Grass Fed Beef
Come visit the farm and you will see cattle grazing happily in the pasture. They are given grass in the summer and supplemented with hay in the winter and free choice cattle minerals year-round. Sometimes we need to entice them to come when called for herd health checks, loading, and transfer from one pasture to another. In those instances, we use feed made from the soybean hull.
Cattle are just like sheep, goats, and children in that they occasionally find the weakness in the fence and go exploring. It is those instances that we have no control over what they eat. (Hopefully not our tomato plants…again).
Our free-range hogs are raised where they have plenty of room to eat, sleep, and take their favorite mud baths. We have a local miller, Big Springs Mill (Elliston, VA) make our non-GMO hog feed. And the hogs love it. (That said, if we run out of feed on Friday and the mill cannot make more non-GMO feed until Monday, we will feed the closest feed we can get until then. We will not let animals go hungry just to be able to say we are exclusively non-GMO).
Sheep / Goats
Sheep and goats graze the pasture, eat hay, are offered free choice sheep minerals, and are supplemented with feed made from the hull of the soybean. Animals are like children. They sometimes get into things they should not. Once they sneaked into the greenhouse and ate all our tomato plants right out of the cups. One day they sneaked into the feed room and ate some horse feed. Neither is ideal. We cannot guarantee everything a lamb or goat may have eaten in its lifetime because we do not keep them caged where they can only have what we give them but allow them the freedom to live happily and make their own choices. But we do our best to see they eat healthily, live happily (and stay out of the greenhouse).
Chickens and turkeys free-range eat bugs and do what birds do. They are supplemented with non-GMO feed made by our local mill, Big Springs Mill (Elliston, VA). As with all our animals, if they have the freedom to range, they also have the freedom to choose what they eat.
Eggs are produced from pastured chickens. The coop door opens in the morning, and they go out when and where they want. Doing what chickens do all day long.
