All of our beef and lamb is 100% grass-fed. They are never fed any grain, animal by products, antibiotics, or injected with growth hormones. We have been practicing Management Intensive Grazing since 1997. It is our goal to care for all of the livestock that we have been blessed with, in as natural and humane a manner as we can.
Our chickens for meat and eggs are also raised on pasture with green grass under their feet as much as the weather in this part of the world allows.
Our hogs are fed grain, but do live outdoors with dirt under their feet, with the opportunity to express their unique characteristics of being pigs. They thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to root in the soft dirt, or to put their nose in a water puddle and blow bubbles. That’s just what they like to do. Starting in March of 2014 we finally found a source for non-GMO hog feed that we started using.
We do not use any petroleum-based pesticides or fertilizers on our pastures. We believe that healthy people, and healthy animals start with healthy plants and a healthy, biologically active, soil community.
We do not sell any meat that we would not feed to our own children.
