Hideaway Farm- North Bend, Nebraska
Andrew and his family are blessed to care for 16 acres of Nebraska paradise. They grow fruit/berries, veggies and we raise small numbers of cattle, pigs, ducks, and chickens.
September 22nd, 2021- Hideaway Farm pasture after grazing by pigs with buckwheat, goldenrod, rye, sorghum, field peas, and brassicas. Above is a tour of a pig paddock 5 weeks after they grazed it. Lots of diversity and green growth. Andrew's pigs are organic grain fed, rotationally grazed to encourage plant diversity and soil health.

Virtual Farm Tour with RegeNErate Nebraska
Come along, as the RegeNErate Nebraska network visits local farms for a first-hand look into the benefits and challenges of regenerative farming practices. This 5-part series will highlight the many ways that the next generation of Nebraska farmers are reclaiming their independence by putting health back into the soil.
The first farm tour is with Little Mountain Ranch and Garden near Fort Calhoun, NE with farmer Billy Alward. They have created a sustainable farm through diversifying crops, implementing solar energy and battery storage, rotational grazing with pigs in the woods and grass-fed beef, producing organic vegetables and using chemical-free products.
*Regenerative farming and ranching practices used in Nebraska include minimizing tillage, muilti-species cover cropping, multiple crop rotations, implementation of livestock back onto the soil accompanied by holistic grazing practices, agro-forestry with tree intercropping, silvopasture on grazing lands, and degraded rangeland restoration.
These videos are sponsored by RegeNErate Nebraska network partners Nebraska Communities United and Nebraska Sustainable Agricultural Society.
