100% Grass Fed Beef
Our beef cows are raised and finished on grass forages, they are not fed any grain. They are moved to fresh grass paddocks frequently, this not only increases sanitation by moving them away from yesterday’s droppings, but also helps build soil and grass productivity. They are fed grass hay during the winter. We also don’t use any antibiotics, vaccines or added hormones.
By keeping our cows on grass and always on the move, we stray far from the conventional methods of raising beef animals, which involves confined spaces and lots of grain for their feed.

Behind the cows come the chickens. We house them in open bottom shelters. Within these shelters, the chickens have constant access to fresh grass, bugs
Our birds have free access to soy-free non-GMO feed. But they also gather a considerable part of their diet from forage and insects. We move their shelters to fresh grass daily, allowing the birds to explore a new piece of pasture. This also gives them a fresh bed of grass each night.
Compare this to how industrial poultry is raised, where birds are confined, tightly packed and never see the light of day. Beyond that, industrial birds are fed antibiotic-laced feed and require vaccinations–just to survive.
We believe there is a much better way, for the birds and for us. We process our chickens on
Buy Pastured Chicken
Our farm also offers chicken in bulk multiple times throughout the year. We offer a nice discount on these chickens, as they don’t take up storage space on our end, as you are picking the chicken soon after it is processed. You get to select the day you want to pick up your chicken from our available dates. We also offer an even deeper discount when you order 12 or more chickens at a time.
Pre-ordered Chicken: $5.49/lb. Order 12 or more chickens and your price will be $4.99/lb.
We at times also offer stewing hens, which are laying hens that have done their time. They are of course much more lean than a meat chicken, but are full of rich yellow fat, which makes them great for soups and bone broths. You can check on their availability here.
Pigs are simply amazing creatures to observe as they use their large plow-like snouts to forage. The old saying is true, pigs will eat anything! Acorns, berries, grass, roots, vegetable scraps, and even bugs and grubs.
To take advantage of this amazing foraging behavior, we run our pigs through partially wooded, partially pasture paddocks. This allows them to take advantage of all the food sources found within these paddocks, moving them to a fresh paddock weekly. They do have access to non-GMO
Our pigs spend their lives outside in the fresh air and sunshine, able to use their plow like snout to dig for roots and acorns to their heart’s delight! This is greatly contrasted by conventional pigs, where they are kept on concrete and metal grates in confinement buildings, where they never have access to fresh air or open space.

They will be processed by Nicks farm in November, and then ready for pickup here at the farm on Tuesday November 22nd. They will be fresh, not frozen.
