Our Farm values
Our mission is to raise grass-fed beef, chicken, pork and turkey for our customers…
We want to be your source for superior, nutrient-dense animal products that are healthy and flavorful. To do this, we give our animals the life they deserve, roaming their natural environment and enjoying their natural diet.
At our farm we are always asking ourselves:
- How can we make our food better?
- How can we improve our food’s quality?
- How can we improve our farm from an environmental standpoint?
The answers are what drive our production process and determine our Farm Values:
All of our animals have access to fresh grass daily. We rotate them to new pastures on a regular basis. This practice helps build soil, improve soil fertility, and produces nutritionally superior meat, all while freeing us from having to use harsh chemicals like glyphosate (Roundup).
Our chickens, turkeys and pigs require some grain feed. These animals receive high-quality, non-GMO grains supplemented with a probiotic and mineral blend, in addition to being given daily access to fresh grass. Our beef is 100% grass fed.

At Freedom Valley Farm, we value the lives of our animals. We believe they deserve to live quality lives, outside in the fresh air and sun shine, with enough space for each animal to thrive! This way, they can do what they naturally like to do – graze and peck and root! This environment allows them to be healthy and to enjoy their lives. Not only is this the right thing to do for the animals, but it also produces the highest quality meats!
As you probably know, not all farms let you see the way the animals live or what they are fed. That’s not us! We want you to come to the farm and see the animals. We are 100% transparent about how we raise these animals and if you ever have any questions, please ask us!

Quality of Life
We believe that animals should be treated with great respect, and that they deserve to live a life where they are content and comfortable. They should be doing the things they were meant to do, and enjoying the diet that makes them healthy and happy.
While we do raise animals for food, we make it our purpose to provide them with an amazing life. Come out to the farm where you can see all of our animals, and have some fun watching how much they enjoy their life. There’s something special about watching animals live as they were meant to be!
