Our “Trust Deposit” When Buying

Lonesome Star’s Trust Deposit:

Before accepting your $100 refundable deposit, we will discuss your livestock expectations and what I should have to offer.  If it sounds like a good match, the deposit is accepted to hold your particular or general pick(s) from that particular litter.

Come buying time, if the available livestock does not closely match what we had previously agreed upon, your deposit will be fully refunded and not held over for the next litter.

With good communication throughout the buying process, I am confident that excellent service before and long after purchase, homesteader-focused breeding program, and fair prices will make for a great relationship for those I can partner with.

Heritage Breeds Defined

7/21/12

“Heritage” livestock can be defined as selectively breeding animals/livestock that were around generations ago. Why is this important?

 

Heritage breeds of pork & other animals are older breeds, genetically predisposed to be more disease-resistant, heartier, have a better temperament, and sustain more on grass alone (less feed costs).

Simply put, the older breeds of livestock are “tried and true” where the farmer selectively bred the healthiest livestock the natural way over generations so we can enjoy that breed of animal’s great characteristics today. With this in mind, Lonesome Star Farm believes if you take care of the livestock, they will take care of us.

We believe:
“Heritage breeds grown the heritage way”

Heritage breeds appear to slower but so do most creatures that are built strong and healthy. In reality, today’s corporate breeds are modified to grow too fast.

By breeding the best of the best, how can you go wrong with that? Kunekunes we cultivate are all pure bred. Those before us have done the hardest work. It’s up to us to carry on this hearty legacy.
