Our animals are fed a natural pasture based diet. They eat grass for at least 3 seasons and, in winter, as the grass dies back they are fed dried grasses such as hay.
We supplement this diet as needed with a certified Non-GMO grain. It is a whole bean grain with corn and roasted soy added. There are also fruits and seasonal items such as pumpkins added. Our pigs are NEVER given post-consumer food such as bakery waste.
In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasture-based diets also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat, eggs, and dairy products that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms.
To help increase animal vigor we raise a variety of breeds. Our chickens are Cornish Rocks and Red Stars. Our ducks are Pekin, White Hybrid and Golden 300s. The pigs we raise are Yorkshires, Old Spots, Large Blacks, Tamworths, and Berkshires. Our cows are Red Devons, Herefords, Red Angus, and Black Baldies.
