Herbivores in nature exhibit three characteristics: mobbing for predator protection, movement daily onto fresh forage and away from yesterday’s droppings, and a diet consisting of forage only – no dead animals, no chicken manure, no grain, and no fermented forage. House Mountain Farm’s goal is to duplicate this template as closely as possible. Our cows eat only forage, are rotated daily to new pasture paddocks and stay are herded tightly with portable electric fencing.
In turn, this natural model heals the land, thickens the forage, reduces weeds, stimulates earthworms, reduces pathogens and increases nutritional qualities in the meat.
