Christian Worldview Of Scripture and Nature
Balancing Ecosystem Health and Human Needs
A Repeatable Systems-Based Approach
Have You Been Challenged By Ideologies That Idolize Nature?
- Seen “Mother Nature” touted as a guiding force in agriculture?
- Studied Permaculture, Biodynamics, or Regenerative Agriculture and been frustrated at the dominance of evolutionary thinking in this field?
- Wanted to think more consistently as a Christian as it applies to your farming practices?
- Wondered why “Bible-Based” farming teachers often seem shallow?
The BioStewardship approach is here to help!
How BioStewardship works:
Observe the created environment on your farm, take inventory, and classify as many living and non-living components as possible.
Evaluate the relationships between components and draft an ecosystem diagram and consider negative effects of the Genesis curse.
Brainstorm ways to innovate solutions that glorify God, set a strategic objective with key indicators to keep you on track, and a establish a review and reporting schedule that prioritizes human needs in accordance with the dominion mandate.
When it comes to food allergies, the #1 food allergy in America is pasteurized milk.
But what most people don’t realize is that raw milk — milk straight from the cow — not only has the components your body needs to break down the milk (like enzymes, probiotics, and fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and K2), but it can help heal your body and boost your immune system. Here at Bartlett Farms, our mission is to provide real foods that help your body heal naturally, giving you peace of mind knowing you’re getting quality nutrition and a settled stomach that is able to digest dairy beautifully.
Do you want to…
Build your immune system naturally?
Supply the nutrients you and your kids need to grow healthy bodies and strong bones?
Create your own butter, yogurt, or other cultured products at home?
Bartlett Farms raw milk cow-share program has been providing raw milk to hundreds of families across North Dakota since the Bartlett family began the dairy in 2009.
In North Dakota, you can’t sell raw milk as a retail product, but you can buy a share of ownership in the cow that makes your milk and get it that way — you’re not buying milk you already own. This is called a “shared animal ownership agreement” and protected by law in ND century code.
The program works on a share basis, where each share gives you about 2 gallons of milk per month per share. You can own as many shares as you need to meet your family’s needs. A contract is agreed upon when you purchase your subscription.
Delivery is available to Bismarck, Minot, Williston, Fargo, Grand Forks, and other cities in North Dakota on a bi-weekly basis. That means you’ll usually get two weeks’ worth of milk at each delivery.
Raw milk typically lasts 10-14 days from the date of milking, so as long as you keep it cold it should last until your next delivery.
Thanks to Bartlett farms and information provided by The book “Nourishing Traditions”, my family is thriving on lots of RAW MILK, pastured beef/chicken liver, fermented foods and pastured eggs from our backyard chickens.
Also- thank you for the amazing milk I know I can trust cleanliness and production-wise. I am certain that one of the reasons we had such a healthy and tall baby is the nutrients he got from the quality, safe milk we get from you guys that I drank like it was going out of style.
My son had a severe skin breakout covering his stomach & chest & it was spreading beyond. Two days on the raw milk & the itching was gone, the swelling was down, & redness almost disappeared. Two weeks he has drank the raw milk & he is 100% better. We are beyond thrilled & thankful.
