Snafu

Natural pork, grass-fed beef & veal, free-range poultry & eggs.

Thank you for your interest in our farm. Ivan lives in the farmhouse where we grew up, and we work the pastures and hay fields that were once farmed by our great-great-grandfather.  Ivan has been a  farmer for his entire career . Several years ago, he diversified the farm, adding retail sales of eggs, natural meats and poultry. In the recent years, Ivan has been joined in the farmer venture by his sister, Noni. Noni's family has Beautiful Day Farm. That was started as a vegetable farm. The veggies have taken second place to the pigs, beef cattle, and poultry.

WHAT IS NATURAL, GRASS-FED FOOD?

 

Snafu Acres Veal and Beef:  Our veal and beef come from bull calves born and raised here on our farm. Our brood cows at this time are Devon Crosses. The farm's bull is an angus with some hereford genes. The calves are raised on pasture with their mothers until we wean them.  Veal animals are raised to a size of 400-500 pounds; about six to nine months.  Beef animals are raised 12-18 months.  These animals may eat a small amount of grain occasionly, but most of their nutrition comes from pasture grasses and hay in the winter.

Snafu Acres Poultry and Eggs:  Our chickens and turkeys are raised here on the farm, beginning in a brooder at one day old under a heat lamp.  The chickens live in portable “chicken tractors”.  These pens, called tractors because the chickens till and fertilize the soils as a tractor would, are moved onto fresh grass regularly.  So the birds live in sunshine and fresh air, with fresh grass to eat each day. For the past two years the chicken tractors have been moved twice a day.  No medication is given, and there are no growth hormones or antibiotics in their feed. They are locally grown and locally processed.

Snafu Acres Pork:  Our pigs are raised naturally, fed grains without growth hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products.  The pigs are in the open-end barn during the winter and moved out to pasture in the spring. They are moved from pasture to pasture to give them fresh pasture feed. They are also fed a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits from nearby markets.

Why are we creating this delivery system?

 We find so many people who support local agriculture; both as a vote for local economy and quality of place, and in recognition of the quality and value of local foods. But people are busy, and we realize we can help our customers by bringing our products right to your door.  So this system seems a great combination of convenience for you and efficient marketing for us!
