OUR ANIMALS

Hunter Cattle Company believes in the health benefits of Grassfed Beef, Pastured Pork and Lamb, Free –  Range Poultry and Eggs. Our family owned and operated farm is committed to providing the healthiest,  best tasting meats and eggs for your breakfast, lunch, and dinner plate. On our farm, as well as our  partnering farms, we raise and finish our cattle 100% grassfed, free to roam and graze. Our pigs are  pastured, free to roam and root the way they were intended to. Our chickens get their nutrients from  the fields making their meat tasty and the eggs richer than those bought at the grocery store. Our  animals receive no added growth hormones, steroids, or antibiotics, and are not subject to feedlots or  cages. Hunter Cattle is committed to the humane treatment of all the animals on our farm, ensuring  their health and happiness at all times.

When clean eating and the desire for local meats started to rise above our own supply, we were  thankful to have neighbors in the area who were willing to start raising animals with us. We now have  certified farms that are raising animals under the same standards, audited and certified the same. We  are blessed to be able to support local farmers in this way and hope to continue to grow and help other  family farms who love raising livestock naturally.

Our Commitment

  • Our cattle are 100% Grassfed. Grass raised and grass finished only on their mama’s milk and natural grasses and forages. They will consume no grain, grain by-product, alternative feed, or by-products from other animals. Cereal grains are only permissible in the vegetative state (as seed with the leaf). Stored forage should be in the form of cured grass or legume hay.
  • All animals will be free from antibiotics, added growth hormones, steroids, pesticides, and confinement. Animals with the need to receive antibiotics for health reasons will be removed from the program.
  • Animals will be of genetic type with the ability to finish on forage at proper body condition and maturity. This will be established through visual appraisal, genetic verifiers (tenderness gene), carcass testing, or all inclusive.
  • Animals will be humanely handled and processed with minimum amount of stress and crowding.
  • Harvesting and processing of these animals is accomplished with a minimal amount of stress and under the stick guidelines of the USDA and in addition, third party humane auditors.
  • Partnering farms will adhere to the same protocols and standards.

Pastured Pork is more nutritious than store bought pork. It is higher in Vitamin E, higher in Omega-3’s, and richer in antioxidants, which help prevent cancer and many other chronic diseases.

As you can see, our pigs are healthy and happy! They are being raised as they are meant to be under the shelter of the forest, foraging on vegetation and bugs off the forest floor. Their food is always available and is antibiotic, steroid, and hormone free. Over the span of their lifetime our pigs receive no antibiotics, steroids, hormones, or artificial supplements. Instead, they gain their nutrients from what nature has to offer them. Our pigs are allowed to root, dig, and run, just as they were meant to. This improves the quality of their lives as well as the quality of the meat they produce.

Free Range Poultry & Eggs

Our free range chickens are fed an omnivores diet which makes their meat and eggs amazingly healthy!

By feasting on bugs, grass, and grain, free range poultry and eggs are:

  • Less cholesterol and saturated fat
  • More Vitamin A & E
  • Higher in Omega 3
  • More Beta Carotene
  • No confinement in cages

Free Range Turkey

We seasonally raise free range turkeys that are locally hatched and then raised on our open range farm. You can reserve yours today for Thanksgiving or Christmas or just a special treat. Quantities are limited so reserve as early as you can. Here is a brief overview of the two types of turkeys we are raising now.

Heritage Turkey’s:

  • Are domestic and are historically known as a wild breed.
  • Have a much longer life span in conjunction with a slower overall growth rate.
  • Do not require artificial insemination.
  • On average, a heritage breed requires 28 weeks to fully mature.
  • Have less breast meat, with more of a 50/50 ratio of white/dark meat.
  • Are more sought after because of their incomparable, savory taste.

REAL FOOD THAT TASTES REAL GOOD.
