We have a flock of certified organic pastured chickens. Our eggs are available on farm and at the Wausau summer and winter markets. Our chickens are raised on pasture from early spring to late fall in a range system with a movable coop. They eat a mixture of grasses, clovers and insects together with a mixed ration of certified organic grains (about half of the grain is raised on the farm and we should be providing all the feed by the fall of 2014) and fresh water.
Eggs are $5/dozen and reflect the higher cost of certified organic (100% non GMO) grains.
Stoney Acres Farm has three-four sows and raises pigs on pasture April-December and in large indoor pens in winter time. They live in social family groups from birth. Our pigs are fed organic grain, organic fruit and vegetables, hay (in winter) and pasture in summer. Our pigs are Berkshire, large white and/or Berkshire crosses - flavorful pork.
Pork is sold by the 1/2 or by individual cut. We can make packages with your favorite cuts for pick up at the farm or farmers market. We Process our meat locally at Custom Meats of Marathon pork or Geiss Meats in Merrill. Our Bacon and cured meats are now nitrate free. The cost for a half or whole pig is $6/lb with processing included. For pricing on individual cuts or special orders please call. This is the cost for the actual poundage of meat not the hanging or live weight, so you get the amount you order.
Grass Fed Beef
Our 100% grass-fed meat can be purchased by the cut at the Wausau Farmers Market or the Farm or purchased in small mixed packs (25 or 50lbs) at $7/lb or larger mixed packs quarters (about 100lbs), Halves (about 200 lbs) at $6.50/lb or whole animals (about 400lbs). These weights are the actual weight of the meat you receive not hanging weight. Ground beef is $6/lb and is around 95% lean.
Our animals are raised according the USDA Regulations but our meat is not certified organic as we choose to have it butchered locally rather than driving animals a long distance for certified organic meat. Most of our meat is processed at Custom Meats of Marathon where it is dry aged for at least 2 weeks adding to the wonderful flavor and texture (most grocery store meat is higher in fat but wet packed which reduced the flavor). Our animals are only butchered during early summer and early fall after the largest flushes of cool season grasses and clovers which adds to the flavor and nutritional quality of the meats. If you would like to be added to our meat order list for 2016 (pick up in early July) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cows and steers are mostly Galloways but our herd also contains Scottish Highland and some Herford-Galloway crosses. We choose breeds that do well on pasture, are good natural mothers, have good marbling and meat quality, and are hardy in Wisconsin weather.
HOW WE RAISE OUR ANIMALS
Our beef are 100% grass-fed meaning they eat no grain over their life course. Our animals are kept in herd, on grass and clover pastures between May and December and Fed hay made from the pastures during winter months. Our animals are not confined and are managed in a rotational grazing system which is optimal for both their own health and the health of the land. During winter months they have access to both a loose housing barn with food and water and snowy pastures where they receive hay. Animals are raised to an average age of 24 months and are naturally weaned by their mothers.
