Grateful Akers is a small family farm focused on self-sufficiency and sustainability. We strive to live off the land with as little human intervention as possible and try to help others do the same. Using closed-loop agriculture and free-range husbandry, we do our best to minimize waste while maximizing quality. We grow our food and raise our animals without pesticides, herbicides, or steroids and restrict our limited use of antibiotics and vaccines to non-food producing livestock. All of our animals are given unrestricted access to a variety of forage so that their daily routine and diet reflect their natural lifestyles as closely as possible. Each animal on our farm is considered a part of the family, and we do all that we can to ensure every one of them lives out a healthy and happy life with us. We wholeheartedly believe that the extra autonomy and attention we give our animals yields better results, and are proud to offer what we consider to be some of the best sheep, honey, and eggs in central Alabama.

We love sharing what we do with others, so please feel free to set up an appointment to visit the farm. We are located halfway between Tuscaloosa and Birmingham, just 2 miles down the road from Tannehill State Park.
