The Corvallis Indoor Winter continues for the next two weeks and, yes, we will be there. See our “Current Inventory” page for our selections.

Four more calves arrived at the farm today. They will be ready for processing in about 20 months. Our daughter is doing a great job raising the calves this year. They are raised on milk for 8 weeks and then weaned. At about 2 weeks of age, they begin to nibble on grass. Our daughter makes halters for the young calves and tethers them around the yard and barnyard to eat the grass. When they are about 4 weeks old, the calves are moved to a community pen and graze in small paddocks. By the time they are weaned at eight weeks, the calves are hearty grass eaters.
