Freezer beef is available in the fall of the year by reservation. The butcher comes to the farm, then sends quarters and halves to Byron Center Meats for cutting and packaging the way you want it.
Scottish Highland Cattle are an old breed native to the mountains of northern Scotland. They are distinguished by their long hair and long horns, yet they are gentle animals. The beef is extra lean, low in fat and cholesterol.
Our cattle are grass fed all year. All natural. No grain, no antibiotics, no growth hormones, no steroids. None of the stuff found in typical feedlot beef. Our cattle eat fresh grass in the summer and grass hay in the winter.
We keep our herd healthy by raising our own calves. We don't bring in calves from outside. We know each calf from birth. Heifer calves replace cows that are retiring. Bull calves grow up to become beef. We love them all.
We like to teach about care and feeding and humane treatment of farm animals. Normally calves are nursed by their mothers, but sometimes it's not possible. Bottle calves are always a big hit with kids and adults.
A wild animal park in Dallas Texas took several elephants and tigers on a tour of several state fairs through the Midwest. They asked if they could come to rest and wash their animals over a weekend. Quite an adventure!
