We are a small family farm located in western Oklahoma. We have been inspired by farmers like Joel Salatin, Mark Shepard, Alan Savory, and my dad. Our animals are raised in a beautiful environment with great pastures, shady trees, and fresh clean water. Things are far from perfect here, but I'd have to say our animals live their lives pretty close to harmony. We moved to this piece of land that belongs to my Grandmother and has been in our family since the 1920's. We started out with the four of us in a fifth wheel trailer for the first year and we now live in a lovely straw bale home here on the farm.
We think of ourselves as part farm and part homestead. We do our best to grow as much of our own food as possible and our goal is to grow nutritious food that tastes really good. We have a garden and orchard to go along with our beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and milk. We hope to one day have a variety of fruits for sale as well.
We also partner with my dad to produce some of the best grassfed beef you'll ever taste. He has converted a portion of his farm from cropland back to native prairie grasses. One of the most noblest of tasks a farmer can undertake. He intensely manages his grazing and moves his cattle every 1 to 3 days to ensure that they always have fresh grass. This also protects his pastures from overgrazing and is key to producing great beef.
This is what we mean when we say grassfed beef. Cattle have a specialized digestive system that allow them to efficiently extract nutrients from grass, so that's what we let them do. We have gorgeous angus cows that have been selected through the years to finish well on grass. Our cows are shorter and rounder than the conventional long legged cows. We want our cattle to be fat when they are butchered because the meat will taste better plus the health benefits of grassfed beef fat. Our beef cattle are never kept in confinement or fed grains and are never given hormones or sub-theraputic antibiotics. They spend their entire lives on pasture until their last day.
