Our livestock do not receive hormones, medicated feed or rendered by-products. The feed provided to the chickens and hogs is CERTIFIED ORGANIC by M.O.S.A. In addition, the chickens and pigs consume respectable amounts of our organic forage.
Our Grassfed beeves are raised on their mother’s milk and pasture for the first 7-8 months before weaning onto a winter diet of hay and organic mineral. In spring the beeves are then finished exclusively on our rotationally-grazed pastures. The hay we make is organic however we must also purchase hay, some of which is not organic. Unlike row crops, purchased hay is never sprayed with herbicides or pesticides. As we work towards the goal of obtaining more land for making hay, we expect to diminish purchased hay accordingly.
Our soil fertility is enhanced via direct animal impact as well as our own compost. Mineral consists of Icelantic Kelp, Redmond salt, rock mineral and microbials.
We do not use the standards of diesel fuel nor toxic insecticides for fly control.
