Our Herd

Our Herd

The herd at B&B Farms is 100% Grass-Finished. We have Red Angus and Red Angus Cross. As of 2022, we have 22 Brood Cows and growing to 35, which is our maximum carrying capacity. We have two herds, the Brood Cows and the Finishing Bunch. Calves are born in mid-May on fresh pasture and remain with the Brood Cows for 10 months when they are naturally weaning. At this point, the calves are introduced to the Finishing Bunch. The two herds rotationally graze as separate herds during the grazing season and merge into a single herd again for the winter. All steers remain in the Finishing Bunch until they are finished (19-30 months depending). Most heifers also remain in the Finishing Bunch, but the best of the best become future Brood Cows and are reintroduced around two years old. 

Pastured Pigs

Our pigs root around in pasture, eat grass, fruit, and veggie table scraps, and (unlike our cows) grain. No antibiotics, no hormones, no confinement - just good old-fashioned pigs being pigs. Call for availability!
