  • (517) 851-4352
    Zatkovich Pastures is a grass-based farm that produces beef, chicken, and eggs. Although not certified organic (and with no plans to become so), we consider ourselves "better than organic" and educate the customer by encouraging them to actually visit the farm and assess it for themselves. We adhere to three principles; that of animal welfare, that of grass-based farming, and that of complete transparency. Our cattle are 100% grass-fed from birth; our chickens are 100% free-ranged and fed organic, locally-grown feed. We use symbiotic strategies wherever possible to maximize the biodiversity and fertility of the pastures. We are stewards of the land we are using, and as such, we add to it, not take away. Instead of manure being a pollutant, as is the case on a feedlot, every bit goes back into our soil, one way or another. We use rotational grazing strategies to avoid over-grazing any areas. Ranging chickens, following the cattle, add their own manure and help control biting flies. We compost everything possible and add it directly to the pastures. It’s a big, synergistic dance that results in happy animals, fertile soil, and rich grass.
