Today regenerative farmer Charles Mayfield returns this time to discuss raising pastured meat at a homestead to farmstead scale. With the current “war on food” and specifically the attack on meat this topic is more important than ever.
Charles is not just a regenerative farmer he is also an author and the founder of Mayfield Pastures & Farrow Skincare. He was led to farming through his ventures into strength training and cookbook writing. In 2016, he moved to East Tennessee and began a small regenerative farm raising beef, pork and poultry to feed his family and friends.
Following his pursuits into hemp cultivation in 2019, Charles discovered the incredible healing benefits of animal fats (specifically pastured lard) for human skin. Applying his culinary experience with the knowledge of preservative-free food, Charles founded Farrow Skincare-the first lard-based skincare product in 2020 and launched the product in January 2021.
Charles maintains his regenerative farm–feeding 40-50 families in his community and is presently looking to grow and build both meat production and the value-added capacity of Farrow. Promoting Regenerative Agriculture through the lens of skincare has become his bellwether. Applying his experience in food/nutritional coaching, it is abhorrent how many MORE toxins and chemicals are allowed in our skincare products.
