Fresh Earth Farms is proud to offer grass-fed, organic meat from Anderson Farm.
There is no giant feedlot at Anderson Farm, no cabinets full of antibiotics. They raise natural Beef, Pork & Poultry in carefully managed pasture land according to the animal’s natural reproductive cycles. Calves nurse from their mothers for at least 6-8 months. Rotating animals through different pastures more closely mimics natural migration patterns. Their animals get all the fresh air and sunshine they want; the Anderson’s take responsibility to provide their animals with the most natural, humane life they can give them.
They use no antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides on either the animals or the land. They manage the farm land and animals as a cohesive ecosystem. The soil nutrients in their pastures are continually tested and balanced for best grass quality and best nutrition. The result is a healthier animal and meat that is better for you.
Anderson Farm grass-fed Black Angus and Heritage Beef are raised on managed pastures and hay, producing lean, healthy meat. Grass-fed beef has the advantages of being richer in flavor, higher in Omega-3 fatty acids and higher in poly-unsaturated fats. It also greatly reduces the risk of BSE (mad cow disease) and E. coli more likely in conventional feed lot beef. Currently 25 million pounds of antibiotics are used in the U.S. livestock industry on an annual basis. We are happy to say that we use absolutely none.
Anderson Farm heritage pigs are raised on mixed clover/grass pasture with plenty of room to roam and wallow in the mud. In addition to pasture forages, they get locally milled grain. Sunshine and fresh air eliminate the need for any medications that factory farms use routinely. They have shelter from the sun and weather as they choose.
Anderson Farm heritage chickens are raised the old fashioned way - on fresh green pasture and locally milled organic grain. Unlike chickens raised in confinement, these chickens spend their days pecking away at various plant species and insects, taking dust baths, or resting in the shade. Their high quality diet coupled with the time they spend ranging in the fields produces an exceptionally flavorful bird. They are naturally more moist and juicy and provide superior nutritional qualities rich in CLA, omega-3 fatty acids, beta carotene, and vitamin E. The chickens weigh 3-5 pounds each.
