MEAT

Animals are an integral part of our system. When farmed humanely and naturally, animals are indispensable in producing fertility and sequestering carbon while stimulating soil life and plant growth through hoof action and high density mob grazing. Our animals are moved daily with mobile electric fencing. Hormone free, pasture raised on veld, riverbeds and organic mixed pastures. Sheep and cattle receive supplemental minerals; pigs receive supplemental feed from our grain & veggie stores. No GMO feed and no grains fed to ruminants.
 

BEEF

Besides a passion for good genetics and well-bred, adaptable cattle with excellent meat qualities and good feed conversion, we value grazing animals for their valuable role in adding back fertility to the land, sequestering carbon and closing the loop. Watch this space for beef sales opening soon (end 2019/start 2020). To buy top HCO genetics livestock, contact hencoeboerdery@gmail.com

LOWERLAND PAMPOENVARK

So called because we initially brought them into the system to clean up after pumpkin harvests, eat the leftovers and break pest cycles. We mob graze pigs on pasture, fallow fields, between vineyards and trees and supplement their grazing with the discarded bran, chaff and other off-cuts from our organic grains.

Forget everything you know about pork – the meat of these free ranging plowing machines is not the greyish ligth pink of supermarket indoor pigs. Darker red, intensely flavourful and fed only on the good stuff.
