The mission at Obst Farm is to raise the healthiest, most natural and delicious meat products that their land can produce for their neighbors here in WNY. In so doing, they continually improve the land they use, not deplete it. Their animals are raised in as natural a way as possible, within their intensive, rotational grazing system. They ensure that they are eating their natural, God-given diets - nothing more and nothing less. The cattle and sheep only eat naturally occurring grasses and forages in their pastures and lots of hay in the winter. The rabbits live on pasture eating grass or hay. The chickens live out on the pasture with access to fresh grass, bugs and sunlight, as soon as they're mature enough to do so. It is a joy to see the animals using and continually fertilizing their pastures each rotation of the farm. Lastly, they NEVER use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, medicated (antibiotic) feed, or hormones in their pastures or animals. The principles by which they farm ensure that their family and customers consume a delicious, premium meat product that is an invaluable asset to to their health. Their customers are always welcome to see their beautiful farming operation and magnificent animals hard at work!
