At Mint Creek Farm, the Carr family and their team strive for maximum species diversity in both animals and pasture plants. “We are fervent believers in 100% grass-fed animal nutrition,” says Harry Carr, the farm's founder, who explains that an abundance of green leafy plants in the diet of ruminant animals raise the omega-3 composition of fatty acid balance–resulting in a healthier animal, which makes for healthier meat. (An explanation of this process is available at http://mintcreekfarm.com/blog/) “Having started raising sheep organically 20 years ago,” Harry says, “we have added goats, cows, pigs, chickens, ducks and turkeys. We have worked on mimicking the way buffalo would graze prairie with our pasture management techniques–a process sometimes called mob grazing.” The organic-fed, grass-fed meat and eggs raised at Mint Creek are available to buy at every Green City Market day, where you can also find more information about the farm and its meat CSA offerings.
