Lazy days on the farm.

We have recently changed our beef program around & are going back to a small cow/calf operation with our Hereford cattle. The herefords are known for their grazing ability, tender flavorful beef & even temperaments. We have some wonderful cows in our herd. We will be selling the calves as feeders at about 7 months old. Currently we have a young bull out with the cows.

elmoWe have been raising beef since we went out of the dairy business in 1986. We began with a cow/calf operation then after several years began “finishing” them & marketing them for retail. We are now switching back to the cow/calf program to help simplify our lives a bit!

We pride ourselves on the fact that we grow happy, healthy beef animals in a very humane environment.

Flossie, the cow we have in our Livestock Barn, was born a twin & her mom would only take care of her sister & not her. This is not uncommon in the cow world & we don’t hold it against the cow. Because of this however, we had to bottle raise Flossie & she was in our Livestock Barn as a small calf & met all our visitors so she is very comfortable with this now. She is actually due to calve in August & we are really hoping for a heifer calf so we can make her as friendly as her mom & use her with the public in the Livestock Barn too! Cross your fingers…..
