OUR BEEF COWS
RUGGED HEARTY OPEN RANGE CATTLE
Our Beef Cattle are a rugged, hearty blend of black Angus crossed cattle. They live on the range of our Greenland pastures all their lives. Mama cows raise their own babes, the new generations learn from their elders. These creatures are 100% Grass Raised, Grass Grazed and Grass Finished. They thrive on what the land sustains them with. In the winter time, during harsh blizzards, cold and heavy snow, they are supplemented with hay blends of Grass and Alfalfa to provide them with extra protein, nourishing vitamins/minerals and extra heat! Beef is generally harvested late fall/early winter, and is sold on the halves or wholes on LIVE weight. Processing is paid separate to the butcher.

WHY PASTURE RAISED HORMONE FREE MEATS
Pasture raised meats contain a far higher level of vital omega-3 fatty acids than beef or pork raised in feedlots. Omega-3s help protect heart cells and other systems in the body from developing stresses that can lead to such conditions as clogged/congested arteries, irregular heart beats or high blood pressure.
One omega-3 fatty acid that is abundant in grass fed dairy products, eggs, and meat is alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA. This specific fat has been found to be present in high levels in the tissues of folks who have survived cancer and who have not suffered the growth of a new tumors.
Pasture raised meat also has a lower amount of fat overall, compared with feedlot raised animals. Thus it is lower in calories, meaning that switching back to the old way of doing things could help win our current battle with obesity.
In relative terms, folks who love to eat fish for the healthy Omega-3 EFA's, would benefit similarly from eating grass-grazed, pasture-raised meats. Think of the grass grazing, pasture browsing livestock, as 'fish above the sea'.
HORMONE FREE HAPPY HOGS
Our hogs originate from a loving, local, Colorado pig family. They are the PRO's in raising piglets and caring for mama sows! We purchase baby piggies just after they are weaned from their mamas. We raise our piggies on milk from our organically natural dairy; then finish them up on Alfalfa, Oats, Barley, Black Oil Sunflower Seed, Flax Sees and Veggies! Our hogs have access to the fresh air and Colorado sunshine, as well as a shelter shed to snuggle and pig pile in the cold winter time.. truly loved, SPOILED PIGGIES! Pork is currently harvested in the springtime, and is sold on the halves or wholes on LIVE weight. Processing is paid separate to the butcher.
