Government regulations and local zoning codes make it very difficult for farmers to sell meats directly to consumers. Because of this we are not able to simply sell our USDA inspected cuts of frozen meat to the public on our farm. That being said, Colorado does have Coop law in the form of herd shares that allow us to effectively sell live animals to herd share members and charge a boarding fee for their care. The boarding fees are pro-rated based on the amount of products used by each individual member. We do this on a private contract basis. We have cows, sheep, pigs, turkeys, geese, ducks and chicken on our farm- our herd share members have an ownership interest in all of these animals and have access to the production we get from them in the form of a boarding fee that approximates the value of the food they consume from their animals. Please call or email Alice (720 900 9494/ firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to purchase a Herd Share, become a member of Alice's Underground Food Club and get access to all of our wonderful food.
Cows and Sheep: We feed our ruminants exclusively on fresh green pasture, hay, fermented vegetable and fruit silage (we make from juice pressings we get from The Pressery in Denver), as well as sprouted barley we grow for them in the winter (so they have fresh live greens year-round). We holistically manage our pastures using rotational grazing to ensure that we are constantly improving our soils and building soil organic matter in our grass ecosystem.
Pigs: 98%+ of our pigs' diet comes from the waste stream. Our pigs eat pre-consumer waste from Isabelle Farm, CU, The Pressery, Sister Carmen, Moxie Bread Company, spent brewers grains from Post Brewery and a great deal of our own farm waste. The great majority of it is not grain based and the grains they do consume are generally sprouted or fermented making them vastly more digestible and nutritious. Our pigs live outside, rotating through areas of the farm that need a boost in organic matter and biological life while creating the compost we use to feed our vegetable gardens.
Birds: Our birds free range on 27 acres eating whatever they find. They clean up after our cows, sheep and pigs, breaking their parasite cycles and creating amazing eggs as they go. We also feed them fresh farm sprouted grains year round along with vegetable waste and our own soy-free grain mix (we never purchase GMOS). Like the cows, sheep and pigs, they work tirelessly to improve the biological life of our soils and create the compost we use for our on farm heating systems.
