  • Farming: We farm 3,800 acres on a 2-year rotation. We are experimenting with grazing dry land cover crops. The rest of our farming is haying forage crops for winter feed, using mostly brand-new John Deere equipment.
  • Retail: We market our beef directly to consumers and have a weekly slaughter schedule. Customers can pick up their orders at the ranch or have it shipped to their front door via our website. We build our own insulated boxes and store packaged meat at the ranch in a large walk-in freezer.
