Do your animals get plenty of wild food to eat?
Our cattle are 100% grass-fed, which means their diet consists of freshly grazed pasture and stored grasses like hay. Free-choice minerals and salt supplementations are given to our cattle as needed.
Our pigs are moved through our forest where they have a constant supply of foliage, nuts, roots and grubs to eat.
Similarly, our egg layers and broiler chickens are moved to fresh pasture. This mirrors the chicken’s natural desire to roam, and also provides them with a natural and plentiful diet of bugs and fresh grasses on which to graze.
Our sheep are rotated across our pastures behind our cows, eating foliage and underbrush 10 months out of the year. The two months before lambing season starts, they are given a balanced diet of hay, grass and a small quantity of grain as a treat and for their health before lambing. Minerals and salt supplementations are given to our sheep as needed.
