Cool spring mornings with the warm sun glistening off the dew on the grass, new calves being born, and it being so quiet that all you hear are the birds in the trees along with the munching sounds of cattle on a new section of grass. It just feels like a good day. 😊
The time of year we look forward to all winter, putting the cattle out in fresh grass. That was Friday. Today Maggie was helping put out temporary fence lines so I can move them to a fresh paddock tomorrow morning.
Doesn’t that steak on the grill look good? Is this spring weather making you think of grilling? We will have lots of beef available next week. Message or call us for more information.
Celebrating St Patrick’s Day with our first two calves of 2022! A new momma and a veteran on this warm almost spring day.
There is nothing better on a raw day than a nice hot bowl of beef stew. We can help you out with that. We have beef going to butcher in early March if you would like to purchase some. We have two halves available. You think that may be more beef than you want to purchase at one time? Not a problem, we also sell it by a mixed fifty pound box or by the cut. Let us know and we can help take care of that beef craving you have now. Locally raised Artesian Springs Farm beef, USDA inspected.
On a cold snowy day a fun thing for me is to cook in the fireplace. This is some chili made with some of our beef. If it’s over the fire or on your stove how about some locally grown beef for dinner?

The temperature had risen to 40 as I was walking out the door this morning to take care of livestock. A brisk morning is a sure sign that Autumn has arrived in case you were doubting it. In case you are trying to hold on to the the last of summer.
While I like all the seasons, well except maybe when summer is to hot, Autumn is my favorite. It’s a season of reward as the waning days of sunlight bring us to harvest time. Farmers are harvesting crops to store up. We are seeing pumpkins, squash and those end of the season tomatoes and other more summer crops. Apples and grapes are out in abundance. We see the results of work done over the months. It’s a busy time of year.
Yet here I sit watching and listening to cows graze for awhile. More work is calling but I’m going to take a few moments to enjoy the season. To watch the cows and listen to their contented grazing. To see the heavy dew glisten in the sun and to enjoy the warmth of the sun on my back. To just sit and harvest some joy. Joy that the Lord blesses us with if we can stop for a moment and see it.
How do you celebrate Labor Day on the farm? Why you do labor of course. Livestock still needs to be taken care of. They aren’t very good at celebrating holidays. That said, you don’t farm unless you enjoy working. So today I took care of cattle, enjoyed watching a dozen turkeys moving around some pastures and finally winding the day down with some ASF grass fed beef NY Strip steaks on the grill.
So what’s for dinner at your house? How about some beef kabobs with some nice ASF grass fed beef? Just about ready to pull these from grill. If you want some
For your house we have cuts and 50 pound packs available. If you want a half a beef we will have more in October.
Nothing like beef from your local farmer. We have halves of beef available now. Does that sound like too much beef for your needs?

Contact Rich or Josh if you are interested.

Quiet moments are sometimes few and far between. Decided to bring a coffee out this morning and enjoy the quiet chewing sounds after moving them into a fresh paddock.
As our family is celebrating new life in Christ on this Resurrection Sunday I went out to feed to witness another new life being born. About 30 minutes old in this picture.
Anyone up for some sunbathing at -1 out? The cattle are enjoying it!
Turn up your volume to hear what I do. Looking over the fields we just planted and listening to the sounds here are making it difficult to get back to work. But work
I must so break time is over.
