Review of Half Mile Acres by TexasRealFood
Half Mile Acres is famous for its "pasture-raised chicken and pastured chicken eggs and duck eggs". They offer "great-tasting and healthy chicken". They even treat their laying hens like royalty! They run and forage around the pasture have access to fresh, non-chlorinated, untreated well water. They eat with a non-GMO feed that is free of soy, corn, antibiotics, and hormones. Make sure to visit this farm "located at Ledbetter, Texas". They also "sell at the Bastrop 1832 Farmers Market every Saturday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm". You can purchase a whole chicken and various other cuts, including necks and feet. Their chicken eggs and duck eggs are also available until they ran out. They can even hold your items if you order ahead of time. Presently, "limited supplies of pastured turkeys" are also available in Half Mile Acres.
The term “grass fed” (as opposed to grain fed) refers to meat obtained from cows that were raised on a diet of grass and other forage, such as clover; situated in pasture and, when fresh grass is unavailable, hay. This helps to denote the difference between livestock that has been raised in feedlots and generally fed a diet of soy and corn, versus animals that have had access to their natural feeding environment in pasture, which contains grasses, wildflowers, and herbs. This term overlaps with “pasture-raised” and will usually be seen together. Grass-fed beef is also believed to taste better, and be better for the environment, too. There are several organizations that offer a certification for Grass Fed, such as the American Grassfed Association, Certified Grassfed by A Greener World, and Pasture for Life, to name a few.
Some of the businesses listed in our directory will be using the same principles as Certified Naturally Grown farmers, but without the certification. Certifications can often be expensive and time consuming for most farmers to participate in, and therefore we feel it is important to acknowledge those who practice good land stewardship, without certification.
