(NOTE ADDED 11/19. We’ve almost sold all the packages. Lordy, that was fast. I need to take inventory tomorrow for a better estimate of the number of packages we actually have. If we still have some left, I’ll delete this note!)
The farm: We make sure the steers have 18 months of natural living—outside, with shelter available in the winter, and shade during the heat of the summer.
The steers: They were bottle-fed as calves, with a bit of grain. Then it was nothing but grass all summer and fall. Then they ate hay during the winter, with a small amount of grain for energy during the cold. Since May of this year, all they ate was fresh grass. No growth hormones given. No non-theraputic antibiotics.
The beef: Tender and great-tasting. You’ll find it hard to go back to the beef you buy in stores.
The package: We sell the beef in 25-pound packages. Half of the package is roasts and steaks, the other half is ground beef. Additional ground beef will be available for purchase.
Ordering: Call to place your order, or respond by email. Let us know when you’re available to come pick up your meat, and we’ll set something up–weekdays or weekends—it’s up to you! The farm is 60 miles SE of the Twin Cities, on the way to Rochester. (Sorry–we don’t ship meat. Just too expensive.)
