Meat. Done. Right. Period.

RAISED ON GrASS in arkansas

TRANSPARENCY

Just a few years ago, we were living on the Eastern Plains in Colorado. We had a farm and a government loan and a loan officer who wanted us to use conventional farming methods. We were fed up! This was not our dream!  We sold everything except the essentials and moved to the Boston Mountains of Arkansas. It was breathtaking and sooooo green. And it rained a lot! We are starting over in the place we were meant to be. In 2018 we will be offering non-soy, nutrient-dense, grass-based, humanely-raised goat, chicken, pork, and turkey.

Perhaps we should have just stayed put but we would have had to compromise on the very thing that feeds our soul. Providing a community of individuals and families the best meat and eggs that money can buy. As the saying goes if you don’t stand for something, you stand for nothing. And that’s when it got real. We wanted to be the best stewards we could be. For the land, for the animals and for the people who could no longer trust their food supply chain. So we packed up and headed to our new farm, our new adventure. Two years in and we are building a new community.

Everyone can’t farm, so starting in 2018 we will be thrilled to be your farmer. Someone you can trust to provide you with the quality of local meat and eggs you and your family deserve. We promise to always be honest about how we raise your food and to always make our farm practices transparent to our community.

ON A MISSION

To build a local food community in an environment that allows our animals to express their animalness in a natural setting. Our goal is to provide the community we serve with nutrient-dense food without the use of soy and to respect the animals, the land and the people who work here.

WE BREED FOR THE BEST BITE

Twisted Dixie’s goats are Ki-Bos which is a cross of Kiko and Boer.  We use a cross because it adds hybrid vigor which lessens parasite loads and illness. A major advantage when raised/fed/finished on grass. These goats are delicious however you prepare it but we recommend you get adventurous with an Ethiopian spice blend or use your favorite beef rub.

Use 1/2 teaspoon fenugreek. 1/2 cup ground dried New Mexico chiles. 1/4 cup paprika. 1 tablespoon salt. 1 teaspoon ground ginger. 1 teaspoon onion powder. 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom. 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander.

Our chickens, we think you will agree, are the best you ever ate. They are raised on grass and fed a special, non-soy Organic diet. Never given an antibiotic, they are treated holistically. They are raised with roosters, no artificial light, and allowed scratch in the dirt and eat bugs. To be chickens. The way nature intended. Our egg layers are all heritage breeds and are raised the same way plus they are allowed to go broody and raise their own chicks.

Our turkeys are raised the same way as our egg layers.

Then we come to the pork…What can I say except…YUM! This is the way all pork should taste. Pork…it’s the other red meat. Our pigs are raised on grass and woodland. They root to uncover goodies from the earth and to discover a cool place to lay. They are in a family group of sows and a boar. They are allowed to give birth and wean their babies naturally.  They are fed a special non-soy, Organic diet, as well as, whey and spent brewer’s and distiller’s grain.

At Twisted Dixie Farm our animals not only taste great, they enjoy a great life because we take animal welfare very seriously.

Honestly…if you were a farm animal, how would you want to spend your life? With a ring in your nose so that you couldn’t root in the dirt? In a gestation crate where you couldn’t turn around, or on a cement floor? In a building with 5000 other birds, never seeing the light of day? Crammed in a small building, ripped from your mother at birth and bottle-fed processed milk replacer?

Of course not! That’s why our animals are raised in a way that allows them to express their animalness.

So, whether you live in Ft. Smith, Alma, Fayetteville or anywhere in NW Arkansas, you can rest assured that we give our animals a great life until they’re your best bite ever.
