Building on tradition
Growing green grass provides micronutrients and minerals that standard stock feed cannot. Allowing animals the freedom to range on pasture enables them to selectively choose what they’re eating. This also gives the animals an opportunity to express natural behaviors, eliminating many problems that arise simply because the animal is bored. Research shows that access to living plants enhances the vitamin content of eggs, as well as meat, from pasture-raised animals. See selected research articles here.
