What is Sustainable Agriculture?
Sustainable agriculture integrates three main goals--environmental health, economic profitability, and social and economic equity. High Sierra Beef, Inc. produces in a way that is good for the animals, good for the land, good for the consumers, and good for local communities. When animals are raised on pasture, they fertilize and till the land in a balanced and organic way. Controlled grazing improves the quality of rangeland and surrounding watersheds. This helps to maintain open space, making it less susceptible to development. Consumers benefit from a healthy, tasty product. And local communities gain when small family farmers and ranchers thrive.
