Most of our animals are born right on our farm. 85% of our beef is born on our farm in Biglerville and all are pasture raised their whole life. Our herd is 90% purebred Hereford and 10% crossbred Hereford influenced cattle. All females are bred to our purebred Hereford bulls. The beef is pasture raised on a diet of grass, haylage and corn silage (when needed during certain parts of the year). We choose to add a sweet grain to the menu in the last month or so of the finishing process. We choose to do this so that we can put a finishing touch on the fat and flavor of the beef. All of our cattle are on pasture their whole lives. We do not finish in feed lots and we DO NOT USE HORMONES or ANTIBIOTICS as growth stimulants. We are 100% ALL Natural.
100% of the rabbit is born, raised and finished here on the farm too. They are also raised all natural. Our bunnies are right at home in there 8 square foot hutch. This home has an open air, floor to ceiling window covered with wire keep them safe.
