About Pecan Meadow Farm +-

Pecan Meadow Farm is a small diversified family farm specializing in 100% grass fed cattle, sheep, and goats as well as pastured chickens, ducks, and geese for meat and eggs and also guinea fowl, turkeys, hogs, and rabbits. They do not use herbicides or chemical fertilizers on their crops and do not give antibiotics or GMO grains to their animals. They feed the soils with natural and organic products to increase quality – which in turn produces healthier grains and pastures which then makes a more nutritious food for them and us.

Pecan Meadow specializes in Piedmontese-crossed cattle. The Piedmontese breed originated in the Piedmont area of Italy and is a double muscled animal that has smaller muscle fiber than most cattle breeds making it extra tender and very good for using as grass fed. They use a Piedmontese bull on a variety of different cow breeds and this produces a very tender, tasty product with the right fat content and excellent flavor.

The cattle are second generation 100% grass fed (not only the ones they butcher for market, but also their mothers were 100% grass fed). The cattle are rotated around different fields so that they get a variety of different grasses and legumes giving them the optimum nutrition that various forages can supply. The cattle are supplemented with natural minerals and kelp. Grass fed meats are known to be high in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) which is known to fight cancer. It is also higher in Vitamin E and Omega 3’s than grain fed cattle. The ratio of Omega 3 fats and Omega 6 fats in grass fed cattle is very balanced.

The lamb and goat are raised in the same manner as the cattle: 100% grass fed, supplemented with natural minerals and kelp. The pigs are fed a natural diet including alfalfa and non-GMO, chemical-free grains. All of their poultry is fed organic and/or non-GMO, chemical-free feed, a lot of which they raise themselves including oats, wheat, and triticale. They are pastured when weather permits.
