The diet of our grass-fed and finished animals consists of freshly grazed pasture and stored grasses (hay). They are finished all the way through on grass, no grains are given. Free-choice mineral supplementations may also be given as needed.
Hormones or steroids are never administered to any of our animals. (The FDA does not allow the use of hormones or antibiotics in the production of pork or poultry.)
Our natural production practices eliminates the need for sub therapeutic (daily fed low level dose) medications that are commonly used in confinement production systems. However, in certain cases to prevent animals from death or suffering we do allow for limited use of therapeutic (spot treatment) medication. In such cases, the animals are removed from our meat program. We feel that this exception is only practical to ensure wise stewardship practices and ethical treatment of our livestock.
