Actually, before you browse pictures, there is one thing to say. Sometimes, it's hard to look at the pictures knowing this is something you will eventually eat. Instead of feeling bad about that, we have learned to feel incredibly thankful to animals for providing us with food. We try not to consume a lot of meat, and try to consume meat that has been raised in the healthiest, and most respectful way possible. So keep that in mind as you look at these beautiful animals - and say a little thanks!
Chickens: These are cornish cross chickens, raised for meat- they take about 8 weeks and are allowed to run around and free-range. They usually wander a bit during the day, and then stick together like birds of a feather at night. The shelter is moved daily so the chickens have a new clean salad bar pasture every day. Our chicken is available every Wednesday at our house.
These little piggies are out on full pasture now and will be ready to harvest over the next few months. Nothing is better than local, heritage breed pork that was raised on pasture. Mmmmmmmmmmhh!!!!! Hope you enjoyed!
