Our Farming Practices
You know the food we eat is the foundation for our health. It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn't have to be a sacrifice to eat well. You don’t have to eat bug protein or imitation meat from some factory somewhere to protect the environment. There is something beautifully logical about respecting the animal that was created to turn grass into nutrition for us and the benefits that it imparts to the soil it grazes.
So let's do what our ancestors did: get outside, get some exercise, and eat real food.
All Farmer's Provisions beef products are raised with the following principals:
Cattle were created to convert the simplest of things — sunlight, rain, soil, and plants — into healthy protein, vitamins, and minerals for us. Our cattle eat only a healthy mix of grasses, legumes, and brassicas and are never fed grain or grain by-products.
Every day that our cattle graze open fields of cover crops and pasture they not only add pounds of nourishing beef, they improve the soil they walk on. Daily rotation to fresh forage mimics natural grazing, which optimizes their nutritional intake and the health of the plants they graze. The cover crops, cattle, and their manure create organic biomass in and on the soil, retaining soil nutrients in place, naturally breaking pest cycles, and building a healthy population of microorganisms in the soil. Ultimately, the integration of cattle on crop land increases nutritional output from the land while simultaneously sequestering carbon and nutrients and decreasing dependence on synthetic chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
From our farm to your family.
The only step between our farm and your family’s dinner table is a local, family-owned butcher. Your beef will come from one farm, not a distributor with unknown sourcing. We appreciate efficiency as much as anyone, but maybe the world has gotten a little carried away with our food system. Put health and sustainability first and know where your food comes from and how it was raised.
Our beef is dry aged for optimal tenderness and flavor. The meat will speak for itself.
