General Description: High Hope Farm is a small but vibrant farm in the prairie country of northeast Mississippi, near the village of Cedar Bluff in Clay County, MS. We are committed to sustainable and regenerative farming practices, especially intensive rotational
and adaptive grazing without the use of hormones, steroids, antibiotics, commercial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides and other chemical inputs. We try to follow carefully these words of Wendell Berry: I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.
