preserving the past, for a better future.
Food produced the way God designed,
not corporate America.
Where the old is new again!
Sure, modern conveniences are helpful. Computers, dishwashers, washing machines; have made our lives so much better. But the changes to our food supply have been a disaster. Animals raised is factories without ever feeling the sun. Food is being pumped with chemicals, steroids,and pesticides with devastating effects. The majority of the population has lost its connection to where the food comes from. Outbreaks of e coli and salmonella so common that they no longer make headlines on the evening news. Tom and I want to make a difference. Our goal is to maintain a diverse, humane, and safe food supply.
This whole adventure started after watching the film, Farm, Inc. I was so appalled with the ways pigs and chickens are being treated in confinement operations but felt I had no way to help them. The next day, on my way to work, I was stopped at a light when a livestock truck pulled up along side. I looked into their eyes and knew I had to do something. Having been a meat-lover all my life, I knew that becoming a vegetarian was not an option. But I also knew that buying box store meat was just making the problem worse. By the time I got home, I told Tom we're getting pigs. I will never forget the look on his face. "What do you know about pigs?" I said, "nothing, but I'll figure it out." And so it began.......
