Simple. Classic. So good.
About this Cut
Our Italian sausage is trimmed from premium-quality meat. No weird stuff.
Bluestem Farm raises heritage-breed pork on pasture in northern Michigan.
To the fullest extent possible, our animals are pasture-raised. This means they are rotated through our fresh, certified organic pastures during the snow-free months, and allowed continuous access to the outdoors during the winter.
Unlike ruminants such as cattle, pigs and chickens are omnivores. They need a balanced diet, which almost always means that grains are a part of their health and growth. That's the case on our farm also. We go out of our way to provide supplemental feed that is local and not genetically modified/non-GMO.
Our animals are never given growth hormones. We treat animals like ourselves, and would give antibiotics only in the case of a true medical emergency, never to boost growth or to temper the effects of confinement. There has never yet been a cause for antibiotics use at our farm.
For more information about our practices, please don't ever hesitate to ask us.
