This year we are offering smaller orders for customers for single customers or those with no deep freezer. It will contain a variety of cuts including ground beef, stewing beef, steaks, bones and small roasts. Our ‘box-of-beef’ will actually be an 1/8 of an entire beef and will vary in size. We expect the size range to be 70-75 lbs hanging weight (probably 50-60 actual weight).
Our grass fed beef can be purchased by the side or split side (1/4 of total meat). Customers are able to communicate with the butcher and choose how they would like their beef cut up. Beef sides and split sides are sold by hanging weight. Hanging weight is approximately 60% of live weight. The amount of meat you take home is called dressed weight. The amount of dressed meat you get varies depending on how you get it butchered. Deboning and grinding typically lower the dressed weight. Dressed weight is approximately 40% of live weight. Sides average between 250 & 300 lbs hanging.
Pasture raised, GMO-free pork is available by the whole or side. Customers are able to communicate with the butcher and choose how they would like their pork cut up. Pork is sold by hanging weight. The butcher can smoke your bacon/hams and make sausage at an additional charge.
This is our first year offering grass-fed lamb from our own Katahdin sheep flock. This is the preferred breed of sheep for customers that prefer a milder tasting meat. Lamb can be purchased by the whole or side. Lambs will hang at 45-50 lbs.
The hens are talking a vacation from laying at the moment, contact us to be put on the waiting list.
Our laying hens are fed Certified Organic feed and also receive kitchen and garden scraps. In the winter months, they are kept in a coop with access to outdoors. As soon as the grass comes in the spring, they are moved around the farm in a mobile pen so that they have access to grass, herbs and bugs! Eggs are only allowed to be sold at the farm-gate. Customers can purchase 12 dozen in advance and come and get their eggs as they need them (please arrange pick-up times in advance) or can just call or e-mail the farm to see if we have any available and purchase them on the spot. The advantages of paying in advance are that we can make sure we set aside your eggs every week and that you don’t have to have cash on hand when you come to the farm.
No eggs at the moment.
