Our lambs and goats are born and raised on environmentally sustainable pastures in Northwest Wisconsin. The animals are pasture-raised and fed only the highest-quality dried forage during the winter months. We supplement our growing lambs and pregnant ewes with hydroponically grown sprouts during this period.
Our lamb and goat meat products have never been given antibiotics, growth hormones, fed animal byproducts or irradiated (the application of ionizing radiation to food). We follow sustainable and rotational grazing practices that enhance the growth of native plant species while providing naturally fertilized and nutrient-rich fields.
Sheep are friends of the earth and instinctively manage the land they graze. Grazing sheep can thin smothering overgrowth, eat noxious weeds dangerous to other livestock, help nourish wildlife by encouraging the growth of healthy forage, and recycle vital nutrients back into the soil. Sheep are a safe, natural and effective alternative to chemicals.
A major benefit of raising livestock on pasture is that they have the freedom to express their natural behavior and as a result are healthier and healthier for you. Compared to feedlot meats, meat from grass fed animals has lower cholesterol, less total fat, and a healthier fat that includes higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). Nutrition tests have also found more vitamin E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. For more nutrition information on grass fed meats check out the Eat Wild website.
