When we say our animals are pasture raised, we truly mean that they live their lives on pasture.
Pasture raised implies this idea but unfortunately most items in the store that say they are “pasture raised” aren’t what you image.
Big companies have co-opted the term and will provide their animals access to a small lot through a small door. However, the animals spend the majority of their lives inside a building (usually in bad conditions).
This is why we believe you should get to know the farm and the people behind your food. How are the animals raised? Do the cows, pigs, chickens, lambs, etc. that you eat get to live happy and content lives? How are they treated? What environment do they grow up on?
The more natural the environment that the animals get to live in (as much time on pasture as possible), the higher quality and more natural the food will be that you eat, and the healthier you will be.
Get to know your farm!
