Fall 2010 Meat
This weekend we set slaughter dates and prices for this year. The price for the meat will remain the same at $4 a pound on the hanging weight. The processing will go up 15 cents to $1 a pound. The total will be $5 a pound on the hanging weight. We will be soon sending notice by e mail to make sure everyone is confirmed that wants meat this year. The photo was from my visit a couple of weeks ago to the herd up in Delta Junction. Pictured are some of the cows with this year's calves in one of the rotational grazing segments with the high moisture, wrapped winter hay in the foreground.
The driveway to the farm is almost hidden so we solved that problem by planting a 24 foot carrot at the entrance. You can learn more about Wolverine Farm at www.wolverinefarm.com
Three Generations- 1987
Four Generations- 1999
The Ralph and Maxine progeny have evolved into a family with international roots that include Korea, Scotland, and India. In like fashion, the products of Wolverine Farm have expanded from potatoes and dairy to carrots, beef, eggs, berries and a broad spectrum of products. It has morphed from a sole proprietorship to an umbrella that covers a variety of businesses that market directly, through farmer's markets, and through commercial outlets.
