Growth of our Land by Ranching & Silvopasture Practices

Enhances our Production of:

Livestock * Homemade Food Products * Dairy * Fruits & Vegetables * Honey

Cows

We have 2 Dexter cows, 2 Dexter heifers, and 1 Dexter Cross Cow.

Our heifer Lucy Lou will be 1 year in December. In the early part of 2022 we plan to join Lucy Lou with Charlie Brown and hopefully we will have a healthy baby in the fall! Our 2nd heifer is Penelope Lane and is just the cutest little calf ever from Miss Monaco!

Our Dexter Cross Cow (1/2 Dexter, 1/4 Low Line, 1/4 Hereford) is Miss Betty Rock. Miss Betty was born in 2019 and has calved 1 baby. We received Miss Betty from a young 4-H participant who put all whole lot of time and energy into training her. Training has made her a dream to work with! Miss Betty's baby is still owned by the 4-H young lady and is being trained for show - he is a very handsome and smart young calf. We plan to continue to breed Miss Rock with one of our 2 Dexter bulls.

We gained 2 Dexter cows in the fall from our friends down the road. Miss Music and Miss Monaco. Both of these cows are now registered under 4BR with the American Dexter Cattle Association (ADCA). It was a unique situation that brought these cows to us - one that gained us a friendship and the sweetest herd ever! 

Miss Music came with her steer calf, which we have named Woodstock (Beefcake if you ask my husband and son). His disposition is amazingly friendly and curious - trademarks of the Dexter breed. He is about half grown and we suspect will be ready for butcher in March of 2023!

Bulls

We have 2 Dexter Bulls. Mr. Charlie Brown is our red horned bull. We and our friends up north are working on registering him with the American Dexter Cattle Association (ADCA). He is the sweetest little bull who loves his chin scratches. We are excited to breed him with our Miss Lucy Lou in early 2022. 

Mr. LeDoux is our naturally polled dun colored bull. He is a big ole cuddle bug with a sweet disposition. He is currently bred to Miss Music and Miss Monaco. Mr. LeDoux is a part of the herd that came to us from our friends down the road.

For Sale

We currently do not have any cattle for sale. When we do have cattle for sale, you may purchase the cattle for butcher (pay the price of the cattle and the butcher fee) or as livestock. Prices vary based on breed and status for ADCA registration.

Dexter cattle are an amazing 1st-time cattle owner breed! Smart and gentle, this breed would be amazing for 4-H/FFA projects. The meat is a deep red color that is marbled just right - often sought out by gourmet restaurants and often preferred over Wagyu beef. Our Dexter beef is fed primarily grass and forage from the ranch. We have used some grain to do a bit of training in some cases (like when Mr. Charlie thought it would be a good idea to roam around the valley eating the nice green lawn grass at our neighbor's house). However, the grain usage is kept to a minimum (a training treat) to preserve the quality of our beef - and also the health of our cattle.

We have 2 Steers currently - 1 will be ready and is scheduled for butcher in March of 2023. The 2nd is Miss Monaco's little calf, George Strait, born in June 2022 - he's got a ways before his butcher date. If you are interested in buying him for 4-H or as a weanling, contact us.

Our Livestock

Pigs

We currently have 2 breeding pairs of pure American Guinea Hogs and 1 American Guinea Hog Cross. Miss Patty Piggy is our AGH Cross. We made the decision to keep her a part of our breeding stock based on temperament and quite honestly, her siblings were delicious. She is the sweetest pig and loves her belly scratched - if she had it her way, her belly would be scratched all day long...

Our 2 pairs of pure AGH breeding stock share the same great personality as Miss Piggy. We have one male that is about a year old, Kermit the Hog, and another that is about 9 months, Ernie. They both have quite the personalities and love their scratches and pets. Ernie is a tad shy compared to Kermit, but as sweet as can be. Both boars are still together, as they love cuddling in the sleep pile and keep each other warm. One of our females is Anabelle Sox. She has a little white spot in the shape of a heart on her nose, and white socks on her feet. She is quite the feisty girl, yet still as sweet as can be and loves to be pet. We haven't decided on a name for our second female yet - she is definitely more shy than the rest. 

We currently have 4 American Guinea Hog Cross piglet born on March 22, 2022! One female and three males (all castrated). The parents are Miss Patty Piggy (AGH Cross) and Kermit the Hog (AGH). 

Weaned Piglets (8 weeks of age): Available starting May 17, 2022

Sheep

We currently do not have any American Blackbelly Sheep. A registered breeding pair will eventually return to the ranch as, regardless, of age or gender, these sheep taste amazing! In addition to tasting fantastic, the sheep did a fantastic job mowing the front lawn, were social with the horses, cattle, and pigs, and have helped grow some pasture out in the far fields.

We do not have any Sheep for sale at this time.

Turkeys

We currently have a new breeding pair of Black Slate Turkeys - a heritage bird that produces a smaller but delicious tasting meat. We hope to begin hatching early spring.

Chickens

We have a great variety of chickens - most of which are heritage dual purpose birds. We occasionally will purchase cornish hens - fast growing, but delicious, meat birds - for processing and sale. 

Our chickens are great egg layers - most of the time. We have barred rocks, wyandottes, leghorns, orpingtons, and easter eggers just to name a few. Our chickens help in the garden and orchard when they are needed. The chicken coops are quite large and designed to try and keep the hawks out. When we are able, we let the chickens roam outside of the coop - but those hawks are just relentless. Braeden's winter project is to make some chicken tractors for spring.

We have 4 regular egg customers, which is keeping us at a perfect egg level. However, when we do have extra eggs, mainly in late spring into the summer, we will have them for sale at our Mobile Market.

We are working on perfecting our poultry processing and packaging capabilities for sale to the public. Depending on the time of year, the processed birds might be meat birds (such as cornish cross) or heritage meat birds (such as orpingtons, brahma, wyandotte, and New Hampshire reds)
