  • 100% Grass-fed and Finished (no grains)

    20190609_165240.jpg

    Our ruminant animals (grass-fed beef) are rotated to new fresh pasture daily during the midwest grazing seasons. We use a regenerative practice called rotational grazing that allows the land to rest and revitalize to ensure the grasses are vibrant, healthy, and full of nutrients for our cattle to graze when they return to that pasture again in season.  

    In the winter, we practice stock piling pasture - where we save pasture during the summer for winter grazing. We also make hay from our pastures during the summer to supplement during the winter to make sure our cattle get the necessary nutrients to maintain good health during the cold midwest winters. We NEVER feed grains or grain by products in their diet. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and finished. The only supplement we offer our cattle are free choice minerals, salt, and garlic which a common organic practice to help maintain their immune system and health. 

    Our grass-fed and finished beef is more nutritious, richer in flavor, and has a healthier fat profile that grain-fed beef.

  • Aged 12-14 Days

    Most commercial processors age their beef for maybe a few days before cutting the carcass for efficiency. One great benefit about our beef is we age it for 12-14 days. The extra time helps to tenderize the beef and make it better tasting!

  • Gluten Free

    Celiac disease is an immune disease in which people can't eat gluten because it will damage their small intestine. If you have celiac disease and eat foods with gluten, your immune system responds by damaging the small intestine. Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, and barley. All of our meats will contain NO gluten.

  • Humanely Raised/Slaughtered

    Screenshot-2024-06-16-at-5.22.39-AM.png


    All our animals are slaughtered at a local family owned butcher facility that is USDA inspected. They take the slaughtering process serious and follow all the proper procedures to ensure the animal is handled calmly and humanely killed with a painless death.  

    Our USDA butcher has a government official there watching the whole process to ensure the worker follows the humane guidelines. Temple Grandin is responsible for helping to develop a lot of the humane guidelines making sure the livestock are comfortable through the whole process and get a quick painless death. Please research temple Grandin and her work as she is an incredible farmer that improved the slaughter process to be very humane. 

    As a Christian family farm, we ensure that all our livestock have a great life and show them the utmost respect throughout as God's creatures. We believe this should continue all the way from birth to death. We have a zero tolerance for animal abuse here at our farm.

  • No animal by-products

    Animals are never fed animal-by products:

    Our pigs and chickens are never supplemented with animal by products. They only eat a natural diet of GMO-free grains and our regenerative pastures. 

    Our cattle are only fed grasses as they receive all the nutrition they need in our regenerative pastures. Therefore there's no funny business of cows eating cows as that's how mad cow disease started.

  • No Antibiotics or Drugs

    Animals are never fed antibiotics or drugs. We never feed antibiotics or like kind products that are so commonly fed in livestock operations routinely today. We don't liberally administer antibiotics to the animals like the industrial agriculture does, unless they are in a life threatening situation in which our veterinarian recommends to do so. We always look to homeopathic organic treatments as our first option. If an animal does need to be treated to prevent death, we double the withdraw period that is recommended from the veterinarian before harvest. We almost never have this situation, because the animals live in such a healthy, natural environment and therefore rarely get sick. We do feel it is ethical and the right thing to treat an animal with an antibiotic if necessary to prevent death.

  • No hormones or steroids

    Our animals are never fed or injected with steroids or hormones. 

    We take the slow, natural, growth with all our livestock. 

    Unfortunately, the industrial agriculture model has adopted growth promotants like "Paylean" in the pork industry or "Implants" in the beef industry that all help push fast growth in the livestock to improve profits.

    We take a firm stance against such products and never administer or feed any sorta of sterioids or hormones to increase growth rates.

  • No MSG

    Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is a flavor enhancer commonly added to food. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has classified MSG as a food ingredient that's "generally recognized as safe," but its use remains controversial. We choose to not use it because we want to keep our meats all natural.

  • Pasture Raised

    The animals are always are on pasture during grazing season. Due to Midwest winter weather, animals are moved to shelter areas with feed and ability to roam freely. We feel it is ethical to move the animals shelter to stay warm and dry during cold and snowy seasons.
