Grass fed, grass finished. Our beef is all-natural and enjoys a quality of life second to none...in fact, they might even be considered a bit spoiled, as they get catered to quite a bit!
Here's a few facts about grass fed beef:
Naturally raised meat has:
Our "Herd Sire" is named "Goldie". He's a full Devon and came to us already named from Thistle Hill farm in northern Virginia.
Our broilers are fed a diet of non-gmo feed (i.e. - free of genetic modification) along with seeds, bugs and grass every day. They have unlimited access to fresh air and sunshine and are moved regularly to a fresh area to roam, eat and rest in.
Here's some of the health benefits based on lab tests comparing pastured poultry to regular confinement house poultry commonly found in stores:
Pastured broilers are higher in omega-3s
Our hens have unlimited access to bugs, seeds and grass. Research shows that pastured hen eggs are far more nutritious than those hens that are factory confined. Grass is a rich source of omega-3s.
Pastured eggs have:
We are currently producing in excess of 60 dozen eggs a week and they are available for sale for $4.00 per dozen.
Here's some shots of our birds and their mobile home - aka the Egg Mobile - as well as a sampling of other shots of our pastured broilers and heritage birds. A few brooder shots are thrown in for good measure.
Like our beef & chicken we also raise our pork naturally. They begin their time on our farm in a barn while they gain wait and get to a point where they can defend themselves against unwanted visitors. Once they get to about 75 pounds we move them out to a section of pasture - give them some shelter, food and water and let them enjoy themselves!
We have a back pasture where they are currently roaming. They get a new section periodically so they don't over work any one area. There's a mixture of grasses and shade so they can choose how to spend their day.
Like our chickens we also feed them non-GMO feed and suppliment with a variety of vegetables, eggs, and other tidbits they find appealing. We never use growth hormones, antibiotics or other synthetic elements when raising our pork.
