Wildflower Farm includes an aquaculture/aquaponic system that feeds the vegetables, a greenhouse, a straw bale barn and the rest of the fields.
Our beef operation evolved from our family dairy farm in 1986. The farm’s abundant high-quality meadows, pastures and crystal-clear water are ideal for the production of exceptionally fine quality beef. Our main herd consists of about 50 head of both Angus and Hereford cattle. We also produce a limited amount of crossbreed Angus and Jersey for those who prefer a deeper beef flavor.
Our cattle spend the spring and summer with free access to our woods and pastures and are rotated onto our alfalfa and clover fields in the fall or in preparation for sale. Finishing beef cattle on legumes such as clover produces the most flavorful and tender beef available.
We also produce a uniquely flavored beef on special order. These select steers are finished on sprouted, fermented barley, as well as clover. The result is a malty, Colby type of flavor that has to be tried to be appreciated.
All of our beef is completely naturally produced. We use no hormones, all of our fields get only organic fertilizers, we use no GMO forage crops, and feed absolutely no corn.
The minimum order is a half steer. We can arrange to have it cut and wrapped to your specifications. At this point we have a waiting list of about eight months. Our steers have a live weight of approximately 1,000 pounds and yield a carcass weight of about 550 pounds. That carcass weight will yield about 450 pounds of packaged meat.
