Paul Dorrance and his wife, Heather, started Pastured Providence Farmstead, a small, sustainable, diversified, pasture-based farm, in 2014. They strive to “partner with creation to produce healthy food” by raising livestock without any growth hormones, antibiotics, or chemicals. The farm's cows and sheep are 100 percent grass-fed and finished, and the pigs, chickens, and turkeys get a daily helping of grass and hay and a non-genetically modified feed, sourced from a local farmer. Pastured Providence Farmstead focuses on producing healthy food for south-central Ohio using heritage breed stock, including Red Poll cattle, St. Croix sheep, Large Black hogs, Narragansett turkeys, and Buckeye laying hens. Paul and Heather will share their values, methods, and lessons learned to both educate and encourage others who want to produce food in an ethical, humane, ecologically sound manner.
