“And God said, ‘See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. Also to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food; and it was so.” Genesis 1:29-30
We are a small family farm located in Frankford Township in scenic Sussex County, New Jersey raising grass-fed beef, chicken, lamb and pork, as well as eggs.
Our farm began as a 4-H project for our children. We enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with our children as they (and we) learned to care for these wonderful creatures that God entrusted to our care.
The more we learned about the conventional methods by which most livestock are raised, the more convinced we became that we wanted our animals to be raised as God intended - eating grass as the basis of their diet.
We do not give our animals steroids, growth hormones, nor sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics. Raising the animals on pasture is not only good for their diet, but is also the way they were intended to be raised. Their manure is directly applied to the fields by the animals themselves, thus fertilizing the pastures.
Whether raising a chicken or steer, we believe that the quality of the animals' lives is reflected in the quality of the food. The emphasis is on traditional farming methods focusing on small herds, animal diversity, natural ingredients and grazing as part of growing movement back towards environmentally friendly agriculture.
As the years have passed, we continue to remember that we are stewards of the land and animals God has blessed us with. We thank all our customers for the privilege of providing you with best quality of meat we can raise.
