Autumn Grove Farm is better than organic. Our beef cattle and heritage breed turkeys free-range on 90 acres of pasture land without the use of any biosolid fertilization, nor do the animals receive any growth hormones, steroids, or unnecessary antibiotics. The turkey grain supplement is custom blended and several of the ingredients are organic certified. Both cattle and turkeys have 24 hour access to clean water supplied directly from underground wells. Our ponds and creeks are kept animal-free to ensure and promote healthy water.
We practice pasture rotation, keeping the pastures in good condition for grazing as well nutrient value. This also allows the land to absorb the benefits of the natural animal waste fertilizer without over saturating the land and causing waste runoff to contaminate natural water supplies. The cattle and turkeys receive plenty of vitamin D direct from nature's sunshine, and they enjoy clean air and all-day snacking on fresh green salad.
We encourage everyone to educate themselves as to the true definition of organic. We are not certified organic because the term "organic" has—in our opinion—been diluted. For instance, current organic certification allows animals to be raised in cages with limited access to true free-range pasture grazing and to receive a limited amount of sunshine. We do use many organic practices such natural fly control through the use of natural fly traps, muscovy ducks, and fly parasites.
Our beef and turkey are sold locally in central Virginia. Please visit out website for more information.
