100% Grass-fed Dexter Beef
Our Dexter steers, a heritage breed originating in Ireland in the 1800s, are calved here in Michigan and fed nothing but grass – no grain, no sweet feed, nothing that isn’t green and leafy. We use an intensive rotational grazing strategy which makes the best ecological use of our land. The cattle are supplemented with a mix of organic kelp meal and sea salt, which they eat at their leisure and gives them needed vitamins and minerals. No antibiotics, no hormones, no medications, no insecticides. All beef is processed, vacuum-packed in cryogenic wrap, and flash-frozen at Graham's Organics in Rosebush, MI, a USDA-inspected facility. We sell all beef by-the-cut and do not take bulk orders.
We raise our pastured broiler chickens in floorless “chicken tractors”, which are moved daily to a fresh patch of pasture, where they eat the grass, pick the clover, and scratch for bugs. Their feed is 100% organic and non-GMO grains and organic supplements, such as kelp meal and probiotic mix, which is entirely grown and sourced within Michigan. Available by the whole bird or by the cut (breasts, thighs, legs, or wings), and all are shrink-wrapped, frozen, and ready for your kitchen. Livers, gizzards, hearts, necks and feet available by the pound.
Eggs from Organically-Fed Hens
Our free-range flocks (Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, White Rocks, Wyandottes, Aracaunas, and Barred Rocks) are fed - in addition to what they forage in the pastures, trees, and woods - the same feed as our pastured chickens – 100% organic and non-GMO grains and natural supplements. Our hens are truly free-ranged, meaning they could organize an expedition to Canada if they desired. However, they tend to stick around the farm.
