On the farm we grow corn, beans, wheat and barley. We also grow peas, oats and barley as a polyculture (grown in the same field) to act as a cover crop and to
feed our pigs and chickens. It is ground on the farm and fed fresh.
Pasture, which is grasses, forbes and legumes, is another one of our crops that we harvest for our grass
fed Beef. We either harvest the pasture as dried hay, bailed or as haylage which is bailed wet and then wrapped. This is a way to ferment the hay, just like sauerkraut. This allows us to
persevere the nutrients when the weather doesn't allow us to make dry hay. All of this is used to feed our cattle over the winter months. Some of our pastures are harvested in the growing
season by strategically rotating our cattle throughout the pasture fields.
