Our herd is small, which allows us to give the animals the type of focused attention that it takes to raise and finish steers on grass in Northeast Iowa. In fact, our herd is so small that we only finish 3-5 steers per year! We like to say we have “small batch beef” because of the herd size and attention our animals receive.

Believe it or not, it’s actually fairly rare to find beef that is 100% grass fed as most producers will finish steers with at least some grain. We are proud of the fact that our calves are born on pasture and our beef animals spend their entire lives grazing sweet grasses on our farm and neighboring farms. They are moved frequently to ensure access to the type of high quality feed that leads to marbling and good fat in a grass finished steer. In the winter they enjoy high quality stored feed (hay and haylage).

Our herd is certified organic and never receives growth hormones or antibiotics.

Our beef is 100% grass fed and grass finished, making it a nutritional powerhouse! Health benefits of 100% grass fed beef include brain boosting omega 3 fatty acids and decreased risk of heart disease.

Grass Fed Beef Cuts

We have a retail meat freezer outside on pizza nights that is stocked with our beef, pork and lamb. Pick up some of our meat and eat well all week! You can either pick out what you want when you’re out or email us in advance of pizza night and we’ll have it boxed up and ready for you when you come.

Wholes, halves and quarters

 Every year we butcher 3-5 steers and this is your chance to reserve a quarter, half or whole of one of them for your freezer! Reservations and deposits can be made through our online farm store. We deliver the animal to the locker and send you an invoice for the hanging weight of your portion of the animal. You call the locker to provide your cutting instructions, pick up your meat and pay the locker for processing. Your processing bill depends a bit on what you have them do. We can provide tips for minimizing processing costs.

A benefit of purchasing beef in this way is that you have access to the heart, liver, tongue, shanks, soup bones, which adds over $250 of value to your purchase of an entire steer! Customers purchasing halves and quarters also have access to their portion of these bonus cuts. This is the most economical way to purchase our beef. Please note that we do not ship.
