Monthly Update - May 2015

BRAND NEW CALF
This sweet, little heifer calf was born to one of our milk cows this week. We're glad she arrived in between thunderstorms. No, we're not selling milk yet but we are continually working on our own dairy. We hope to be up and running by the end of the summer.


BULK ORDERS
Our next bulk orders will be available JUNE 25 & 27. Deposits are due Saturday, JUNE 6! Corriente & Angus beef, pork, 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.

"ORANGE" YOU GLAD YOU EAT UNM EGGS?
Because seriously, look at their color! Can't you tell these come from happy hens? The more grass a hen chooses to eat the darker the yolk is. They're nutrient-rich, full of flavor, and way better than any egg you can get at a grocery store. Pick up a dozen or two at the farm - $5.00/dozen


"DO YOU SELL ORGANS & BONES?"
This is the one question we are asked the most, so we now have a separate page on our website with all the information. Everything - head to tail - that we can use from our animals we have in the store. Interested in making beef broth? Want to add some ground heart to your favorite ground beef meal? This is the place to go! ORGANS & BONES

THE OTHER WHITE MEAT?
One is a beef rib steak, the other a pork shoulder steak. Can you tell which is which? Not all cuts are quite this dark, but real pastured pork is hardly "the other white meat". (Answer: pork on the left, beef on the right.) Pork shoulder steak is our new favorite cut we carry in our store - tender and delicious.

Monthly Update - April 2015

WHY IS OUR PORK BETTER?
Farmer Shayn explains why and shows our pigs acting like, well, pigs! Pastured pork without GMOs, cured without sodium nitrate, and sausages without msg, bha or bht. Plus, BACON. Need we say more? Watch it here and then come by the farm and pick up some pork to try!

Why Our Pastured, Natural Pork is Different

SPRING = LAMBS
We love spring on the farm because it means new life and new animals. We've had so many lambs born in the past few weeks. There have been a few we needed to intervene and help, but most of them are doing well.

DO WE HAVE CHICKEN?
Not yet, but we will soon! Did you know our farm is the only place in the state where you can buy authentic, LOCALLY raised, PASTURED poultry? We recently moved our birds out on grass and they're doing so well - we plan on having chicken available beginning in June.   We'll send an email out and update our Facebook page when they're ready!

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.)

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!

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!
