Photos: a “beyond-organic” farm


Barney Bahrenfuse and his wife Suzanne Castello run a small farm in Grinnell, Iowa. They raise livestock, including hogs, sheep and cattle. The couple practices sustainability with their farming. They strive to preserve their topsoil, and they try and stay away from using chemicals on their land.

Additionally, Barney and Suzanne take a humane approach toward their animals; all of their livestock are given lots of room to roam. They also avoid giving their animals hormones and antibiotics, opting instead for a more natural approach to farming.
