ABOUT OUR ANIMALS

Pastured Beef, Pork, Poultry and Lamb

Our livestock management philosophy is simple. Tender meat is directly related to the amount of time any animal stays in one specific area. We operate on a rigid pasture rotation to allow the animals to consume as much fresh green growth as possible. Quickly moving them to a new area allows the forage to rest and grow. Our pastures consist of alfalfa, crimson clover and other grasses. In the fall, the hogs are moved into hardwood forest to feed from acorns and other forage. Although the majority of their diet is provided by grazing in the pasture and forest, we do supplement with several different grains and soy — always hormone-, antibiotic- and steroid-free.
