The farmer said the goats get hay all year long as well as some feed which is mostly locally sourced, although the individual ingredients may not all be local, and he cannot confirm it is GMO-free.

Matt and Amy are 5th (or more) generation farmers, returning to their roots and producing nutrient-dense food for their family and others. They have a 50-acre farm and are about 35 minutes west of Eden Prairie. They milk a few Jersey cows, who eat almost entirely just green grass from the time it is ready in the spring, until it is done in the fall. The other months, they get grass hay that was made on their own land, along with a treat of organic oats, mineral, ACV, and blackstrap molasses. Their land is not certified organic, but they use organic practices. They sell raw milk, grassfed beef and lamb, pastured chickens and turkeys, and chicken and duck eggs.
