I am completely humbled and honored by the response we’ve received this year for our beef. We are sold out for this season. We will have more available in June of 2021 and our herd size is doubled so there should be plenty to go around.
I can’t thank you enough for the response and support of the community wanting to buy local and “Know your farmer, know your food”.
I hope this finds you well and that you’re staying healthy and positive during this time of social distancing. By now, if you’re a previous customer you’ve most likely received our brochure letting you know we’re now accepting reservations for our beef.
The response has been wonderful! We’re so very thankful that you choose to support your local farms. Right now we have 1 full cow, an 1/8th and a 1/4 left in inventory. The full cow could of course be split in to smaller shares. The cows will head to Smuckers Meats in Mount Joy on June 2nd and will be ready to be picked up most likely the second week in June. Those of you who have ordered– I will keep you posted on exact dates.
The cows are enjoying beautiful green pastures this spring and we’re thankful to now how our watering system up and running. Now I just hope we start to see more sunshine for the solar aspect of it all! This watering system allows us to divide our pastures up in to smaller sections which ensures that there is more of an even grazing pattern (cows like to go and return to the same spots to graze the “good grass” if you let them. Kind of like eating their “dessert” over and over before eating their “veggies”), better distribution of the “outgoing matter” from the cows and will continue to improve our soil which then continues to improve the forages that our cows consume. It’s quite an interesting and symbiotic relationship and never ceases to amaze me.
Again, thank you for supporting our farm! And if you’re on the fence (pun intended) about ordering- I wouldn’t wait! We’ve doubled the size of our herd for next year, but the next round of cows won’t be ready until June 2021.
In a world that’s unpredictable at the moment, I’m certain it’s hard to feel ready for grilling season or planning ahead, but alas, here we are. Our cows will be headed to the butcher in the beginning of June and will be ready to be picked up mid-June. We are in the midst of accepting reservations for beef. Details on pricing and reserving your beef online can be found here.
If you remember from our last post, we’re now offering a 10% military discount going forward. I’d like to expand that in this time of uncertainty to have it include our essential personnel. Without you, I don’t know where we’d be. Thank you so much for selflessly giving your time to help others in need.
