We raise a limited number of meat animals. Breeds are chosen from the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy list of rare and endangered livestock and the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste. For livestock that means fewer than 200 annual registrations in the United States and estimated global population less than 2,000 and for poultry, fewer than 500 breeding birds in the United States, with five or fewer primary breeding flocks (50 birds or more), and globally endangered.
Animals are raised naturally, following humane animal treatment guidelines. Meats are processed at USDA approved plants that practice humane animal treatment.
