All cattle are born here and raised naturally- no artificial hormones or subtherapeutic antibiotics. We feed them in the traditional Kobe manner- grass, water, barley, alfalfa, minerals, and salt. In addition, our cows now have access to the high quality spent grain used in the production of great beer from our neighbors across the street, Empire Brewing Co. The cows love it! All other feed is grown and harvested here on the farm.
