Thundering Hoof Ranch LLC is a family owned and operated farm located within the beautiful and gentle rolling hills of Green Lake County. At The Ranch we have a strong tie to the land as we are 4th and 5th generation farmers. We are working to preserve and restore habitat for wildlife by replacing once highly eroded row crop land with sustainable forage based farming, restored windbreaks, and set aside habitats for wildlife.
We raise all of our animals and they can be seen on the ranch in a healthy environment. We do not treat our animals with routine antibiotics or growth hormones and take great care to work with nature. For example, our egg laying chickens follow the cows as a means of pest control instead of using chemical pesticides. We believe animals should be raised the way nature intended and do not feed them unnatural diets.
Rotationally grazing is a large part of what we do to preserve the land and ensure it is not overused. Rotational grazing is a livestock production system where livestock graze in one portion (a paddock) of a pasture that has been divided into several paddocks. Livestock are systematically moved from paddock to paddock based on the stage of growth of the forages. While one paddock is being grazed, the rest of the pasture rests. This rest and recovery time maintains forage plants in a healthy and vigorous condition.
Products offered to our customers currently include Beef, Pork, Chicken, and Lamb. All of our meats are processed locally. In addition, we offer Truly Free Range Eggs and rhubarb.
