Rosy Tomorrows is a sustainable farm using organic and holistic practices, where we raise animals as close to nature as possible.
Our livestock are from ‘heritage breeds’ — 100% grass-fed Longhorn cows, Red Wattle pigs, American Guinea Hogs, Australorp chickens, and Slate, Bronze, and Royal Palm turkeys. All are on the “Watch” and “Threatened” list from the American Livestock Conservancy. Free to roam in the fresh air and graze our pastures, each animal remains naturally healthy. No hormones, no steroids and no antibiotics here. Our heritage breed chickens, pigs, and turkeys are fed an all organic diet free of soy and GMO’S.
What we do give them is lush, green, nourishing grass — lots of it. And unlike conventional farms, we don’t need to treat our pastures with chemical fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides — and it’s all down to the way we work in harmony with nature. Farming practices such as pasture rotation and increasing breed diversity (even of pasture grasses) play a key role, as do ongoing efforts to naturally enhance our soil’s fertility. It’s all about nurturing the environment around us.
And what’s best for the pasture and best for the animals is best for people too — healthier animals produce healthier meat. It’s lower in calories, has more ‘good fats’, and has more vitamins and minerals (read more about that here and here).Cattle Pigs Chickens Garden Farm Ambassadors
Certified 100% Grass-Fed Beef
Let’s talk about our certified 100% grass-fed beef. The American Grassfed Association, the organization that certifies us, defines grassfed products from ruminants, including cattle, bison, goats, and sheep, as “those food products from animals that have eaten nothing but their mother’s milk and fresh grass or grass-type hay from their birth until harvest.”
We use the term certified 100% grassfed” to make it clear that the cows on our farm are fed mother’s milk and grass, and only grass (or hay) for their entire lifetime.
Another term to confuse consumers is becoming more and more popular: “grass-finished” has gained traction and people ask us all the time is our beef grass-finished. Yes it is. The term, grass finished implies the same thing but grass-finished beef is not 100% grass-fed beef. Confused? Many industrial producers of beef finish their animals with grass after feeding corn or other grains for most of the cow’s life. Then they are sent to be processed, so they are grassfed at the end of their lives, but NOT grassfed for 100% of their lives.
When choosing beef, we hope you look for the AGA certification. Certified 100% Grass-fed Beef. That’s the best way to cut through the labeling confusion to choose the best and healthiest beef for your family.
