"All our animals are given access to adequate pasture. Unlike confinement operations, our cows roam pastures and eat grass, as a cow should! Chickens are omnivores, and are meant to eat green plants as well as bugs, and so we give them adequate room to scratch and forage. We believe in raising animals with respect and care. If you would like to see our farm and see what we do, just contact us at 899.6682"

Tina T., in Kuna
Supplier of Raw Goat's Milk (see disclosure)

Tina is a like second mother to her goats! She cares for them so diligently and thoroughly that her vet says she has the healthiest goats she's ever seen. The goats have free access to pasture and are supplemented with vitamins and calcium, along with alfalfa and dry feeds.

Jennifer R., Sand Hollow
Roasting Chickens (see disclosure)

Jennifer raisies meat chickens for us and does a fantastic job. She raised chickens for years for her own family and willingly raises a big batch now so we can all benefit! She allows her chickens to free range, and what's more, grows chickens at the right time of year when it's not too hot for them to move around freely (spring or fall). She supplements these big eaters with antibiotic-free chicken food.

Meqsuite Cattle Co., Middleton
Grass Fed Beef (see description)

"Our beef is fed home grown or locally grown feed that not been genetically modified. They are not given growth hormones or antibiotics. They are processed at an USDA inspected facility. Our beef is fed home grown or locally grown feed that not been genetically modified."

Jennifer and Tony, Nampa
Supplier of Produce

In 2006 we decided to convert part of the pasture behind our recently purchased old farmhouse into a large garden. Ever since the pasture has grown smaller while the garden has grown bigger, as has our enjoyment of watching plants pop out of the ground and giving us what we need. We use natural fertilizers and old-fashioned hard work to keep the garden looking and growing well, no chemicals used.
