Shady Grove Ranch produces the best quality pasture-raised meats and eggs you can find in the East Texas and Shreveport area. Our products include 100% grass-fed beef, soy-free, non-GMO pasture-raised pork, and truly pastured soy-free poultry, including whole chickens, Thanksgiving turkeys, and fresh eggs.
We use old-fashioned breeds that are hardy and produce well on a natural diet. We focus on utilizing rotational management, “buffet-style” mineral supplementation, total avoidance of chemicals and drugs, and fully finishing our animals on appropriate diets. This means that cows only eat grass, and pigs, chickens, and turkeys forage freely and are supplemented with non-genetically-modified, non-soy grains. Our animals never remain on a fixed patch of ground indefinitely—they are moved regularly, according to season and herd size, to ensure good nutrition and avoidance of disease and parasites.
We only process animals that are nice and fat to ensure amazing flavor, excellent tenderness, and plenty of marbling. Our meat is not extremely lean like some grass-based producers. We believe that most of the goodness about grass-fed beef and pastured pork and chicken is in the fat, so we ask our butcher not to trim, and we select animals for slaughter that are in good body condition—not too fat, not too slim. Animal protein with a moderate amount of fat is tastier, more filling, and easier to digest than leaner meat. Our animals are bred for efficient pasture-fattening and they eat diets appropriate to their species The fat on our animals is buttery, flavorful, and rich. It is nothing like greasy, filmy corn-fed beef fat! And you have never tried a real pork chop until you have one from our Large Black pigs. Caution: After tasting Shady Grove Ranch products, you may never be able to eat store-bought meat again!
We sell by-the-cut and in bulk. We welcome visitors to our operation so that you can learn where your food comes from and know how it is really produced. We offer farm tours and encourage you to sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter to receive information (but never spam!) about our specials, practices, events, and more.
