Dale Family Farms

Dale Family Farms is a small farm owned and managed by two generations of Dales. Located in South Central Kansas, we are striving to be sustainable. To do this, we have learned that we must better utilize our resources through improved grazing practices and reduced reliance on fuel and equipment. Over the last few years, we have realized that letting our animals remain in their natural environment doing what they do best, grazing, will be our key to sustainability.

Our beef comes from cattle that are finished on a strict forage diet of legumes, grasses, and forbs. The beef we sell contains no synthetic growth hormones and no antibiotics. When prepared properly, we have found that grass-finished beef is as tender as grain fed beef with a much richer, fuller, beef flavor. Beef is available by the cut, wholes, halves and quarters.

Laying hens are allowed to free range during the day, foraging for green grass, seeds and insects.

Broilers are given fresh pasture every day and can't even be compared to the industrial chickens you find in the store. Because of state statutes, broilers can be picked up on the farm.

Turkeys are also allowed to free range often traveling more that a quarter mile from their roost to forage. They are available for the holiday season. Like chickens, they must be picked up on the farm.

In 2010, pigs were added to the farm. Our hogs are also pastured and allowed to roam the tree rows near their pen, digging up roots and grass to supplement their diet. Pork is available by the cut, whole or half.

Lard saved from our hogs is used to make a variety of homemade soaps.

Currently, we coordinate deliveries to the Kansas City area, the Wichita area, Pratt, Greensburg, Dodge City, Lindsborg, McPherson and Kingman. Call if you would like to make arrangements. There is a nominal delivery fee.
