“We’re a small family farm that raises Animal-Welfare-Approved and Grass-fed certified sheep and goats.”

We love our animals and treating them ethically is our greatest priority.  We name them; we pet them; we hand-feed them cantaloupe.  They have never been given any type of hormones, steroids, or antibiotics, and their pastures have never been sprayed, planted, or treated. They have a valley of woods to bed down in, and their water comes from our well.  It is important for us to know exactly what we’re eating, and we believe our customers feel the same way.  There is a great deal of pride that goes along with offering a product that is not only delicious and healthy, but also the highest quality of meat possible.  We think it’s the way things should be.
