Last call for beef by the quarter for Jan 2015!

We have three more quarters available, but if you want one, let us know asap — the processor is coming on Wednesday the 23rd.

Our beef cattle have been raised on our Certified Organic pasture during the summer, and on our own Organic hay during the winter.

Grass-fed beef is typically leaner and more strongly flavored that CAFO-finished, grain-fed animals. The cuts also tend to be smaller than confinement beef. We have not used any antibiotics, hormones, or other medication. We have fed a mineral supplement that is not Certified Organic.

We are selling beef by the quarter. A quarter of beef is typically more than enough for 2-3 people for a year. The butcher won’t split beef up into eighths, but if you want to share your quarter with someone else you are of course welcome to make those arrangements yourself.

If you haven’t done this before, we highly recommend checking out this Honest Meat blog post about buying meat in bulk. It will tell you pretty much everything you need to know about what to expect. And, as always, we’re happy to answer any questions you might have.

You will pay us $5/lb by hanging weight (the weight before it is butchered). This is usually around 150 lbs for a quarter. From that, you’ll get around 100 lbs of meat.

You will also pay the butcher separately for the processing costs (varies depending on your specifications). These steers will be going to a different butcher than usual: Olson’s Meats in Enumclaw.

After a few days away visiting my daughter and her family I came home to find that the tomatoes in the greenhouses had been ripening well. So well that some were too ripe and squashy to be used and only a few would keep to eat fresh. In the past I have cooked them up […]

End of the Summer Harvest — one twenty two

This was our first year of ever having a garden. I learned a lot this season about gardening successes and fails. While I was determined and hopeful that I could actually get a fall garden started, getting pregnant at the end of summer kind of changed those plans. I kept putting it off and waiting […]
