Just being summer

It's been somewhat rainy here lately, bugger of a time to get in this winter's hay. All the planted crops are growing quite nicely with all the rain and heat, but we're coming very rapidly up on combining season for the small grains.

 CSA's: this note is for you, contact us to add beef, lamb and pork to your menu, any one or all three. We have an abundance of beef ready now and 30 more by  the end of the month. We'd like to set something up for next year.

This past weekend we hosted a field tour at our farm demonstrating a University of Minnesota forage test plot; it seemed to be a well received program. Hopefully somebody retained something they can use for themselves.



Beef ready


  Hello to all,

  Just a quick note that we've plenty of beef available right now and over the next 30 days 30 more will be ready. Lambs will be ready at the end of September, so start thinking of stocking up for winter.

 Anyone who is connected to a CSA that doesn't offer beef, lamb or pork and would like that as an option please get in touch with us, we'll work with you to get a delivery and product schedule that will work for just about everyone.

 Haying has been going well for us this year, ( knock on wood) with no major break downs. We've crossed the 400 bale (big rounds) thresh hold in a 2 week time period. One of the best we've ever had, obviously we're not using the horses so far this haying season, but we'll start to get them in this next week. Mowers are ready as well as the rakes, but the Jayhawks need some help. We've asked the former owner to assist with their operational readiness, should be interesting. Several teamsters from the local club intend to come out and work with us, we're hoping to have 5 or 6 teams going by middle next week, weather permitting.
