We pride ourselves in sourcing dual purpose animals. This means the animal has been raised for more than just one purpose. Our cows live long healthy lives as organic pasture raised dairy cows and at the end of their lives provide organic beef for our community.
Mindful Meats cows live long full lives out on pasture their entire lives. They graze pastures when they are green and during the off season they are supplemented with farm grown silage (fermented grass), alfalfa, and hay. The milking cows are given a snack of mixed grain when they come into the barn for milkings. The milking cows need the extra calories from the mixed grain to lactate as producing milk is very calorie intensive. All of the pastures the cows graze are certified organic. All of the additional supplemental feed is certified organic and DNA tested for GMOs.
