ABOUT BODINE FARMS
KNOW WHAT YOUR GETTING:
Our cows have 100% access to pasture grass and hay year round. Our hay is planted specifically for livestock grazing with multiple types of forage to offer a more balanced diet. Our cows also have access to chopped corn silage and grains such as beans, corn kernels, soybeans along with vitamins and minerals as well. During this time the cows still have 100% access to pasture for grazing. Occasionally, our breeding cows get treats such as apples or corn cobs, that help us build a connection to them. Our herd has a mix of red and black Angus along with herefords which are all premium beef cattle. Our beef is typically aged at least 14 days prior to custom cutting and packaging by USDA inspected facilities. Our cattle are NEVER fed any hormones. Although it is very rare here on the farm, Antibiotics are only used when deemed necessary for the health and well being of our animals and all precautions and withdrawal periods are strictly followed.
Our pigs have 100% access to pasture and hay as well. They also have access to grains such as beans, corn kernels, soybeans and soybean meal along with vitamins and minerals as well. They also get kitchen scraps and waffles which are special little treats that allow us to closely interact with them. We keep and maintain different breeds of hogs which include Hampshire and Blue Butt crosses, Landrace and Duroc. Along with heritage breeds such as Mulefoot, Tamworth, Hereford and Red Wattle. Each have traits that compliment each other.
Our sheep and goats are all 4H projects for our kids. These animals are primarily grain fed with top quality show feed. They also have access to hay but their access to pasture is very limited to help reduce intestinal parasites.
We like to think that the rich and succulent flavor to our products are greatly related to the access to good clean feed and water paired with the animals ability to move around our pastures. The stress free environment we create allows the animals to be what they are and in doing so the meat that we get to enjoy and share with our customers is second to none.
Recently we have been able to co-op with other local family farms to help fill the demand of local products. We also have a constant supply of free range farm fresh eggs that are raised by our friends here in Hartly Delaware. Our family members make in-season canned items from recipes that date back 100 years. We also have a supply of fresh local honey that is amazing. Visit us Today!
Our chickens are contracted with Allen Harim and we raise them without the use of Antibiotics and hormones. Our farm is GAP certified (global animal partnership) meaning that the chickens have access to perches, huts to go under, and windows for natural light as well as LED lighting. This part of our farm business is commercial agriculture and there are inputs that are not entirely in our control however, we care for and manage every part of their life here on the farm. There is a lot of detailed time that is put into what we grow and because of this we are proud to back the product. We sell a variety of different cuts of chicken which is as fresh as it can be. As a customer, when you choose to buy our chicken you are still directly impacting our farm and we thank you.
