Grass Fed GirlsWe're well into Summer and that means our cows are enjoying a mix of lush grasses.We feed our cows only grass and hay, never grains, because we believe that herbivores are meant to eat grass! The Cows are some of our favorite animals here on the farm - we enjoy their calm, steady presence. Some are shy and some are quite friendly, but they're all excited to see us when it's time to move to new pasture! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Moving the Herd We take full advantage of the healthy, vigorous pasture during warm weather and move our herd often to fresh ground. The cows look forward to their regular moves, and stroll over to the next section of untouched grass with only a few calls from Jordan. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------What Makes our Beef Operation Regenerative?We believe that grass is the best natural diet for ruminating (grazing) animals. And healthy animals produce healthy meat!By rotating our cows constantly through fresh pasture, we also naturally fertilize the soil on our farm and improve our pasture land.We honor the herbivore by offering fresh grass with frequent moves to produce healthy meat and healthy land!----------------------------------------------------------------------------------How to Cook Grassfed Steaks Have you ever worried that you might “mess up” your beautiful, grass-fed steak by cooking the wrong way? It’s true, grass fed beef should be cooked a little differently than conventional grain-fed beef, in order to achieve that tender, juicy experience we all love.Click the link to read how we cook our grass fed steaks.View Recipe----------------------------------------------------------------------------------"Grass Farmers" First and foremost we call ourselves “Grass Farmers”. Do you know why?It's because grass is the foundation of all animals raised on our farm.Our cows especially benefit from the dense, healthy pasture that we’ve cultivated over the years (as this is their only food source). The cows also help the grass as they eat, disturb, and fertilize! It’s a beautiful, symbiotic relationship that gets better every year.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Reserve your Bulk Beef Now!It's time to reserve a half a cow for your family! We are now taking reservations for custom Half Beef orders to be ready in September, October and December. We Make Buying in Bulk a Breeze:- Ordering made simple- Pick up and delivery options to suit you- A freezerful of delicious cuts at your fingertips Reserve today!  See Bulk Beef Dates

We birth, raise and manage pigs year round on our farm. We rotate groups of pigs throughout our forest and pasture, offering them a varied diet and ensuring the ground gets the right amount of disturbance.Throughout each month, one or more of our groups of momma sows is preparing to have their litters. We love seeing them learn to be gentle, nuturing moms!Each week we grind fresh feed to supplement the pigs' foraging, move sets to fresh ground, and do maintainance on their feeders and waterers. This month, we finished fencing in some new space just for pigs and were excited to finally move several groups into virgin forest! New PigletsOne of the most fun parts of being a "Farrow to Finish" farm is the birth of baby piglets throughout the year. Momma pigs give birth (or "farrow") under shelter in winter, and in the woods or pasture during the warm season. We always give them a big bale of hay to snuggle into and make a nest for their babies. A mother sow can give birth to as many as 14 piglets in a single litter! Move to the New Property! We introduced several sets of pigs to some new, untouched forest last week. Here, they are settling into their new space and beginning to root through the woods for snacks.We're looking forward to seeing them improve this new ground with their rooting and nesting!Recipe: Orange Pecan Glazed Pork Loin Roast This flavorful Pork Loin recipe is simple to make and totally delicious!The key is marmalade for a sweet, citrusy glaze that complements the pork.

It's Poultry Season Again!It's officially spring time here, and we have chickens and turkeys in the field, enjoying their daily grass and sunshine and eating all the bugs in sight. Almost weekly, a batch of chicks is old enough to be moved out to grass, and new day-old chicks soon replace them in the brooder. It's fun to see them grow and develop. We will have chickens and turkeys in the field until the weather turns cold again in early November. Poultry season is always busy and always exciting!-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------New Chicks in the BrooderThese chicks were born this morning. When we introduce them to their new home, they are ready to drink on their own and immediately find their food and start munching.  When they aren't snacking, they alternate between running up and down the fresh wood chips and stopping for a quick nap!-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Chicks Head Out to PastureOnce they're about 2 weeks old, the chicks have grown their feathers and are ready to go out onto fresh pasture.They enjoy the bugs, grass and sunshine, and get moved to fresh ground daily. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------RECIPE:Chicken Curry Rub Our family's favorite dry rub, delicious on beef and pork too!Toss legs and thighs with curry rub and bake in a hot oven.  Chicken skin will be crispy and the meat will be tender and falling off the bone...Recipe Here-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Upcoming Farm TourOur next Farm Tour is May 8th! Come learn about how we raise our animals in order to provide you with the highest quality meats while healing the land. As always, kids come free. Sausage Dogs are available to purchase ahead! Bring chairs or a blanket and enjoy relaxing on the farm with family or friends after the walking tour. Get Your Tickets-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------New Sausage Links - Yum!Missing Bratwurst?  Our new Country Style 4oz links are a great substitute! With a garlic and sage flavor profile, these are our current favorite "Sausage Dog", an easy weeknight supper baked, grilled or panfried.  Shop Now-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Time to Reserve!Whole Hog and Half Beef Slots now AvailableHave you considered reserving a half beef or whole hog this year? Whichever you choose, you'll have delicious, healthy cuts at your fingertips for months to come.
