Natural

All our animals are pasture-raised. They graze freely their entire lives and mature on a natural growth schedule. Their 100% vegetable diet is supplemented with wholesome grains and is completely free of antibiotics, hormones and animal by-products. It includes:
~ Pasture grasses during the growing seasons
~ Locally grown timothy hay during the winter and early spring
~ Whole oats and barley
~ Ample fresh, clean water

Ethical

We raise our animals to the highest ethical standards.
Each is free to graze in the comfort of wide open spaces that is their natural environment. They are fiercely protected by our donkeys and fully respected by us as farmers.

There are no added hormones. Period.

Antibiotics are used on a case by case basis and only when needed. If an animal is treated with antibiotics, it is removed from our retail and wholesale meat program.

 

Sustainable

We know the importance of the health of our livestock, the preservation of the land that feeds us and the well-being of the workers who help bring our product to market.

Our ongoing mission is to not only manage, but enhance the lives of our sheep, the richness of our soil, and the experience of our employees. We do so by using the most current sustainable farming methods that use only natural, non-toxic barriers to prevent illness and disease.

 


North Star Sheep Farm is truly one of the most impressive farm operations I’ve come across and I can’t wait to honor their incredible work as part of Post 390.
