Frequently Asked Questions
Are all of your products drug free?
Yes. We never use antibiotics or drugs on any of our animals. We use environmentally sound — like rotational grazing — and innovative, highly effective yet simple equipment, such as mobile poultry cages, to produce all-natural, drug-free beef, pork and chicken for your family.
Do you raise all of your animals at your farm?
We raise 90% of our own livestock on our seven Tyner Pond Farm properties. When demand is higher than supply, sometimes we may purchase animals from like-minded, local farmers who use the same sustainable farming practices as we do.
Why is pasture-raised better?
Pasture-raising animals creates a healthier animal and healthier, longer lasting land. Our animals spend their days happily grazing, not on cement eating from a trough. Through livestock rotation, we are actually able to take depleted pastures and make them lush and fruitful again.
What’s the difference between pasture-raised, free-range and cage-free eggs?
All Tyner Pond Farm eggs come from pasture-raised chickens. Read more about how we raise our chickens.
- “Pasture-raised" - Our birds peck at insects, grass seed and flap around on a grassy field and even in some bushes and trees. The most humane option and the best tasting option.
- "Cage-free" - Birds may not be in confined pens, but are still stuck indoors their entire lives and may never see daylight.
- "Free-range" - These birds must have "access" to the outside but no requirement that they ever actually go outside.
Do you sell whole or half cows?
Sometimes we do if supply is available. If interested in a whole cow of share, please contact Kara Farrell at Kara@farmersmarket.com.
