Southern Pastures Farm is a small farm located in south west Louisiana. We raise and sell grass fed beef, pastured pork, and pastured poultry.
Our cattle never receive any grain or hormones. The cattle are on pasture all their lives. In the winter the cattle are fed hay and provided shelter along with full access to pasture. We don’t use antibiotics in any of our animals. If we must use antibiotics because of injury or illness the animal is removed from our program when it gets well.
Pigs are on pasture all their lives. They are allowed to root in the dirt and lay in the mud to their hearts content. Quality pasture is supplemented by locally grown and milled grain for a complete ration.
Broilers are brooded on deep bedding in our brooder with plenty of sunlight and fresh air. As soon as they are able to survive outside they are moved to portable field shelters that get moved to fresh pasture everyday. The broilers are supplemented with locally grown and milled feed. Throughout the farm we follow organic principles and practice regenerative agriculture.
We are starting buying clubs in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Shreveport, Beaumont, and Houston as well as the surrounding areas. We also work together with Hill Crest Creamery to provide pastured dairy products. The dairy cows have access to pasture all the time. We supplement the pasture with up to 6 pounds of locally grown and milled feed a day. The cows receive no growth hormones and if we must use antibiotics due to illness the milk is tested and discarded until no antibiotics are present. Visit our website to learn more.
