About the ranch:
Pure Pastures is a family-owned and operated ranch in Canyon Lake, Texas. They practice 100% regenerative farming techniques and produce some of the most delicious, nutrient-dense meats in the heart of Texas Hill Country.
The Eubank and Moorman Families began their loving stewardship of the land they call home in 2015 and since then, have perfected not only their crop rotations, but their intentions on breeding and selections have led to happy, healthy animals. Their pigs were bred to be easy keeping, incredible foragers-they never go hungry and result in beautifully marbled pork. Their sheep are a breed that sheds its hair, as opposed to wool which needs to be sheared, so the sheep are happy in the summer time and the lamb they produce is less gamey than that of wool sheep. In addition to pigs and sheep, they raise cattle, ducks, and chickens for a balanced and well-tended ecosystem.
