We had another butchering appointment come available. Need it spoken for by Friday 1-21. Willing to split this one in quarters and halves.

Never purchased beef this way? No problem. We're willing to walk you through the process and make it as seamless as possible.

PM for details on pricing and pickup or any questions you my have.

Quarter beef too much for you? No problem. We also have beef bundles available(50 lbs. of ground beef, roasts, and steaks) which equate to roughtly 1/8 of a beef. These can be delivered directly to your door depending on distance from North Manchester, IN.

❗️❗️Full beef available ❗️❗️
We recently had a couple butcher appointments open up so we had to seize the opportunity. This has left us with a full beef that needs a home. Will sell in quarters or halves but would prefer to sell as full beef.

Support your local farmers and stock your freezer up.

Why buy from us?

🥩Our beef is all born and raised directly on our farm in North Manchester, IN.
🥩We pasture raise and corn finish to produce best marbling.
🥩No artificial growth hormones used ever.
🥩SAVINGS… the price per pound of our beef usually ends up being less than half of what you will pay in the grocery store.

PM us for details.

Hay making in northeast Indiana always has its challenges. This year has been especially challenging. This week we are fighting armyworms. They have moved in the past few days and if not controlled they will take the whole crop in a matter of days. Look closely in picture 3 and see how many you can count.

After a few cold snowy days the sun is out and our new hay seeding is loving every bit of it. ☀️

We take a lot of pride in the quality of our hay and new field establishment is the first step in that.

There is a lot of prep work that goes into getting a field to produce high quality hay our customer expects from us year after year.

This field has been:
✅ Soil sampled
✅ Fertilized
✅ Limed
✅ Disced and packed
✅ Seeded

The rows you see are the oats we use as a nurse crop to keep the weed pressure down while the alfalfa and orchardgrass get established.

The oats are baled early summer and then fed to our cattle.

A new field will typically not produce a horse quality hay crop for us until the following year of establishment.

Follow along as this field takes off and grows! 🌱

Some gorgeous 3rd cutting alfalfa/orchardgrass was put on the ground tonight. This field was seeded this spring and is already producing high quality tonnage that would be perfect for any animal. You don’t want to miss out on this hay. Will have pricing available once baled. Stay tuned.

There’s just something satisfying about a freshly mowed field of hay.

Don’t forget to get in touch with us about your hay needs before winter. We’ve got some nice second cutting available that won’t last long. Pm us for details.

Wow that’s one good lucking stand of hay!!! This beautiful 2nd year alfalfa stand was cut just 25 days ago. It’s amazing what a little moisture, heat, and great fertility will do in just a short time. The hay off of this field will be available for purchase here soon. Please follow along and get yours while you can.

Did you know here at Cripe Family Hay & Herefords all of our first cutting hay goes into round bales and is fed to our cattle. Since first cutting is typically a lower quality cutting and better suited for cattle. This allows us to be sure that the following higher quality cuttings(2, 3, 4) are made into small squares and sold to our customers who expect only the best. First cutting is all wrapped up quite literally and we will have some nice premium alfalfa orchardgrass bales coming soon. Be sure to get your name on the list for bales from these next cuttings. Enjoy a few pictures from the busy last month below.
