Akyla Farms is Kevin and Carol Osterman. We started this farm in 2006 to bring pasture raised chicken, pork, beef,
and goat from livestock that has never been fed animal products or industry waste. The beef and goat will
also never be fed grain to maximize the health benefits of conjugated linoleic acid and omega-3 fatty acids. All
of the animals have a healthy, clean contented life. Although we are not certified organic, our animals will not
get drugs in their food but if one is sick or injured we will use the appropriate amount of medications to return
it to a healthy, clean contented life. If you are interested in learning more about our local, family farm please
feel free to contact us.
Goats for Hire
To be the talk of the neighbourhood and manage your brushy vegetation have the goats come stay
on your property more
Cleaner processing, openness of product information, supporting small family farm, consuming a healthier product
from an animal that is fed healthier as you are not just what you eat, you are what your food eats.
Grass-based livestock production is in the rapid growth area. We will be increasing production as we are able to and
still keep up the quality.
As grass is seasonal so are our products. In order to provide the best quality/eating experience our stock are slaughtered
on their timeline.
Unmanaged Rotational Grazers
Elk on the Birdsview property.
More of the herd.
We regularly see up to thirty head as they wander around the Birdsview area. Fencing gets the brunt of the elk damage
but by using high tensile, electric that we specifically installed with the elk in mind we do very little repair.
Probably in the $20 per year range. Our gates get the worst of it.
The elk don't stay in one spot long enough to make a major impact and its rare that we have to adjust our grazing plan
around their consumption.
Meat birds transitioning out of the brooder.
This is a cool picture of the pasture pens for the meat chickens. We have found that the transition from the brooder to
the outdoor pens is scary for the birds so we provide them a little light to make the transition easier.
