The cows and other animals that Kerry and Stephen (pictured above) raise are loved and named. They graze on fresh grass, are fed a well-balanced diet, and are housed in a bedded pack barn with fresh sawdust. These cows are humanely raised.
On the farm, Kerry and Stephen don’t use any electric machines – only old-fashioned horse-drawn farm implements – so that they can avoid introducing pollutants from emissions into the fields. The manure from the cows is used as compost for their no dig garden – an all-natural way to fertilize the fields.
We can't sing our praises loud enough for Cedar Mountain Farm and all of the amazing things they are doing. To learn more about Cedar Mountain Farm, their wonderful animals, and their farming practices, click here.
And while we do think the tallow that we use in our products is an important, sustainable ingredient for those who aren’t vegan, we also understand that some people prefer to avoid animal products altogether, which is why we do offer many body care products that are vegan (no tallow, beeswax, honey, or dairy).
