Organic farming brings farm practice back to the essentials; it's purity from the first step onward. For a conventional farm to become certified organic, it must first pass through a three-year transitional phase. The land, the livestock and the crops need to adjust from conventional farming practices, and all of the chemicals and fertilizers need to work their way out of the environment.

In the meantime, organic farmers have to keep meticulous records of their progress, and manage the farm responsibly and in accordance with sustainable, earth-and-animal friendly farming practices.

 

Cows are provided with care and attention to promote health and meet their behavioral needs, they enjoy a very content life. From May to October they have access to outdoor pasture for grazing, exercising and enjoying the sunshine. Through the remainder of the year, they are in the pasture as often as weather permits.

During Fall & Winter months they are fed a minimum of 60% grass/hay which is supplemented as required with organic grain such as soy, barley, oat, corn, and wheat. During the Summer the percentage of grass is much higher because the cows are spending longer amounts of time in the pasture.
