Our cattle are grass-fed from birth. That means they eat only grass (or hay in the winter), water, and a few all-natural supplements such as salt and kelp meal. They are fed no grain whatsoever.
Our animals are never given antibiotics in their ration to keep them well. We don't have to because our animals are raised as nature intended--on the pasture and in the sunshine, not cooped up in large animal feeding facilities like conventional farms. On very rare occasions, an animal will require an antibiotic to recover from an illness or an injury (we won't let an animal suffer needlessly), generally when they are young. This gives plenty of time for the antibiotics to leave their system before they are processed.
Conventional farms pump their livestock full of artificial growth hormones to make the animals grow faster. But not at Hoosier Heritage Farm. It takes a little longer for our animals to achieve market weight, but it the extra flavor and texture is worth it!
Our lambs are raised on pasture, and are fed a non-GMO grain ration to supplement their grass and hay diet.
This product contains no MSG (monosodium glutamate). With food as good as this, you don't need a flavor enhancer!
These animals are raised in pastures and/or in the woods, where they get all of the natural grain, grass, and mud wallows they want.
These animals were raised on pasture, where they are moved periodically to a fresh new paddock of lush grasses. This helps the pasture to regenerate quickly and the animal to have continuous access to high-quality forage. In the winter, animals eat hay when no pasture is available.
Our grain-finished beef are raised on pasture and hay. A few months before processing, their feed is augmented with non-GMO grains, which helps develop a wonderful marbling. If you prefer the taste and texture of grain-fed beef, you can be confident in this clean meat, with no GMOs, no antibiotics, and no artificial growth hormones.
Hoosier Heritage Farm uses abattoirs that are inspected by the USDA. This ensures the safety and wholesomeness of meat and poultry products, and ensures that they are accurately labeled. It also verifies compliance with the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act for livestock.
