Our Meat & Eggs
“As a person that has seen more lamb in her life than she would ever want to admit, yours was the best.” – B.W.
Not only is it delicious, but it’s healthy too!
By choosing to eat meat and eggs from animals raised on pasture, you are choosing the healthiest food possible!
Research shows that meat from pasture-raised animals has less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol and calories than meat from confinement-raised animals. It also has more vitamin E, vitamin C and health-promoting fats such as omega-3 fatty acids.
it’s more than just healthy food!
By supporting farms that raise animals on pasture, you are helping to improve animal welfare, fighting environmental degradation and contributing directly to small-scale farmers’ and ranchers’ livelihoods.
How We Raise Our Animals
You are what you eat eats!
we do not spray chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides on our farm.
We take care to ensure our animals are eating the cleanest and most nutritous feed possible.
We let our animals grow slowly, at a natural rate, avoiding unnecessary use of hormones and medications.
By managing our animals in a way that improves the soil’s fertility over time we are able to produce an abundance of healthy foods while continually increasing the productiveness and health of our land.
Our ewes give birth to their lambs in the spring of every year. The ewes and lambs graze our pastures during the summer and fall. We continually monitor the grass and rotate the flock to a new area of pasture when necessary. By moving the flock at regular intervals, we ensure they are always grazing the highest quality grass to optimize flock health and lamb growth. We have livestock guardian dogs that are bonded to the flock and stay with the sheep year-round. They patrol our pastures and protect the sheep from predators. We wean our lambs in the fall and separate them into different groups depending on age and breed. We select breeding stock replacements, sale ewelambs, sale ramlambs and marketable freezer lambs based on different criteria such as growth rate, litter size, bloodline, conformation and more.
Our laying hens are moved around our pastures in our mobile chicken coop that we call the eggmobile! We keep them contained to an area by surrounding the eggmobile with an electric netting fence. The fence ensures they don’t stray too far from the rest of the flock, and that they are safe from predators such as coyotes, foxes and dogs. Our eggs have very brightly coloured yolks and wonderful flavour because the chickens’ diet consists of unlimited grass and insects along with free-choice grain and minerals.
