At ZZ Ranch we are focused on not just products, but a lifestyle. So we do it all from farm raised meat and veggies, to handmade soaps and candles and even have your Christmas decorating covered. And we do it all without antibiotics, pesticides or herbicides. Here is just some of what we do:
Beef- Our cows are pasture raised until the last 30 days or so when they are offered organic soy free grain in addition to their grass diet.
Lamb- Our lambs are pasture raised just like our cows and also finished on a soy free, organic grain a few weeks before they go in for butcher.
Pasture Raised Chicken- We have an area set aside just for chickens to peck and scratch . In addition to their pasture we feed them a ration that is soy free and organic. It contains all the vitamins and minerals needed to supplement what they need. They are butchered when young to provide a tender and juicy bird.
All of our vegetables are grown without sprays or herbicides. The seeds we plant are non GMO. We love to use heirloom varieties whenever possible.
Salsa- We use a wide variety of peppers, onions and heirloom tomatoes to create a salsa with a lot of flavor and just the right amount of heat.
Pickles- Just like grandma used to make. Sweet, hot and dill pickles are available when the cucumbers are ripe until they run out.
We have a few other vegetables we process that will be available seasonally.
Honey- The great thing about where we are is that there is very little farming by us. That means our bees are not exposed to anything we don't know about. Our bees forage on wildflowers, tree and our gardens to produce a really nice mellow tasting honey.
Honey Jam- Our fruit jams are sweetened with honey rather than table sugar. We start with a low sugar recipe and have modified the recipe to take honey instead. Our jam tends to resemble a fruit spread or preserves more than a typical jam.
Handmade soap- We make our soap from scratch using high quality, skin loving oils that are known for nourishing the skin without any unnecessary chemicals. Each ingredient lends a quality to the soaps. They are available in both essential oils and in high quality, Phthalate free fragrance oils. The result is a gentle, quick rinsing, long lasting soap with lots of lather.
Candles- We make both beeswax and soy candles. Both are clean burning waxes. Beeswax, however, goes above and beyond by ionizing the air, causing dust particles to drop out of the air.
Wreaths, roping and other Christmas decor- We make a variety of balsam and fraser fir custom, handmade products to give a warm festive feel to your home or business.
