One of the questions asked at the Grow Your Small Market Farm class was, what’s your secondary market? Penny, our instructor, didn’t like our answer of “the sale barn”.
Of course she was right. And so we set about filling out applications, jumping through hoops, paying fees, getting inspected, and cutting red tape. All of this to be allowed to sell meat out of one of our freezers on the farm.
Of the 6 feeder calves we had for sale this year, we sold all but a quarter of one. So we had that quarter inspected and properly labeled by the locker, and now we have beef bundles for sale here at the farm, along with a few individual cuts!
Pretty cool to see our name and logo on a package of beef.
So if you’re within driving distance from us and are interested in a beef bundle, shoot me an email for details.
