Hi, I'm Remi! I was 11 years old at the start of this farming adventure in 2011, and when my parents moved back to their hometown in 2019, I decided to plant myself in Missouri and continue running the farm. Kaitlyn and I got married in March of '21 after working together most of 2020. She's not only the coolest person in the world (IMO), but she has a passion for animal care and holistic living.
Together we currently manage all aspects of sales & marketing, including farm events, customer experience, deliveries, and order and product management. We also jump in to help with farm projects and daily animal moves.
We find fulfillment in caring for creation and serving others, and we love doing both from our small farm in Concordia, MO.
David and Kim began David's Pasture in 2011 after growing tired of corporate America, and the lies in our food system. They began with a single batch of chickens, and the business slowly grew over the course of time. In January of 2019, (most of) the Kesten family moved back to their home state of Florida to be with and care for relatives. Even so, they are still very much a part of David's Pasture.
John manages the beef production and leads our team. He is an integral part of the planning and inner workings of the business. The Cox children enjoy helping us around the farm and have begun growing their own shiitake mushrooms (stay tuned!)
Reeves is the third oldest of the Kesten kids. He currently lives in our tiny house and is responsible for the care of poultry and pigs and farm upkeep. As a boy, he was known as the "Pig Whisperer." He's an animal lover and enjoys dogs, music, and everything about rural Missouri - except for the cold :P
I usually make this with ground beef, and I don't use bbq sauce, but I had ground pork thawed and thought, hmmm, let's try something different!
So glad I did! This is my new favorite way to make this. Super quick and simple.
I remember the first time I had Manwich. I thought to myself; this isn't sloppy joe! 😂
That's because I had grown up on my mom's homemade sloppy joes!
I asked her to share her easy recipe. Here it is!
When we were younger, my brother would make this and call it sloppy Kyle 🤦♀️
