"We need to respect the fact that cows are herbivores, and that does not mean feeding them corn and chicken manure."
- Joel Salatin
We believe that grass fed animals raised on their natural diets, with love and respect and living in their most natural environment, produce the most nutritious food. That's why we keep our animals outside on fresh green pasture, where they are free to roam and do as they please. Our animals are also fed clean well water and they are never given hormones or antibiotics. The meat is aged without the use of toxic chemicals like industrial meat that you find in grocery stores.
Having our animals out on pasture comes with amazing environmental benefits, like keeping our pastures trimmed without the use of gasoline-powered lawnmowers, and building topsoil and animal habitat. The bottom line is, every bite of food you eat from Alpenblick Farm simultaneously improves your health and the health of the environment.
Why Alpenblick Meat is Superior:
Friendlier Animals than at a Petting Zoo
Robert and Petra can call any of their cows by name and they will come, similar to a household dog or other pet. This level of compassion and care for the animals is the traditional way of farming that Robert was taught as a child on his family farm in Switzerland. Robert and Petra share a great love for animals and enjoy showing to their customers how happy and friendly their animals are. It makes everybody feel good knowing that the products from Alpenblick Farm come from a special place.
