Awesome 2016 Summer Forages

Jennifer provides some scale alongside a banquet nutritious green forage.

Grass Fed Beef

The weather during 2016 was perfect for growing tons and tons of nutritious grass and green forages for our herd of grass finished Angus beef. Although this spring has been a bit dry, we are currently getting a nice rain that should help get our pastures off to a good start.

Beef by the 1/4, 1/2 and Whole

We have pre-sold most of our summer beef shares; however, due to an unexpected cancellation, we have one half of a grass finished beef still available to be picked up in mid-June. We also have several beef shares available for reservation this fall. Reserve yours with a deposit of $50 per quarter.

Beef by the Individual Cut

We just received a fresh supply of Scottish Highland beef available by the individual cut in our farm store (see our recent post regarding our High
land beef). We have a good supply of beef bones, tallow and stew meat as well as an assortment of small steaks. We will also have another full beef processed for the farm store by mid-June.

Pasture Raised Poultry

Pasture Raised Meat Chickens

We currently have a large flock of meat chickens growing on pasture. Their diet of grass, clover and insects is supplemented with non-GMO feed.

A large majority of these chickens will be processed and available for purchase by May 13th. A limited number of the processed chickens will be refrigerated to allow customers to purchase fresh, unfrozen birds. The remainder of the processed birds will be vacuum packaged and frozen.

Roughly two weeks later, 50 processed and packaged Freedom Ranger chickens will available for purchase. Over 150 additional chicks arrive this week and will be put on pasture as soon as they are large enough to handle the weather.

New Products for 2017


We have four new honey bee hives and expect to be bottling our own wildflower honey as soon as our bees are strong enough to produce extra honey. In the meantime, we have wildflower honey from a local apiary. The honey is raw and lightly filtered/strained, so it is ideal for individuals wanting local honey for reducing symptoms associated with seasonal allergies.
