Why do we raise grass-fed and finished cattle?
Simply put, it is the best for our cattle, and it is the best for our land. Every farm has a different set of circumstances that they must make the best of: their animals, their land base, their climate, and their natural resources. These variables can differ drastically depending on geography, and dictate how a farmer chooses to raise their animals in the best way possible for their situation. On our farm we are lucky to have fertile soil, and an abundance of rich grasslands that makes this a sustainable method of raising animals. Our cattle not only survive, they thrive in our grass based system, and natural grazing environment, and the land also reaps the benefits of this age-old design.
