Welcome to Kansas City's Newest Sustainable Farm

Howdy! Synergistic Acres is a new farm located near Kansas City that specializes in raising grass fed beef, pastured poultry, and free foraging pork -- or shall I say -- will focus on providing these to people around Kansas City.  That's because right now, Synergistic Acres is a farm not yet realized for the Hamons family.

We are in the process of wrapping up our comfortable suburban lifestyle and moving someplace where we can focus our attention on growing great nutritious and delicious food and sharing it with others.  This will be a major life change for our entire family as we learn how to be self-sufficient and wonderful shepherds of the land.  

Our ideas of what it means to be a farmer may be a little out of the ordinary.  We plan to raise pork, beef, and chicken on a relatively small amount of land by mimicking nature.  Through honoring the animals instincts and capitalizing on the natural systems already present in nature, we intend to harvest food while improving the land.  We will then deliver food directly to local families -- making the trip from pasture to plate as clean and short as possible.  

This is where the name Synergistic Acres comes from.  A synergistic relationship happens when the interaction of elements combine to produce total effect that is greater than the sum of the individual elements.  In this case, by following natures model and using ruminates (cows), poultry (chickens) and foragers (pigs), we will be able to create a sustainable system of production on our farm.  In addition, synergy is created as local and sustainable food is grown and consumed.

This blog will chronicle our journey through this transition. We will share the good with the bad and the funny with the serious -- all with the hope that you will feel more connected with the food you eat each day.
