Dutch Belted Cattle.
One of our heritage breed, Dutch Belted are known for their high milk fat content and meat. The Dutch Belted are limited in number, however we love the breed and will continue to raise them for both milk and meat. We pasture raise our cows; a truly holistic grazing system. Our fields are rotated for hay and grazing. We rotate our cattle to fresh grass daily. We deploy multi-species grazing techniques and the animals impacts work in direct harmony with nature. We do not give hormones, antibiotics or other chemical treatments to our cows unless the life of the cow is in danger. If this happens, which it hasn't yet, the animal would be taken out of our milk production and/or not processed for meat, the animal is removed from our program.
Red Wattle Swine.
We raise Red Wattle Swine for their ability to thrive in most environments. They are excellent bacon pigs. We find the meat not as fatty as other breeds tend to be. We feed our swine our corn, extra produces, eggs, milk, woodland for nuts, root crops, fruit and pasture areas to root. We provide fresh spring water and make sure they have shade along with a super fun mud hole.
We raise several heritage birds along with more modern birds. We enjoy our Buckeyes, Dominic's, White Rocks, Rhode Island Reds, Australorpes, and White Leg Horn just to name a few breeds we carry. Our chickens, turkeys and pigs are omnivores and obtain most of their nutritional needs from our pasture and woodland. Eating acorns, bugs, grass, fruit and root vegetable however we supplement with Non-GMO and Non-Soy feed custom milled for our farm.
