We transitioned our family farm from conventional to organic in the mid 90's. Dave always preferred livestock to cash crops growing up on his parents farm and the farm switched entirely from cash crops to livestock in 2006. We sell freezer beef from our herd of Registered Dutch Belted Galloways. This breed is easily recognized for their unique white "belt". The neighbors call 'em the "oreo cows"! Their white belt and shiny black coats are a pretty sight on our green pastures.The breed thrives on grass and they grow a second coat in the winter to give them about 4,000 hairs per square inch! This protects them without adding the fat that other breeds do. The meat is tender, tasty, and of course like all grassfed beef, low in total and saturated fats but higher in total omega 3's and CLA. We sell beef by the quarter, half and whole, with your choice of three area butchers who will custom slaughter to your specifications. A certified organic processor is available for an additional fee for those who prefer that.
Our Cornish Cross broilers live in shelters that are moved daily on our lush organic pasures. These fine birds are fed a healthy ration of corn, oats, soybeans, kelp and other nutritious ingredients to have them to 5-6 lbs, in 6-8 weeks. As a whole, fresh, bird they are wonderful on the grill, in the crock pot or can be cut up and frozen.
We also have hair sheep that we sell for slaughter. These are either bought as young lambs and finished on our pastures or are born and raised here on the farm. Our customers rave about the taste and tenderness of these grass fed lambs.
We are looking into selling packaged beef and do have eggs available most of the time. Our entire family, Dave, Julie, and children, Amanda, Nick, and Leah are involved in producing the best in organic beef, lamb, and broilers for our customers.
Our beef is sold by hanging weight, which is roughly 550 lbs. per steer. A quarter weighs about 135#. (Actual "cutout weight" is about 2/3 of hanging weight as aging and bone removal lower the weight). The lambs are butchered in the fall after a summer on pastures. The broilers are 5 and 6 lbs. and we ask that you pick them up the same day as they are processed as we don't have refrigerator or freezer space for 100-200 birds at at time! We encourage farm visits but ask that you call ahead first
