Wowza! It’s unusually hot and dry around here for this time of year. Very thankful for the springs, creeks and shade trees on our property. Our herd has a great place to cool off and relax…well, they are spoiled you know.
Our sons were here to help with vaccinations and once again, separating the herd into two. One side is Angus, the other Akaushi. The bulls were happy to be released to the ladies. We still have several calves remaining to be born. We are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first 100% Akaushi calf to be born; should be any day now! I’m hoping it’s a bull. The farm is lively with all of the little ones running and playing together, and a large percentage of them are at least 75% Wagyu/Akaushi. Calves are so cute!
We’ll have a fresh supply of beef mid-June. We sell both grass and grain finished. Mid-July we will have two steers available, one grain finished, the other grass finished. The grain finished steers remain on pasture but are fed a custom blend of grain twice daily. We don’t sell beef that has been given antibiotics or added hormones.
I’ll be adding some new items on the website as well, and hopefully, include some new recipes for you to enjoy. As you all are aware, prices on everything has risen, but we’re doing our best to keep our beef at an affordable price.
We use organic fertilizer on our pastures, and will also be adding a diverse cover crop which helps rebuild the soil, producing healthier, sustainable food for our cattle. Due to the very high cost of chemical fertilizer, producers who usually rely on it are turning to organic options which are causing a backlog on availability and deliveries. None of it is inexpensive or a quick fix, but once regenerative farming practices are established, well, it’s just better for everyone.
Our bee hives are busy doing their thing, and though we had hoped to have honey by mid-June, it looks like it will be closer to July…when it’s really hot to work those hives! I will update the stock once we have it ready. Our honey is all natural goodness!
Some animal(s) broke into our chicken run and killed 10 of the 30. Five of them were producing eggs, the others were young ones. Needless to say, our egg production dropped significantly. The young ones should start producing later this month, or the first part of July. We sell them at the Frankston Farmers Market, so please visit us and all of the other vendors Saturdays, 9-1.

Prayers lifted for you all to remain healthy and strong. Give thanks for the freedoms we enjoy, and for those who risk their lives for that cause. God bless the USA!
