WHOLESOME FOOD FOR LOCAL MARKETS

FOOD IS LIFE

We began Jóia Food Farm out of a desire to connect with our food and to live a life that is filled with genuine purpose. A life that integrates family, community, the work we do, and the food we raise.

Pasture-raised

We wanted to eat something other than factory-farmed food. We wanted active participation in the food process. We wanted to eat clean, pure and wholesome food that didn’t contain or use hormones, antibiotics, pesticides, and herbicides.

SUPER FREE-RANGE

We also were concerned about the humane treatment and handling of animals and felt we could provide our animals with livelihoods that include all of the great outdoors and allow natural habits like rooting, grazing, and scratching for bugs.

ORGANICALLY-RAISED

At Jóia, we use organic practices to guide how we raise our animals. We ensure that our animals eat a healthy and diverse diet of grains, greens and garden waste. We ensure they have access to the sun, rain, and the natural elements and that they can express their natural instincts.

NON-GMO

All of our animals are humanely raised, fed organic and/or non-gmo grains, pasture-raised, and get to do what they do naturally. We believe in happy animals for healthy food.

ABOUT US

Jóia Food Farm is a small and diverse livestock and organic crop farm located in Northeast Iowa.
Working with nature

Our goal is to be completely self-sustainable, where our livestock feeds our soils and the soils feed the plants we grow. We believe in the principles of agroecology, a whole systems approach to agriculture: linking ecology, culture, economics and society. We focus on having biodiversity, with the sharing of animals and crops working together to create healthy soils, healthy animals, healthy plants, a healthy environment, and most importantly healthy food.
