grass-fed: Why we are unique
We are committed to getting the most nutrition out of our products (-or- grass-fed beef, lamb, chicken, pork, eggs, and produce): from soil testing in our pastures, greenhouses, and gardens, to the health and well-being of our animals. We are constantly researching the latest information, having the experts out to our ranch to evaluate our operation, and implementing what we have learned.
We are also involved with the Real Food Campaign and their efforts to make food as healing as medicine.
What we are doing:
