The Quest for “Virtuous Victuals” (i.e.: food with integrity)
We started out as a small hobby farm on 1 acre of land with the initial goal of cultivating relationships between swine, the earth and the patrons of our restaurant, Cristina’s Café. An attempt at biodynamic farming practices was futile on such a small parcel of earth but it served as an experimental facility preparing us for the day when we could finally expand our endeavors.
On our new 26 acre tract of land we are continuing this very same model of rotating heritage breed pigs and chickens from pasture to forest, while planting cover crops and usable produce items for sale at the Café.
In 2015 we branded ourselves as Cerdonia Farm, a synthesis of our Mexican heritage using the Spanish word cerdo (pig) to denote the love affair we have with the very porcine creatures that led us to the path of sustainability years ago.
