Reservations are available now and are limited!
Beef and Pork Available Fall:

We will have a limited number of Beefs and Porks for fall freezer fillers!

We sell our beef and pork a little different than most farms do......we guarantee the amount in pounds of actual cuts your putting into your freezer when you buy a whole, half, quarter, or eighth of an beef or pork for your family.

Most farms selling in the market place use the term, HWT, or Hanging Weight of the dressed Carcass.....this is the amount you will pay on before it is cut into the cuts on your order..... you will typically pay $ per pound of HWT plus the processing/harvest fees......and the processor fees will add $ to your final cost per pound in the freezer.....along with the genetics of the livestock and how it was raised, can leave several differences in how your final cost plays out......farm to farm, processor to processor...... pounds in your freezer can be drastically different.....this is why we guarantee you will put at least 200 lbs in your freezer from a half of beef or at least 120 lbs in your freezer from a whole hog based on typical standard cuts. 
New Feed Mill, LF Feeds LLC
 
We, Jay and Valorie along with neighbor farmer Darren, have purchased the longstanding well known Cook's Feed Mill in Bismarck, and are making custom rations using locally grown grains for Horses, Cattle, Pigs, Sheep, Goats, and Chickens. 

If you know of anyone feeding livestock for personal use or for selling meat to the public like we do, and would like a trustworthy feed maker, have them contact Jay at 501-304-4323 to learn more about the feeds we make and how we can help......all of us livestock producers need good reliable, affordable, and trustworthy feed products and this is the main reason we have joined up to purchase the feed mill and work with other local farmers so that we all can have the best!
New Normal

"When is the new normal going to get here?"......never said the cow to the pig"

Here at the farm we are steadily rolling with flow though all the changes and challenges that Covid-19 has brought to us all, and it is our hope that as we all reach for new normals of daily life we can all see the good in each other and how we are all in this together....like it or not.....we are, and it is going to take everyone working together to make it to a new normal!

We have been trying to pace ourselves with the daily schedule and challenges the uptick in demand has brought to the farm and work load, most days are 12 hours or more and then you feel like there is so much more that needs done.....

Today has been good so far! We slept in, till 5, and enjoyed a little slower pace this morning.

Since it is raining, which we needed rain for the grass and garden, we have spent the morning getting house picked, sending this email out to all of you, along with catching up on the farms emails, online store, and book work......we get behind on inside work when its not raining....

Thank you for farming with us and eating local!  


Thanks,
Jay & Valorie Lee
