Our family raises beef, lamb, chicken, pork, eggs and Grade A Raw Goat Milk on forages from pastures untainted by pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers. We do not give our animals synthetic hormone and steroid drugs that others use to make them grow unnaturally fast. Our animals eat only their natural diet in their natural environment their entire lives. Cattle and sheep eat ONLY high quality, clean grasses and clovers – NEVER GRAIN. Our chickens, turkeys and pigs live on organically managed pastures, but they also receive a custom mixed ration consisting of NON-GMO GRAINS raised without synthetic fertilizer, herbicides, or pesticides, plus organic vitamins and minerals. We get our feed grains from Amish farmers and have it shipped to Texas a truck load at a time. .

Our entire family is involved in raising meat this natural way. Our family currently has eight children living at home. Four have married and established their own families. Two live in the Greenville area, one in Nebraska, and one in California. We are currently blessed with eight grandchildren. Each of our family members at home, regardless of age, has farm responsibilities. All are happy to serve others by making optimally nutritious meat available to individuals and families. All of our children have been or are being home schooled. Farming is an important part of our character training program and a wonderful lifestyle. Robert’s background is U.S. Navy (Academy class of 1975 plus 5 years commissioned service) and 20 years in the defense industry before making the break to ranching full time in 2000. Nancy’s college training was in teaching and homemaking. We have been married 36 years as of June 2011. We are very thankful to the Lord to be able to live and work at Rehoboth Ranch.
