Our Story

The family behind the food at Rocking 5 S Farms

Howdy, We are Jennifer and Dustin Stevens and we run Rocking 5 S Farms: a small family Farm providing nutrient dense foods directly to consumers in our community. Dustin is a veteran of the United States Navy Seabees with a background in the skilled trades and Jennifer's background is in education and health. We are first-generation farmers, enjoying this adventure with our three sons, and building our farm operation from the ground up in Emmett, Idaho. 

We are passionate about health, being stewards of our land, and delicious food! We believe in food as a source of wellness, raising good human beings with practical life skills, and building strong relationships with our community. 

Farm Practices

WHAT IS REGENERATIVE FARMING?

Regenerative farming, in short, refers to farming practices that improve our environment. Regenerative farming aims to improve soil quality, sequester carbon, and increase biodiversity; as well as reduce inputs such as fertilizer and pesticides, increase yields, and reduce pests and pathogens. Techniques include rotational grazing, rotating crops, agroforestry, and no or low till practices. Regenerative farmers often use cover crops, ground cover such as mulch, and natural or organic pest and weed management. Regenerative farming is a multi-faceted approach to address common issues with modern agriculture.

THE PASTURE RAISED PROCESS

The pasture raising process consists of mimicking an animal's natural tendencies by raising them on fresh grasses rather than in barns, cages, or lots. Animals are mobile in order to provide constant access to fresh forage, reduce contact with waste, and properly fertilize pastures. 

REGENERATIVE ON ROCKING 5 S

At Rocking 5 S Farms, we utilize a pasture-raised system.  Animals are moved daily to fresh grass in a system that improves pasture lands, builds soil, and keeps animals healthy. We aim for a closed system and implement permaculture techniques. This means we try to utilize any waste or by-product from one system to supplement another. For example; waste from winter animal bedding is used to make compost while soil and roots from spent microgreen trays are composted or recycled for the chickens to scratch through, further improving their diet and adding to soil stores on our farm.  We use natural and organic pest and weed management such as mulching, tarping, and hand-pulling. We plant trees and are developing silvopasture. We are always attempting to improve our regenerative practices to better care for our lands, water sources, and local ecology.
