Shopping at your trusted local butcher is beneficial for many reasons, including the following:
• In most cases, meat from a local butcher is sourced locally from farmers in your community rather than from factory farms.
• Fewer chemicals are generally used in locally sourced meat.
• Animals on small farms are generally treated more humanely than those on larger operations.
• Shopping here supports your local economy.
When you find a trusted butcher, your meals will taste better than ever before. This is not only because the quality of meat will be better than you’re used to with a chain grocery store, but also because your butcher knows which cuts work best for which cooking method, so you’ll get great results with every meal.
We are taking orders for fresh Thanksgiving turkeys. These delicious turkeys are raised on pasture without the use of antibiotics or hormones by Millers Farms of Norther Indiana.
Our chicks are hatched at our own hatchery and placed primarily on Amish family farms. The birds are raised inside naturally ventilated, curtain sided, houses and are free to roam on open floors. They are fed an all-vegetable, drug free diet and are hormone and antibiotic free.
All Vegetable fed – The feed is a mixture of corn, soybeans, minerals, salt and vitamins that is mixed at our own feed mill and there are no animal by products, animal fats or coloring added, never.
Along with their natural foraging, the turkeys are fed a natural feed that includes non-GMO corn and non-GMO roasted soybeans.
Something To Chew On
The average bite of food in the United States travels 1,300 miles before it is consumed, according to the Food Awareness Project. Decrease the distance (and the enviornmental toll) by supporting local farms and small businesses that support those farms.
**Eating Grass Fed**
You may also reduce your carbon footprint by opting for grass-fed beef. Since the animals graze on foliage, there's no need to grow or transport additional hay. Studies also show that grass-fed beef may be better for your health, packing twice as much omega-3s per serving as grain -fed beef.
