Farm Raised Meats
We raise beef, pork, chicken and turkeys in addition to a flock of laying hens. The hens(below) provide the eggs for all of our baked goods with leftover supply available to customers.
It is possible to buy items at the farm as you need them or you may order meats by the whole, halves and quarters depending on the meat type
Our turkeys are free range once their feathers are able to shed water. We sell them frozen for Thanksgiving for pickup at your convenience or fresh turkeys are done the weekend before Thanksgiving. Fresh turkeys cost more..2016 prices were $3.50/frozen and $4.00/fresh. Our 2016 turkeys grew really fast and they quickly became bigger than most people could fit in an oven so we processed and froze all the November birds. We plan to raise turkeys in 2017 ordering them to arrive a few weeks later. Last years growing conditions and breeding? we don't know what caused it...had our birds at slaughter weeks 6 weeks ahead of schedule. Timing is a challenge which we are constantly working to shedule what we have with what our customer wants at time they want and at a price that works for both parties.
We also use our turkeys in pulled turkey smothered in our maple bbq sauce and as frozen turkey entrees complete with stuffing and gravy.
our Idaho pasture pigs are the cutest most docile addition to the farm. Bred to graze rather than to root, they also get day old treats from our commercial kitchen and grain supplement, but most of their diet is our pasture. We plan to have a few piglets available in Summer 2017. We have assorted cuts available at the farm from our 2016 animals. Our pork is used in the commercial kitchen for pulled pork and pork pie turnovers.
Our grass fed angus hereford cross beef are rotationally grazed during the pasturing season. During the winter, they have access to our previous dairy stanchion barn for shelter and have small fenced in area where they are fed and are able to roam about free. Processed at a USDA plant, they are available by halves and mixed quarters and eighths (add your name to a waiting list) or as individual cuts.
