We feed our ducks a combination of organic Coyote Creek feed and spent grain from the local micro breweries. Our cattle are fed grass, hay, organic alfalfa pellets and 10% non-GMO spent grain. Our pigs are fed organic vegetables, organic eggs, organic milk products and non-GMO spent grain from Austin's micro breweries.
We pasture-raise Muscovy and mallard ducks and they even have their own lake. These are available for sale.
We raise Piedmontese and Piedmontese Angus crossed cattle. The Piedmontese breed is about 5000 years old and is known for having a gene that causes increased tenderness.
In order to do daily welfare checks on our cows, we bring them spent grain. Spent grain isn't like grain in that the starch has been removed, thusly giving them protein and fiber that they need.
Our hogs originated from feral stock which has several advantages. These include better fed efficiency, better rooting ability, smaller adult size and less fat. Their flavor and juiciness is similar to beef. Their fat has a nutty flavor.
VEGETABLES AND FRUIT
We raise an abundance of vegetable and fruit. We use no synthetic fertilizer or pesticide. I am working on my organic certification. I like to raise heirlooms, rare and unusual varieties. Many of my summer salad greens are magenta spreen (relative of spinach) and sweet potato leaves (relative of morning glory) which grow all summer when there is no lettuce. Fruit includes concord grapes, figs, pears, peaches, plums, apples and pomegranates.
