We pride ourselves on how we care for the animals we raise. Our intent is to let our animals live as nature intended. It may surprise some people, but we only use a barn to house our animal in extreme circumstances.

Unlike the commonly known CAFO operations, we strive to feed and care for our animal as nature intended. Our ruminants are rotationally grazed to keep them is fresh nutritious pasture. Our omnivores are also pastured and fed a mixture of nutritious feed specific to their species and age.

We are the total opposite of a factory CAFO operation. Our animals are outside every day in the fresh air and sunshine.

Most of our products are processed at a local USDA inspected facility. Sometimes we process our poultry on farm. When we have a farm harvest, notice will be communicated on our social media and farm email updates so plans can be made to pick up the fresh poultry.

The all-natural fertilizer, aka compost. We do not apply synthetic chemical fertilizers on our farm. We practice rotational grazing with multiple species, add compost material (carbon) to our pastures to improve soil health and ultimately nutritional benefits to our products.

Not all “weeds” are bad. As we improve our soil health, we also diversify the grasses and legumes in our pastures. We overseed our pastures with grasses and legumes appropriate to species and season to help control weeds. In some cases, we use controlled burns to controlled undesired vegetation. And we also use the old fashioned weed “wacker” to keep grasses and weeds from shorting out our fences.
