Working with nature from grass/clover and other nutritious 'greens' through cattle to produce beef, the most nutrient dense, mainstay, healthy equivalent of our evolutionary, big game, Hunter Gatherer or Paleo diet.

Cows are out wintered with calves born on late spring grass as nature intended. The calves are predominately grass fattened in the following grazing seasons for optimum health levels in vitamins A, D, E, B12 etc., essential fatty acids high in Omega 3(lean ground tests almost 1000mg per lb) plus high CLA and other beneficial nutrients/minerals.

It is part of our cow herd taken by Al Gallant of Halifax, in August who was looking for our bull field (bull banner) but they had been turned in with the cows.
