Homegrown Beef

We have made arrangements for our 3 Holstein steers to go to "freezer camp" in a couple of weeks. For the first time in many, many years we don't have a waiting list for our beef. In fact, we don't even have it all sold. So if you're local to us, here's your chance to buy a side (a.k.a. half) of beef. It's a bit of an investment, but you can eat out of your freezer instead of relying on Meijers. (Shall I mention here that we've not ever had any reason to recall any of our beef?)

They are always on pasture, which changes the meat into something more healthy than what you buy at the supermarket. Because we like the marbling that comes from grain fed beef, we supplement their grass diet with some of our own corn. This is not "organic" beef, but it is clean beef. No hormones, no junk food, no processed animal by-products. Just grass, corn and a mineral supplement (kinda like a multi-vitamin).

So if you're interested in eating local, please contact us by email at lonainmi at yahoo dot com.

  1. Mmmm ... love "homegrown" beef. One of our neighbours has offered us half a Scottish Highland cross heifer ... I would love to do this but we don't have the freezer space (our little freezer is stuffed full of lamb :-)!)

    Is the market different this year?
