Welcome to our website. Our family farm is a small operation located in Emery, UT that produces beef and pork. The image above is Marvin is our new Certified Black Angus bull. He enjoys life on the ranch with 35 cows and their calves.
Our cattle live on grass pasture all year and are fed organic hay in the winter when the snow is on the ground. We have steers ready and available in the fall each year. On occasion we have gaps in our production where beef isn't available for a few months. Because our beef is certified organic, it is slaughtered separate from other beef and the butcher must clean the plant and process it separate from the conventional beef.
A side will usually yield approximately 25% steaks, 25% roasts, 25% grind, and 25% bone, fat, & shrinkage. As you know it varies depending on how you have it cut, bone in / bone out. Iowa State University has a whole animal meat buying guide. This is one of the most complete guides that I have found on the web. it covers both beef and pork in detail. It is highly recommended reading for those that want to know more about buying a side of beef or pork.
If you would like certified organic beef cut, wrapped and delivered to you, please contact us. We are now taking orders for those that would like for this fall. Send us an email if you are interested. If you want to try our beef cooked to order, then take a ride up the ski lift at Alta and enjoy a juicy hamburger at Watson Shelter.
Frequently we are asked, "Why you don't expand the farm?" The farm originated as a model farm for our other passion, organic fertilizers and animal feed supplements. During the day we are mining minerals for world wide distribution. Check our day job out if you are interested, www.livearth.com.
