Grass Fed and Grass Finished Beef at Red House Ranch
Rotational grazing of beef cattle is a big part of the regenerative agriculture operation at Red House Ranch.
Laying hens and hogs are also systematically moved over the pastures to improve the quality of grazing areas for future flocks and herds. Regenerative farming refers to specific actions taken to improve soil that has been depleted by repeated plowing, application of industrial agricultural chemicals, and mono-crops. While Red House Ranch farmland has not been exposed to chemicals or plowing in over 40 years, to produce the highest quality grass fed and finished beef, pastured pork, chicken, and eggs requires an ongoing effort to further improve soil quality.
Our pristine pastures contain many varieties of grasses and plants. This provides a broad range of nutrients for our ruminators and ultimately for us. Because of animal impact (hoof action disturbing the soil) latent seed beds are exposed to sun and rain creating an even more diverse salad bar for our cattle.
Red House Ranch beef are fed only a diet of grass from the pastures. No grain ever. This results in the highest possible nutrient density from animals raised on pasture.
