The farmer uses his pitchfork to move hay, straw or other materials from one place to another. Much like the pitchfork our blog is designed to throw ideas, stories, advice, and our experience from us to you. I hope that you find this blog educational, entertaining, and practical as you spend a day or so on our farm.

Beef prices continue to climb!
Yesterday I was listening to the market report on the radio and feeder cattle prices had hit $1.77/lbs which is a record high price. I am amazed at how the cattle market is so high this winter and historically prices always go up in the spring with grass greening up. High beef prices make it hard on families to afford buying much beef. Some alternatives to beef would be pasture raised pork, chicken or turkey. These products have not seen such a climb in cost over the last few months and could be a affordable short term meat choice. We have all four meat products available this year for your family to enjoy. We are currently getting ready to order meat chicks for those of you that would like to enjoy pasture raised poultry meat. If you would like to place a pre-order please let us know, and we will work with your family to accommodate its needs.
