We started Heritage Hills Farmstead in 2017 with one thing in mind - to extend our family's path to health by going back to the way things used to be done - living sustainably off the land.
What exactly are we doing differently?
We aren't just free feeding our animals. If someone was bringing you every meal, would you want to get up and do it yourself? Maybe, but not the majority of time. Same goes for animals. If we were to provide feed all the time, our animals would forage a little, but eat 99% feed. Here's why our meat is different, we try to get as close to 50/50 feed to forage ratio as possible. Making for a much tastier and healthful meat.
Why are we choosing to feed soy free, corn free feed? Mass produced livestock uses these two products for two reasons: they are cheap and they give a quick weight gain. We do NOT feed our animals any corn or soy. Corn and soy change the lipid profile of the animal. This basically means that the fats from corn and soy fed animals are bad for our human bodies to consume. We want our animals to have more vitamin E, CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) and omega-3 fatty acids to name a few.
Unlike the meat from corn and soy fed animals, our meat is actually good for our body.
Let us share the best sources of meats, eggs, & other sustainable products of nature with your family. You won't believe the difference!
Come by the farmstead & you'll find our animals grazing on pasture, foraging in the woods, or maybe even drinking water from a flowing creek on the property.
All in all, we are in the business of raising free and happy animals with NONE of the following:
- GMO products
Instead, they're getting loads of sunshine, green grass, and all the other good stuff that the Earth has to offer.
Think of it this way - When animals live as close to the wild as possible, they provide us with a product that goes beyond the term "organic."
