About Mahonia: Our mission is simple: starting from the ground and rising up: we want to grow the best produce we can and share it with our community. We operate using beyond-organic practices. We choose not to certify as organic because we are small enough to know all of our customers first-hand and can communicate with them. We welcome our community and customers to the farm- visit your food, observe our practices, witness the growth!
About Splitting Aces Livestock: Our passion is to grow healthy livestock that comes from Central Oregon. We have deep respect for the livestock that provides food for ourselves and for others, as well as other products that we use on a daily basis. We provide our livestock with the best care possible. This includes nutritious feed, medicine to prevent diseases and a pasture to roam with their herd. Our cattle have been fed a 100% grass diet from full pasture access, no grain, or supplements are fed to finish, no hormones or implants are used. 100% natural raised grass fed beef gives more of the natural taste of the meat produced from the animal.
