Natural Beef & Locker Lamb MeatGrass-fed Genetics
All of our cattle and sheep are hormone and antibiotic free, and raised on grass pastures and hay. The lambs are given a natural grain supplement as they grow.
The steers are American Shorthorns, which is one of the traditional meat breeds of American cattle. They are known for natural marbling under grass fed conditions. This results in a steer that has all the healthy qualities of a natural grass fed steer, but the tenderness and marbling of a corn fed feedlot steer. The Shorthorn cattle are a calm breed and ours are raised under low stress conditions, which also helps to differentiate our grass fed steers from those typically offered for sale. In addition our steers are antibiotic and hormone free.
The spring calves are typically marketed at a year & a half of age in the fall; however we do have some born at differing times of the year, so they are maturing at other times of the year. Because we have selected for larger framed cattle, ours reach market weight at a younger age than many other cattle.
The steers can be purchased “on the farm” for you to transport to a butcher of your choice, or you can purchase part or all of a steer to be picked up as packages of cut & wrapped meat from Mt. Angel Meat Company in Mt. Angel, OR. We sell meat by the whole steer, half of a steer, or by “split quarter” of a steer. (We do not sell individual steaks, ribs, roasts, etc.)
*We are sold out of beef for 2016. We are taking orders for 2017 and will have increased availability due to an increase in our cow herd.
Suffolk sheep are the traditionally dominant American meat breed of sheep, raised for the quality of their meat, rather than for the spinning quality of their wool.
Our sheep are larger than average in overall size--the lambs are larger when born, and they grow rapidly to reach their market weight of 150# to 180# by 4-5 months of age. (Many lambs from other flocks are marketed at 120# to 130# at 6-7 months of age). With ours you get larger lamb chops and roasts, etc. while they are still quite tender because they are as young or younger than traditional market age. In addition our market lambs are antibiotic and hormone free. Our lambs are marketed in late summer to early fall.
Lambs can be purchased “on the farm” for you to transport to a butcher of your choice, or you can purchase a whole lamb or one half of a lamb to be picked up as packages of cut & wrapped meat from Mt. Angel Meat Company in Mt. Angel, OR. (We do not sell individual steaks, ribs, roasts, etc.)
