Pastured Pork

Markegard Family Grass-Fed is owned and operated by Erik and Doniga Markegard. Markegard Family Grass-Fed provides the community with pastured, locally born, raised and processed meat and eggs through a community supported agriculture program where individuals and families purchase shares of grass-finished steers or lamb and participate in a weekly or monthly buying club.

  • Our ranch is pesticide and chemical fertilizer free
  • Our cattle and sheep are never grain fed or given synthetic hormones or antibiotics
  • No genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
  • Raised on a family ranch
  • Cattle are not put in feedlots
  • Fed only the forage the range provides
  • Our grazing methods improve the biodiversity of the land 

Our philosophy in grazing is to manage the cattle herd to simulate the large herds of Elk and Antelope which once roamed California’sgrasslands. We accomplish this by keeping the herd moving with Holistic planned grazing, so as never to overgraze an area, but to stimulate growth and grass-land health through properly timed grazing. Watershed Stewardship is at the forefront of our management practices.

Health Benefits of Choosing Grass-Fed

Meat and dairy products from pastured animals are ideal for your health. Compared with commercial products, they offer you more "good" fats, and fewer "bad" fats. They are richer in antioxidants; including vitamins E, beta-carotene, and vitamin C. Furthermore, they do not contain traces of added hormones, antibiotics or other drugs.Find out more at Eat Wild
