It may sound deliberately dramatic, but in the United States, it's estimated that around 97% of calves born end up transitioning from smaller farms to larger-scale feedlot operations. These calves often start their lives on grass and mothers' milk on these smaller farms before being sold.
At Tyner Pond Farm, we choose a different path. We focus on raising calves in a holistic and sustainable way, prioritizing environmental responsibility, human health, and animal welfare. By acquiring calves from small farms, like our recent addition of 43 calves from Greg Judy, we're not increasing the overall cattle population. Instead, we're providing an alternative pathway for these animals, one that aligns with our values and our commitment to grassfed beef.
We believe in creating a system that works with nature, not against it. And we're grateful to have you join us on this journey."

Calves at Tyner Pond spend their entire lives Holistically Managed eating nothing but grass, expressing their natural behavior without the need for antibiotics or hormones. It's a good life.
We decided a few years ago that instead of having our own calves born on Tyner Pond Farm and increasing the overall cattle population, we were going to scour the country and find the best ranchers and bring as many as we can to our farm.
This is a bit more expensive for us, but we think it’s important work.
The voluntary calf fund collects from our supporting customers and goes specifically towards our twice per year calf purchases.
