10th April 2018 - Pasture Raised and GMO free meat!!

Stock up the freezer!

BBQ season is right around the corner and now would be a perfect time to stock up your freezer and be ready to go when the summer comes. We have a steer that is scheduled to go in April 18th. We have one quarter share open for purchase at $3.50/lb. hanging weight, buyer pays butcher fees. Our beef is pasture raised and free to roam on green grass. No growth hormones or steroids are given to our cattle. When grass is scarce they are fed locally grown alfalfa and no grains are fed to our cattle. We raise Wagyu Angus cross breed cattle. Wagyu is a breed from Japan that has natural marbling when they mature. Not only is it wonderful to eat, but it’s healthy for you too. Health experts have discovered the mono-unsaturated to saturated fat ratio is higher in Wagyu then in other beef and, the saturated fat contained in Wagyu is different. Forty percent is in a version called stearic acid, which is regarded as having a minimal impact in raising cholesterol levels. The profile of marbled Wagyu beef is more beneficial and healthier to human health. We breed our Wagyu bull to our Angus cows and come up with the Wagyu Angus cross. They do not have as much marbling as the full Wagyu breed but many of our customers are very pleased with the beef that they have purchased. This steer is going to Ben’s Custom Meats in Dayton. You get the choice of how you want to customize your share and you get to talk directly to the butcher with your instructions. We also have more dates scheduled for steers all the way thru this fall and you can find the dates on our website under the products tab.

Easter Hams!!!

Easter is just 2 weeks away and if you have not got decided what you are having for your Easter dinner, we have Hams at our farm store waiting to be a part of your Easter celebration or for any meal for that matter for $5.29/lb. These hams are frozen and bone in so left overs will make a delicious bean or split pea soup for later. These hams are from pigs that were raised at the ranch. The pigs were pasture raised and fed a GMO free pig food and enjoyed the country life. The hams were smoked at Voget Meats Inc. in Hubbard. They have the best by far smoked meats that I have ever tasted. The bacon that we got from them is spectacular. They have been in business for over 60 years and are noted for their German style of smoking and processing meats. We have a wide variety of sizes of hams starting at 4 pound range all the way up to 9 pounds. Contact us if you would like to have a ham. We also have many other cuts of pork and beef in our store freezer ready for purchase. Send us am email or give a call to reserve your ham for your Easter dinner or for any meal that you want!
