Monthly Update - March 2015

SPRING IS HERE!
New chicks have arrived, piglets were born earlier this month, and we moved some of our mother cows and little calves to our farm. It's a great time to visit and see all of the new animals! We also have video of them here:

Spring Piglets
Slow-Growing Cornish Chicks
Spring Cows & Calves

ARE YOU A SUSHI FAN?
Have you made it yourself before? Whether you're a seasoned professional or a newbie who wants to try, our Wild-Caught Alaskan Salmon is a great addition because our salmon is not only delicious, it's SUSHI GRADE!* Separate filets ($15/lb.) and 20 pound cases available. Stop by the store to purchase yours - we're open today until 5:30!

(*MUST be thawed in the refrigerator.)

BULK ORDERS
Our next bulk orders will be available April 9 & 11. Deposits are due this Saturday, March 21 so don't delay! Corriente & Angus beef, pork, lamb and Alaskan Salmon are all currently available. Do you want to try our meat before you make a big purchase? Stop by our farm store this weekend and pick up some separate cuts.

RAW HONEY
Do you suffer from spring allergies? Did you know taking a tablespoon of raw local honey will help reduce springtime allergy symptoms? By eating the honey everyday you are gradually vaccinating yourself. We carry delicious, local raw honey from Neighborhood Beekeeping and have both 8 ounce ($6) & 16 ounce ($9) bottles in stock!


SEE OUR SPROUTS!
We made an amateur film about our greenhouse in 2012 and with the help of our buddy, Rob, we just updated it with a condensed version that gives an overview of how we grow sprouts & some of our animals that eat them. Currently we're growing a mix of barley, wheat, oats & sunflower. If you want to see more stop by during our farm hours - Shayn would be happy to show you how it all works!

Feeding Sprouts

SPRING PLANTING
Farmer Shayn & the boys have been preparing fields for planting. One day little Tony even got in on the action. We really love working with the horses - they help keep us connected to the land & animals we take care of. (L to R: Duke, King & Tony)

Monthly Update - February 2015

Here's an update of what's been going on this month at the farm:

NEW VIDEOS
We have a couple of new videos on our YouTube channel for you to check out -
A Morning At The Farm
How We Farm

BULK ORDERS
Our next bulk orders will be available March 5 & 7. Deposits are due this Saturday, February 14 so don't delay! Corriente & Angus beef, pork, lamb and Alaskan Salmon are all currently available. Do you want to try our meat before you make a big purchase? Stop by our farm store this weekend and pick up some separate cuts.

NEW CALVES
These little guys were born a few weeks ago. One nice thing about our mild winter this year is we don't worry as much about them staying warm.

NEW RAW MILK BILL
Are you missing raw milk? We are too! We have numerous people ask us about it each week. Know that we are still actively working to have it at our farm again and we're really hoping to have a solution soon.

We also wanted to make you aware of a bill relating to raw milk that is currently being discussed. Utah House Bill 104 would make it legal for individuals to participate in a cow share program, which was deemed illegal in 2007. You can follow along and get more information on the following Facebook pages:
Utah HB 104
Utah Alliance for Raw Milk

UTAH STORIES
Farmer Shayn, Farmer Grandin and our farm were featured in the January issue of Utah Stories - they even made the cover! It's a great article about grass farming amid increasing development in Salt Lake County. You can read it online here:
Grass Fed Beef Revolution in Utah - Part 1
Grass Fed Beef Revolution in Utah - Part 2

GENTLE GIANTS
Farmer Shayn and his right hand guys, King & Duke. It's much more fun to work on the farm with them - tractors just don't have as much personality!

FARM STORE
With the unusually warm weather right now we have plenty of eggs in stock. Our hens are loving it! Stop by on the following days:
Thursdays 2:00-5:30pm
Saturdays 9:00am-12:00pm

HAPPY EATING!
Shayn & Kristen

Bulk Lamb & Salmon

Yeah...it's been WAY too long since we posted anything here! What can we say? The farm + a new baby = busy, busy, busy. :)

Just popping in with a couple of great additions. We're now offering lamb in bulk quantities, as well as Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. Both are so good and available in our farm store if you'd like to try it in smaller quantities first. Check out the information below:

Extreme Cheapskates

The time has come! Cable channel TLC paid us a visit earlier this summer to film for an upcoming episode of their show "Extreme Cheapskates". Farmer Shayn, as well as some of our animals, will be making an appearance and their episode airs tomorrow night!

Check it out on TLC at 9/8 CT, which we *think* is 7pm here in Utah. Check your local listings.

The episode features Jordan, who comes to our farm to learn about raising her own food. It should be fun to see how it all turns out after an entire day of filming!
