The following meats are available wholesale by order. Please note, our Holistic Management farm practices mean our animals are carefully researched, selected and raised personally by us and are naturally, sustainably and humanely grown. We do NOT feed hormones, steroids or antibiotics. We do NOT feed grocery store or expired bakery waste.
Our livestock are pastured outdoors as part of our multi-species intensive rotational grazing program, spring to late fall (until Christmas in 2015!). Even after pasturing season, our animals have full access to the outdoors in roomy paddocks and can do as they wish. Quantity is limited and will vary by season and availability. Please call for current pricing, as this will vary by season and is subject to change without notice. Several breeds we raise are listed on the Slow Foods USA Ark of Taste, and one on the U.K. Ark of Taste.
