Pasture Raised & Grazed
On the farm one of the most important decisions we make every day is how we keep our animals safe and comfortable. Our focus is for all our animals to have space to roam and to be able to enjoy their natural environment. We provide each individual species with different outdoor access opportunities while also supplying housing that keeps them clean, safe from predators and the elements, and comfortable in all temperatures.
Our sheep, cattle, and meat poultry enjoy living on lush pasture and are rotated through fields as seasons and weather allow. They are rotationally grazed through different sections of pasture on specified schedules depending on their species, care plans, optimal animal health and responsible pasture management.
Our egg laying hens and hogs are provided ample outdoor access and their housing is made specifically for their species and preferences. Our new hog barn currently being constructed is designed with different areas for different age animals as well as "curtain" sides that roll up and down for maximum air flow as weather permits. Although our hens usually prefer the shade and predator protection of their hen house where we keep their fresh water and food, they have outdoor space to roam, dust bathe, search for bug snacks, and soak up some sunshine in warmer months.
