Our beef is raised solely on the forage from our pastures – no grain, no antibiotics, no hormones, and no pesticides. Every day our cattle get a fresh paddock of grass and fresh water from our springs and wells. The result is a delicious and nutritious product that is superior to the supermarket beef: lower fat, lower calories, higher Omega-3’s, higher beta-carotene, and higher cancer fighting CLA’s. Additionally, our grazing methods not only improve the health of our beef but also the land, increasing the fertility of the pastures.
Our delicious forest fed pork comes from hogs which like all of our animals, live a far different life from their counterparts on industrial farms. Our pigs’ diet includes sunshine, green grass, organic grains and rooting in the woods for acorns and tubers. The natural diet of our pigs results in healthy and nutritional pork full of vitamins, minerals and good cholesterols not found in supermarket pork.
Our eggs are produced by our free range chickens that work in a symbiotic relationship with our cattle herd. Our mobile chicken coop follows behind our cattle, rotating daily. Each day our chickens roam the fields getting their fill of bugs and grass. The result is beautiful eggs with a nutritious rich yolk and incredible flavor!
Broadview Ranch is a multigenerational family farm located just south of Lexington, VA. We are focused on producing good food – good for the body, good for the palate, good for the land, good for the animals, and good for our community. We currently raise beef, pork and eggs for sale by the cut at our farm store, various farmers’ markets, our buying clubs and CSA. Please visit the store to place your order or contact us.
The first tracts of what today make up Broadview Ranch were purchased in the 1920′s by Tex Tilson, the grandfather or great-grandfather of the current farmers. It has been farmed using similiar methods by the family ever since. In 2008, the family decided to expand the business by selling directly to consumers. We have greatly enjoyed the challenge and interactions that have resulted from that decision. Please come be a part of what we are doing.
