Beef and Pork info

 

How we raise our cattle and pigs

Cattle:

    We purchase our calves as soon as they are weaned from their mothers and then we raise them for the next 12 - 18 months. They are fed unlimited amounts of hay and clover along with our own organic grain including: oats, corn and triticale; Redmond natural salt and minerals to meet their nutrient requirements.  Our cattle are never locked in a barn, instead they have their own outdoor yards that allow them plenty of space.

Pigs:

 Our pigs are purchased as babies from a local farm, and then raised on our farm until they reach approximately 240-260 lbs. live weight. They are fed a 100% organic diet comprised of our own grains, as well as certified organic fruits and vegetables from our farm.

How we sell our cattle and pigs
