What is the difference between Forest-Fed Pork and Pasture-Raised Pork?
Pasture-raised pigs are not always given access to wooded areas. Naturally, pigs need forested areas to thrive on roots, tubers and insects. Forest-fed pork is a longer process and far more superior of a product. The pigs are in their natural dwelling- not in a pen; which allows them to roam freely while also having natural shade & protection.
Is grass-grazed beef the same as 100% grass-finished beef?
Yes, it is some ways. However, we like to give our 100% grass-grazed cattle access to larger pastures allowing them to graze & herd freely as nature intended. In addition to no grains, our animals aren’t given vaccines or hormones. Our beef is also raised on our farmstead, under our watchful eye, 100% of its life. We use a pasture rotational system for quality control and to make sure that the animals have no stress and are able to naturally herd.
With what do you supplement your pastured poultry?
All of our poultry is outside 24 hours each day, 7 days each week on pasture. They get a huge amount of their nutrition from insects, bugs, & grub in the ground, but we also offer them a supplementary, special feed blend that’s exclusively SOY FREE, GRAIN FREE, & CORN FREE. We mix a blend of millet, vitamins and minerals, wild caught fish, and Dematiaceous Earth (DE) to naturally protect against parasitic infections.
What do you feed your pigs?
Naturally, our pigs thrive on roots, native grasses, tubers and insects.They also get in on our soy, corn, & grain free cracked eggs, as well as fruits & veggies from our pesticide, insecticide, chemical free family garden. In addition, we offer them a supplementary, special feed blend that’s exclusively SOY & CORN & GRAIN FREE.
