After cooking down the heads, tails, bones, carcasses, etc. we carefully pick through the meat, marrow, cartilage, skin, and some fat and process it all in a Vitamix with the liquid to make a thick stock that will heal your digestive system and strengthen your skeletal system. These stocks come frozen in quart containers and go for $7.50/qt.

This year our pigs and chickens started eating fermented grains (Nature’s Best Organic Feeds – http://organicfeeds.com/) – as their core feeds. The nine pigs downed 55 gallons of whey per week and lived half in the woods, half on the edge of the field, moving weekly to new forage. The chickens and turkeys moved once per day in their mobile pens and the turkeys dined on comfrey every day for the first 2 months. The layers are now completely free range and supplement their fermented diet with stock and lard processing waste this month. They scour the fields when there is no snow. The cows were 100% grass fed on our luxuriant pastures.
We don’t have a store per se, but are available to sell to you if you call ahead to set a time.
