About Us

Dr. Michael and Dr. Susan Detweiler are lovers of life, health, and all pastured goodness from the hand of the Creator. With over 50 years of combined clinical experience, they specialize in helping patients get to the root of their problems.

Together, enabled by the hand of God, they maintain a thriving medical practice in an office adjacent to their rolling pasture. While cows graze and grass grows, they deliver the concepts of free-range wellness to their family, their friends, and their clients locally, and across the US. At the end of each day, their heart-cry echoes the Psalmists: 


“Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!” – Psalm 90:17

At of the first decade of this century, ...
Thoughts on Winter Pastures
I do my best thinking when I’m in my pasture, or sometimes, my most relaxed thinking. Today, surrounded by winter and grey, my thoughts swirled – much like the cold air surrounding me as I thrust my hands in my pockets and walked through the pasture. Over winter, when there’s no snow on the ground, I’ve busied myself with some ...
Good… Better… Best!
My grandmother had a saying that she often repeated, “good better best, never let it rest, your good is better and your better is best.” Now you maybe wondering, how does that apply to our wellness?

What is Nutrient Density?
Nutrient density. I’ve been thinking about that concept a lot for the past couple of weeks. I’ve thought of it in the pasture, when I’m observing my herd. I’ve thought about it in the office while I’ve been treating patients. And I’ve thought about it when I’ve sat down to enjoy homemade meals with my family. To me, nutrient density ...
