Grass-fed Beef

100% Grassfed Beef

Our cattle have been raised on grass their entire life. They have been gently raised and handled, and rotationally grazed, which provides excellent environmental benefit to the land and nutrition to the cows. Rotational grazing is a powerful land management tool that can help restore pasture. Our animals enjoy an amazing salad bar of green grasses to graze on and are moved regularly to fresh pasture based on the stage of the forage. The land benefits from the livestock manure and trampling in of seed, while also being allowed time to grow back to a healthy length before being grazed again. 

We have been looking forward to welcoming cattle to the land since we started the farm and it feels great to have them grazing the grassy hills. They enjoy a peaceful and calm environment where they can do all the things cows like to do!   

Our cattle are antibiotic and hormone free. Grass-fed beef is packed with nutrition, heart healthy omega-3’s, and conjugated linoleic acid. 

We will be selling directly, in whole beef, halves and quarters (split-halves). Order forms are accessible on our home page. They are in Google Forms format for your convenience. If this format does not work for you, please let us know and we will be happy to take your order another way. 

 
 

Heritage Free-Range Eggs

In summer of 2016, we brought home a brood of day-old heritage chicks that have now grown into roosters and egg-laying hens with a whole lot of personality. We have Buff Orpingtons, Ameraucanas, Speckled Sussex, and Buff Brahmas. They lay a beautiful array of colored eggs … green, blue, and shades of brown and cream. Fed certified organic feed with access to water, grit and a calcium supplement, they also forage freely outside and get lots of organically grown vegetables and fruit in season.

During the winter, they live in a roomy winter shelter with wood-chip bedding inside, and a huge enclosed yard outside, and are able to move freely in and out as they please through a chicken door, unless it is extremely cold. In that case, we leave them inside to keep them warm and their water from freezing. We also close them into their chicken house at night where they prefer to roost for extra warmth and predator protection.

During the warmer months, our chickens roost at night in a moveable “chick-shaw” (a shelter that can be moved on two wheels like a rickshaw), and during the day, they roam within a moveable electric fence for predator protection, which we relocate to fresh grass, pasture, or dormant garden patches.

These birds bring much delight to our farm. As of November 2016 they also bring us delicious free-range eggs, which are now for sale as available.
