Grassfed Beef
Reserve Spring Beef
Ready In June and July

Order Online!

So… this email is a bit over due, but for good reasons. We have been working on the farm website… www.wintersgrassfarm.com to get it set up so that we can now except orders online! We don’t have the payment processor set up yet, so we are not taking payments online currently, that will be coming soon. However! If you are interested in reserving a quarter, half, whole beef cow, or any of the other smaller beef bundles, you can now place your order through the website! No need to print out and snail mail an order form anymore! Because the payment processor is not yet set up I am not requiring a down payment for beef orders this year. Simply select what you want, choose either spring or fall beef if you are getting a quarter, half, or whole cow, then fill out the relevant information and place your order! I’m hoping this will help make things simpler and easier for you!

 

Growing the best Grassfed Beef

One thing we have found to greatly improve the quality of grassfed beef is to only send cows to the butcher that have been grazing on spring and summer grass. The beef has more flavor and is more tender due to the cows fattening up on the rich lush grass. Just like the best milk comes from cows grazing on the fast growing spring grass, I think we can get some the best finished beef after they have been fattened on the same spring grass. Because of that we have been moving away from late fall butchering and towards several summer butcher dates.

 

Spring Beef will be going to the butcher June 5th and will be ready June 24th for pickup here at WintersGrass Farm.  Limited number available.

 

Fall Beef will be going to the butcher September 28 and ready for pickup October 7th here at WintersGrass farm

 

In the meantime, if you need something to keep you going until your bulk beef is ready, then make sure to check out the mixed beef and ground beef bundles. Available anytime.

Idling the Pastured Pork.

There is both good and less good news here. We are taking a break from the pastured pork this year, but for a good reason! Charles Pilbeam, who has been raising the pork we sell, wanted to get more experience in the pig business before finishing his last year of collage. So this summer Charles will be working with a friend, Jordan Green of J & L Farm down in Edinsburg Virginia. Jordan Green raises hundreds of pastured pigs from farrow to finish each year and has been taking the pastured pig model to the next level. I’m excited to see Charles take this opportunity to learn from one of the best and hopefully apply his learnings to his farm when he returns.

 

If you need some pork I do have some half pigs available from last fall. Shoot me an email and I’ll let you know what is available.

 

Thanksgiving Turkeys

 

We will be raising turkeys again. I will be opening orders sometime in August.

 

Return of Raw milk

 

Bet Turner is just days away from having his NYS raw milk permit. I will send out more info about Ben and his farm on Monday. He is located just south of Ilion and many of you will even recognize the farm.

 

Going forward

The main focus of WintersGrass Farm will be producing the very best local grassfed beef that we can. There are many farms that currently attending farmers markets and other events that sell beef by the individual cuts. We want to help those of you who prefer to have a well stocked freezer. So with the exception of ground beef WintersGrass Farm will be primarily selling bulk beef (quarters, halfs, and wholes) as well as the smaller 25lb bundles.


Delivery coming soon!

For the 25lb bundles we are looking into local delivery options and possibly mail order options as well. If you are someone who would like to buy from us but are not local we may have some options for you soon! Working on details but we’ll have more on this by July.

 

Over the summer we will be putting out some of our favorite recipes as well as the best ways to cook good grassfed beef. Stay tuned for that!

If you enjoy quality grassfed beef, if you value keeping your foodshed close to home, and if you enjoy having your freezer well stocked with meats that you know where it came from! Then make sure to get your order in!

Sincerely,
Jordan Winters
