How We Do It: In the winter time when we feed hay to the cows, they eat and lounge on bedding of old hay and straw. This bedding ferments in the anaerobic conditions created by the heavy cows walking on it. Added corn ferments and offers a tasty salary for pigs which are turned onto the bedding when the cows go out to pasture.
The pigs turn and aerate the bedding until oxygenation turns the entire deep bedding into a compost pile, which is the backbone of the farm’s fertility program. During the summer and fall, the pigs are in special savannah pastures rotated every few days with electric fence.
We want you to see and know that your food is raised just how we say it is. Come on out for a visit. See the animals... Outside... On Pasture... Raised the old school way!
