Just about every animal sold by our farm was born and raised right here. The few exceptions include retired breeding stock.
Animals are rotated to fresh forages or pasture regularly. Cattle, goats, and sheep are moved daily to weekly depending on the needs of the particular pasture being grazed and the availability of water in that location.
Chickens, goats and sheep generally follow the cattle in the rotation.
We mix our own pig feed. Soy is not a part of the mix.
Our grassfed cattle and sheep are raised on grass and other forages available in our pastures. They are supplemented with hay in the winter months and year-round with free choice minerals.
Our animals are never fed antibiotics. Antibiotics are only administered to animals who need it to treat injury or infection. We believe occasional antibiotic use is necessary for humane treatment and comfort of our livestock.
None of our livestock ever receive steroids or hormones for any reason.
Our cattle and sheep are born and raised on pasture. They eat only grasses and other forages growing in those pastures and hay that we purchase from other farms.
