We welcome you to Banbury Cross Farm. Established in 1963, our farm has been passed down from one generation to the next. Our goal is to provide grass-fed, antibiotic free, no added hormone, all-natural beef & lamb. Our livestock is of the highest quality. We believe in the humane treatment of all animals. We do our best to raise and nurture them in a clean, open, natural environment. Banbury Cross Farm provides the finest holistic care for every animal living on our farms. Our pastures are all natural grasses, forbs, and browse. Clean, fresh groundwater is provided in all of the pastures year round.
The beef and lamb are raised with no added hormones, no antibiotics, no meat by- products, and a totally vegetarian diet. They are humanely treated, raised in pastures, and never contained in a feedlot.
Animals Raised in Flerds
We combine our cattle and sheep in fields, where they have a symbiotic relationship. The cattle keep predators away from the sheep, the sheep, if startled, go to the cattle for protection. The sheep and the calves play togethor as well as eat and sleep as one herd.
Healthy Animals & Fields
Our flerds are rotated approximately every 2-5 days through the fields. This is done so our fields do not get overgrazed, the animals get the benefit of the best grasses, and the fields get to rest between grazings, to recover and replenish the fields.
Stewards of the Land
Sheep tend to browse and eat different grasses than cattle, so the flerd system increases efficiency and improves productivity of our pasture management program.
Horses are stabled in large box stalls. Paddocks are available with or without run in sheds. The fields are low stress and relaxing providing a nice change of scenery for racehorses to get away from the tracks/training centers. We have a wash stall/blacksmith shop available for trainers to use. Read more:
