Healing Springs raises 100% grass fed, pasture raised Belted Galloway beef cattle. Our goal is to raise hormone-free, steroid-free beef cattle without the high stress of feedlots. Our cattle are never given growth stimulants or sub therapeutic antibiotics. Our cows are pastured raised for their entire life cycle and supplemented with locally grown hay in the winter months. We practice responsible rotational grazing of our pastures for maximum efficiency.
The Belted Galloway Breed (Belties) developed during the 16th century in the former Galloway district of Scotland. Belted Galloways were first imported to North America in 1939. Belties have a double coat of hair, rather than a layer of back fat most breeds require, that provides warmth in the harsh High County winter months.The are a medium sized cow that adapts well to the terrain in our region, they are great foragers and wonderful mothers that calve easily.
Belted Galloways produce exceptionally lean, flavorful and high quality meat. Our beef is processed at a local meat processing facility that is USDA inspected and Animal Welfare approved. It is sold vacuum packed, then flash frozen, ready to go into your freezer. We have a selection of cuts available for sale, just ask us! We do not keep regular store hours as this is a working farm. Please call ahead to let us know when you would like to come purchase from our Farm Store.
Healing Springs expanded to pastured pork in 2016. We are proud to raise our pigs on pasture, where they get to naturally root around in the woods and relax in the sunshine. They have shelter and shade in case of inclement weather, but they have loads of room to roam about and be pigs! Our pigs are fed a diet of quality feed supplemented with garden produce, acorns, apples and pumpkins along with milk from a local dairy. Our pigs are not given any growth hormones or antibiotics and are raised as naturally as possible. Just like we do with our cattle, we also practice responsible rotational grazing of our pig pastures for maximum efficiency.
Our pigs are processed at the same USDA approved, Animal Welfare Approved facility as our cattle and packed vacuum sealed and flash frozen. We have a selection of cuts available for sale. We do not keep regular store hours as this is a working farm. Please call ahead to let us know when you would like to come purchase beef, pork or eggs.
We added chickens to our farm recently and are constantly entertained by their antics! You will find our friendly flock of hens roaming around Healing Springs. These girls are doing a great job in our vegetable garden area eating all sorts of interesting things. Our hens are allowed to free range in the daytime, but get tucked up into their hen house at night to keep them safe from predators. They are fed high quality scratch grains, vegetable scraps without any added hormones or growth products. Nothing beats the taste of farm fresh egg!, We are happy to offer eggs from our hens for sale in our Farm Store, just give us a call and let us know when you would like to stop by.
