Moving on up….

There are some exciting developments on the farm this winter!  After six years of planning, we are pleased to announce the addition of our new Pearson cattle working facilities.  Here is Buck and his shortest helper inspecting the new equipment:

IMAG0457

This was an essential step in keeping our growing herd healthy.  In 2010, we purchased 7 cows and began farming.  Just seven years later we have over 60 beef cattle on our farm.  What does this mean for our customers?  This equipment has scales which will allow us to weigh our steer and track their growth.  The feedback from that data will improve our grazing and help us finish our steers as efficiently as possible.  This is vital to the sustainability of our farm.  As always, we strive to provide a delicious and sustainable product for our customers.

new "playground" equipment

For our children….it simply means more “playground” equipment.  That is, until we tell them that they will be helping us tag and castrate this Spring.

2016….the year of the quilts!

This year I have resolved to quilt more.  I recently read a quote from someone I admire that went something like “You can have five years of experience or one year of experience five times.”  So true!  So, this year I am going to try some new things and step out of my comfort zone a little more with my quilting.  I have finished two quilts so far this year and I am loving every second of it.  JanuaryBOM-EntryPicMy other goal is to quilt through some of my growing piles of scraps!  To that end, I am participating in a fun “Block of the Month” over at Quilt Doodle Designs.  Here is a picture of the first block…..a Reindeer (Click on the photo to see it full-sized)!  Cute, huh?!

I hope 2016 is off to a joyful start for all of you!

Stay warm,

AJ

We are in the hog business now…

Lucy and Ethel

We would like to introduce our newest ladies Lucy and Ethel. These ladies should both have a litter of pigs in early July. That should allow us to have pork available in the spring of 2014.

We are introducing a new product this fall. We have Holstein steers that will yield only steaks and hamburger. Holsteins are a dairy breed and their meat is extra lean. They have been grass finished just like our Galloways. Enjoy this beef for only $3.00/lb hanging weight + $25 processing fee.
