Here at Grass + Grit, we have carefully selected each species and breed that we raise. Each animal plays an integral role within a larger system, and these choices are critical in maintaining the health of our animals and the land we farm. With careful planning, we rotationally graze these different groups of animals to produce delicious meat and eggs while also improving soil fertility and pasture productivity.
We have specifically sought out breeds that are hardy and proven to thrive on pasture. Whenever possible, we raise heritage breeds that celebrate the rich farming history of the Hudson Valley. In many cases, our animals are also considered “dual-purpose,” which means they can be raised for more than one product, such as sheep for wool and meat, or chickens for eggs and meat.
