Julia Asherman moved to ...

animalwelfareapproved.org [cached]

Julia Asherman moved to Georgia in 2009, after graduating college with a degree in fine art, and fell in love with the long growing season, hot summers, challenging soil and Southern country ways. With a green thumb inherited from both her mother and grandmother, she began farming and established Rag & Frass Farm in 2012, where she grows vegetables, cut flowers and raises Certified AWA laying hens and ducks for eggs.

Rag & Frass Farm consists of an old motel, barn and roadside store covering just over 54 acres. The land is divided by a small creek and includes pasture, woods and a pond. "The land here is gently sloping," says Julia, "with a sandy clay soil called coastal plains red uplands. Julia grows the vegetables and cut flowers on roughly 3 acres of pasture and four greenhouses, and rotates her Certified AWA laying hens and laying ducks through that acreage and more.
The flock of Certified AWA laying hens includes Rhode Island Reds, Black Austrolorps, Barred Rocks and Aracaunas. The hens are raised outdoors on pasture where they can perform natural behaviors like running, dust bathing, pecking and scratching for grubs and seeds. "I have 50 laying hens and 20 laying ducks-small flocks perfect for my small-scale farm," says Julia.

The most important aspect of Julia's animal husbandry practices has to do with the birds being able to perform their natural behaviors: "We don't expose the birds to artificial light or push production," says Julia. "We take what they give us, and then allow them to retire to an orchard to live out their less-productive lives in exchange for their pest management and fertility benefits. We don't slaughter birds after they have peaked their egg production."
"To me, the happiest animals are animals invited to express their intrinsic, instinctual nature for the entirety of their lives," Julia adds. "We believe all animals should be protected from predators and harm and have easy free access to good food and water, and also that they should be allowed to forage, nest, perch, bath, run and investigate all their natural tendencies at free will."
Julia pursued AWA certification because of the verification it provided her high-welfare, sustainable farm management and for the recognition the label brings in the marketplace. "I sought out AWA because I believe there should be accountability to livestock, and to our customer's trust and information. I hope AWA certification helps to both distinguish our eggs from our competitors and to maintain organization and integrity for our operation."
Looking toward the future, Julia has both short- and long-term goals for the farm. "My short term goals are to work hard, grow good food and love the land. My long-term goals are to continue doing these things, pay off my mortgage, and make sure the farm stays able to support the lives of the animals and people working it ... and to have fun!"
Certified AWA chicken and duck eggs from Rag & Frass Farm are available directly from the farm on the roadside stand (contact the farm for hours) and from area farmers' markets. Check the AWA directory for details.

Julie and Stephen DeMilt raise Certified AWA pigs at Past Ur Time Farm in Rutherfordton, North Carolina. While neither Julie nor Stephen grew up in a farming family, both had a mutual interest in farming and decided to learn more about it. The interest grew into a passion and they purchased the 30-acre farm near Rutherfordton in 2012. It was the former owner of the farm who first introduced Julie and Stephen to AWA certification; as they became more settled on the farm, they knew they were interested in raising livestock and pursuing AWA certification.
