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 flash-frozen and vacuum-packed in cryogenic wrap in a USDA-inspected facility. We sell all beef by-the-cut and do not take bulk orders.
We raise our dinner chickens in floorless “chicken tractors”, which are moved daily to a fresh slice of pasture, where they eat the grass, pick the clover, scratch for bugs, and chase insects. 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 in bags of pieces (breasts, thighs, legs, or wings), and all are vacuum-packed, frozen, and ready for your kitchen. Other cuts, such as a thigh/leg quarter, and giblets (hearts, livers, gizzards, necks, and feet) are available as a custom pre-order.
Eggs from Organically-Fed Hens
Our free-range flocks (Orpingtons, Rhode Island Reds, White Rocks, 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.
