About Us

We are a small family farm dedicated to providing pasture raised meats while in turn using regenerative agricultural practices on our land. We believe that food should be simple and that the proteins you consume should be just that as well, simple. We promise to provide you the full truth behind our products so you know exactly where they are coming from. We never use antibiotics or hormones and all of our animals are processed at a USDA facility.

Growing & Operating Practices

Under rotational grazing, only one portion of pasture is grazed at a time while the remainder of the pasture “rests”. To accomplish this, pastures are subdivided into smaller ares (referred to as paddocks) and live-stock are moved from one paddock to another. Resting grazed paddocks allows forage plants to renew energy reserves, rebuild vigor, deepen their root system, and give long-term maximum production.

Rotational grazing can help improve long-term pasture quality and fertility by favoring desirable pasture species and allowing for even manure distribution. Rotational grazing also can increase the amount of forage harvested per acre over continuous grazing by as much as 2 tons dry matter per acre.

Why we rotationally graze:

Animals in grazing systems are often healthier than animals housed in confinement. Animals have more space and fresh air, reducing their exposure to high levels of microorganisms. Increased freedom for movement enhances physical fitness and decreases opportunity for injuries and abrasions. A healthier herd is more profitable and it allows the option of increasing herd size or improving the herd by selecting animals based on higher milk or meat production and reproductivity.
