​​Keeping our pastures & animals healthy

Todd joined us in March 2021, bringing his fourth generation ranching experience to managing the pastures and herd.  He is very patient, listening to Carolyn's crazy ideas and then somehow making them work!  We are very grateful for all of his and his wife Jeanette's help.

Farm Owners

Our Vision

We are working to return our land to native blackland prairie, using biodynamic principles & managed grazing of livestock to create a sustainable, drought-tolerant environment for producing healthy, energetically rich & nutrient dense food.

Keeping our vision alive & well

Our resources

We belong to several organizations that support our vision including the Weston A Price Foundation, Biodynamic Association, & the Josephine Porter Institute.

Keeping the home fires burning

Derek & Amy Simmons and their four children have been living on the property since 2016.  They have helped take care of animals, equipment and anything else that needs doing.  Their flock of chickens produce the tastiest eggs!  We are very grateful for all of their help too.

When we acquired the land for Full Expression Farm in 2010, we only knew that we wanted to heal the land.  Using Joel Salatin's Polyface Farm as inspiration, we purchased a herd of Black Angus cows that had been raised on grass and started rotationally grazing them on the property.  As we have continued to improve our practices, the land has continued to heal.  We've added chickens and sheep to the mix, each species adding its own special value to the land. We are always looking to add to the diversity and health of the property. 

Our Land

Full Expression Farm is 250 acres of rolling hills & wooded creek beds located in the country between Trenton & Leonard, Texas.
