Frequently Asked Questions
Are you organic?
While we use organic methods, we are not certified organic so cannot make the claim. We choose not to be because the requirements to be organic would require us to use certain vaccines and methods that are against our practices for truly clean meat and feel defeat the purpose of the certification.
Are you grass-fed/grass-finished?
YES! There are many terms out there denoting the diet of the animal, and they can be confusing. Read this blog post to learn the differences!
Do you use grain?
All of our herbivore animals (cows and sheep) are fed a pasture-only diet, no grains. You can read about our daily practices by clicking HERE. Our omnivore animals (pigs, chickens, turkeys) receive a corn/soy-free supplement to meet their additional protein type needs. You can read more about our pastured pork HERE.
Do you ship?
YES! To the main 48 states (sorry Hawaii and Alaska!) Orders are accepted until Monday at 11:59 pm for Wednesday shipping. Anything after Monday at 11:59 pm will be shipped the NEXT Wednesday.
Your meat order is shipped frozen. It is packed in a thicker cardboard box and an insulated liner. Dry ice is also packed to help ensure your meats arrive frozen.
Orders are shipped every Wednesday and will arrive on Thursday or Friday the same week at your doorstep.
Please note that we use UPS, so your package will be left where ever they deliver to at your house. To ensure your order's safety, we recommend that someone be present to receive it when it arrives.
We ship either next day air or 1-2 ground shipping depending on your distance.
We take great care to ensure that your meats arrive frozen by using high-quality materials such as thicker cardboard boxes, quality liners, and dry ice. We recommend ordering a minimum of 8 lbs to ensure your meats arrive frozen. Anything less than that we cannot ensure they will be frozen or cold and will not replace those items.
Please note that there can be delays in shipping and that we cannot guarantee that your meats will arrive frozen. If you have any concerns or questions, please don't hesitate to contact us directly.
Do you use hormones, chemicals or other synthetics?
We do not! We take great care to rely on our animal and pasture management to keep our animals healthy and thriving. We use natural materials to keep their bodies balanced, making them not good hosts for parasites and diseases. We use minerals, clay, apple cider vinegar, and natural soda to keep their PH alkaline. this helps them gain better, repel pests, and produce a much more flavorful, tender, and nutrient dense product.
What is regenerative farming?
Regenerative farming has become a buzzword in recent years, and we're proud to be a part of this movement. At its core, regenerative farming is all about focusing on soil health. By restoring and maintaining healthy soil, we can create a thriving ecosystem on our farm.
To achieve this, we rotate our animals through the pastures, mimicking nature and not allowing them to stay in one area for too long. This gives the ground and forage time to rest and recover, ultimately leading to a stronger, healthier soil.
We believe that each animal plays a vital role in the health of our soil and ecosystem. By treating our animals with care and respect, we can create a sustainable and regenerative system that benefits everyone involved. Ultimately, the health of the soil is reflected in the quality of the food we produce.
We're committed to using regenerative farming practices to create a healthier and more sustainable future for our farm and our community.
