Sustainable Farming & Livestock Husbandry

Sustainable farming and animal husbandry refers to techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.

Environmental preservation is achieved because we don’t use toxic chemical pesticides or synthetic fertilizers around our animals, which are pasture raised, protecting biodiversity and fostering the maintenance of healthy local ecosystems. 

Protection of public health comes from raising cattle and hogs without dangerous nontherapeutic antibiotics or arsenic-based growth hormones. It also includes the responsible management of livestock waste to prevent people in our community from exposure to pathogens and nitrates found in animal waste.

Community support is provided by local, sustainable farms like ours bolstering local and regional economies; making healthy, local food options available; and educating the community about responsible farming and livestock husbandry.

Upholding animal welfare comes from livestock husbandry practices that protect the animals' health and wellbeing throughout their life. Raising our cattle on pasture means they move freely, consume a natural diet, and avoid the stress and illness of confinement. All of our beef is humanely raised, humanely slaughtered, and butchered under USDA supervision.
