Our Farming Practices

Pasture Based System 

Our pastures are free from pesticides and commercial fertilizers; we use organic practices.

  • Grass fed beef:

      Cows are grazed on grass and intensively managed;  depending on the time of year they are moved daily or sometimes multiple times a day.  When the pastures are snow covered or frozen down, cattle are only fed grasses, hays, and baled cover crop.  No grain ever.
  • Pasture raised hogs:

      are rotated on their pasture and are free of crates.  Their supplemental feed is non-GMO and corn free.  We grow and harvest their ration right here on the farm; peas, triticale, lentils, barley, and then add charcoal and minerals.
  • Pasture raised eggs:

      Laying hens are on the same pasture as the cows following behind them as often as possible.  During the spring, summer, and fall the hens are out on our three, mobile houses that we move daily to fresh grass.  In the winter, they go to our "chicken palace", a large hoop house with a wood chip floor and access to go out the back door to scratch around and get fresh air.
  • Mobile pasture raised poultry:

      Broilers and turkeys are rotated on fresh pasture daily, with a non-GMO, soy free ration.  We only raise birds for meat when the grasses are available.  The pastures take a rest in winter.

No-till Farming

  • We try to disturb the soil as little as possible.   We believe that what is happening below the ground is just as important as what is happening above. We try to do everything that we can to feed our soil. This is accomplished using no-till practices.

Low Carbon Footprint

    • Animals are fed from plants grown on the farm
    • Many producers have to buy feed from other farmers, using extra fossil fuel to haul the feed to and from farm.
    • All Feed is ground/made on farm

    Mineral Rich

    • We supplement our animals with Redmond Salt and Clay, this adds minerals to help keep them healthier.
    • We also supplement the land with the same minerals helping the grass and other plants grow stronger.

    Non-GMO and Soy Free

    • Seed and plant diversity has started to dwindle, we want to help keep the diversity alive.
    • We also take care in not giving our animals soy, a major contributor to human allergies

    Hormone/Antibiotic Free

    • We don't believe in low doses of antibiotics to help animals gain weight faster
    • We do not administer mRNA vaccines. Furthermore, we have no plans to adopt mRNA vaccines and intend to continue this policy.

    Humanely Raised, Harvested, and Traceable

    • We breed for docile animals, this leads to less stress for animals and humans 
    • Animals are raised in small batches, free from confinement
    • Each animal is harvested one at a time, the old fashioned way at local establishments, and inspected by the USDA
    • Care is taken in each cut and package
    • Unlike large kill facilities, each package of meat we sell, can be traced back to a single animal
