All of Roller Coaster Farm’s animals are bred, born, raised, and finished on our farm. They eat a diverse diet of local and seasonal feed we grow ourselves.
Our hardy Kathadin sheep and Highland cattle live outdoors year round and are moved to new pastures every 1-3 days during the grazing season.
Our Tamworth pigs are never subjected to confined farrowing or feeding methods and while they always have access to shelter, they chose to spend most of their time outside. Humane treatment of our animals and utilizing natural farming methods are of paramount importance to us.
We vaccinate our animals but never use sub-therapeutic antibiotics or growth hormones. Many farms use blanket de-worming agents but we are able to avoid their use by breeding parasite resistant animals and practicing rotational grazing
