PRODUCTS AVAILABLE 2010
NOTE- Not all of the meats are available all of the time. Some
are more seasonal like the pork and lamb. Please contact us to find out wether the meat you are wanting is available.
Prices subject to change without notice. Note: Due to the
extreme increases in price of just about everything in the past year or two we have had to up our prices a bit this year.
We are trying to keep them reasonable but have to be able to afford to have and feed them.
The various birds are especially costly to feed as they have to have grain even though
they are out on grass. The natural minerals that we put into our feed have doubled in price in the past 1-2 yrs and
so has the price of hay due to high gas prices.
EGGS - $3 doz. These eggs come from healthy
happy pasture raised hens. The eggs are from our heritage breed chickens and not those unnatural hybrid egg laying machines
that are worn out by 1 or 2 yrs of age. We raise breeds that lay several different shades and colors of eggs so we usually
have rainbow dozens of eggs for sale. Because our birds are not hybrids their eggs are not as large but they are much
richer and the yolks more orange because they are better foragers.
PORK - We will be offering pork available in whole, halves,
and quarters. If interested please order soon. Prices will be by the hanging weight: whole-$2.25 lb,
half-$2.50, quarter-$3 lb. An average pig will dress out in the 150-200 lb range hanging weight. Price includes processing
RABBIT- Rabbit meat is available packaged whole or cut up.
We usually have grassfed rabbit available from late May to Nov or Dec depending on the weather. Note:
If it is an extremely wet year we will not put the rabbits out on grass as they do very poorly on wet ground and
wet grass. We will raise them instead in large wooden bottomed cages or stalls on the ground with lots of free
choice hay, some rabbit pellets and as much grass as possible picked by hand.
Young rabbits dress out approximately 2-3 lbs and are $3.50lb whole rabbits
Occasionally we have adult rabbits for sale also. They will dress out
at 3-6lbs depending on the breed. Please inquire about these as they are not available all of the time and are limited in
numbers. $2.50lb. Whole rabbits only.
CHICKEN- Our chickens are a tasty healthy alternative to the horribly raised, bland tasting factory farmed chicken from the store.
We raise heritage breed chickens so they are not quite as heavy as the commercial Cornish Crosses but they also don't have
the health and leg problems that plague the cornish. The meat has a much better flavor because they are not forced to grow
unnaturally fast. We hatch and raise our own chickens so we know what goes into them and the parent stock from
start to finish. We rarely lose a bird due to their extreme good health and hardiness.***NOTE*** By purchasing these
chickens you are helping to save old rare breeds that are on the verge of extinction!
Chickens are raised to approx 3-4 months and dress out about
2 1/2 to 4lbs each and are $2.50 per lb. They are packaged whole only.
NOTE : We have decided to raise some commercial type meat
chickens also as they can be raised sooner than the old breeds. They will be raised out on grass the same as the heritage
breeds and will be offered for $2 lb. They dress out approximately 3-5 lbs each.
LAMB- Our lamb is from icelandic sheep. They are a very old
breed that we raise out on grass without the need for grain. There is no gamey taste and the meat is extremely mild
and delicious tasting. You wouldn't know you were eating lamb if you tried it and weren't told what it was. Everyone
that tries it raves over the taste.
Whole lamb- $5 lb
Half lamb - $ 5.50 lb
We occasionally have some older animals that need to be culled and are available
mostly in the fall. $3lb THESE MAKE GREAT PET FOOD
NEW MEATS AVAILABLE!!!
KID GOAT- We got back into goats again in the last couple
years as we wanted to have our own milk supply again as well as some for meat. The supply of goat kids will be
very limited this year as I plan on keeping many of the doe kids this year.
Whole kid goat- $4.50lb
Half kid goat- $5lb
Since it is very hard to find totally pasture raised goats
especially dairy goats we had to buy conventionally raised ones and show them how to live without grain (not fun as
they fought me all the way!)
I still have to give them some grain when I am milking them as they
absolutely refuse to go on the milk stand without it plus they started to dry themselves up so I was forced to start them
on a small amount of it again.
Along with the grain demanding arrogant attitudes came a multitude
of other troubles. Extremely aggressive temperaments towards other goats, so much so that they killed one of the
doe kids that I had in with them, as well as bitten and torn ears and butted each other so hard that several have come up
limping. We also had 5 out of 6 of the adult does come up with abcesses. Because of these troubles all of
the goats are being kept seperate from our sheep and will not be allowed out on pasture with the sheep but instead are in
a pen by themselves. They will be fed mostly hay and a little grain.
The kids will be taken away at birth and raised on a CAE and Abcess free
program and fed pasturized milk or milk replacer and raised out with our sheep.
This will eliminate most of the health problems that the parents have and
then over the next couple of years as the doe kids grow up and start to milk I will eliminate the adults.
DUCK- The duck is from our own home raised Buff Ducks.
They are an older breed that grow quickly and are nice sized plump tasty duck when they are dressed out. They are
a very pretty pastel pinkish buff color.
They dress out at about 3 - 4 1/2 lbs ea
Whole duck-$3 lb- whole only
GOOSE- We decided to try some geese this year and like them quite
well. We only have some cross breeds right now as purebred geese are quite expensive to buy, plus we have never
had geese before and just wanted to see if we liked them or not.
They turned out to be very pleasent smart birds that are very easy
keeping and do a lot of grazing out on grass. They eat a whole lot less grain and a whole lot more grass than the ducks
do so were very pleasently surprized with them.
They also grow very quickly so make nice young meat birds.
The only fault with them is they do not produce as many eggs as ducks
do so the supply will be limited for the next few years.
We may decide to get some purebreds in the next few years but it will
take a while to decide on a breed as there are some very lovely breeds of geese out there.
Whole goose- We will be holding the price of $2 lb for 2010.
They should dress out some where about 6-8 lbs but we are not sure as we haven't used any for meat yet.
