Thank you for your interest in our farm. We live in the farmhouse where Ivan grew up, and we work the pastures and hay fields that were once farmed by his great-great-grandfather. Ivan has been a farmer for his entire career, . 16 years ago, we diversified our farm, adding retail sales of natural meats and poultry.

WHAT IS NATURAL, GRASS-FED FOOD?
Feeding small amounts of grain without antibiotics or artificial growth hormones,
and much more
Snafu Acres Veal and Beef: Our veal and beef come from bull calves born and raised here on our farm. During their first few months, we group a few calves in large pens so we can monitor their health and be sure they are getting enough to eat and drink. These pens are in a greenhouse-style barn, so the calves still benefit from fresh air and sunshine. After that, they go out on pasture in small groups. 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 each day, 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 with 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. No medication is given, and there are no growth hormones or antibiotics in their feed. In the winter, our laying hens live in large pens.
Snafu Acres Pork: Our pigs are raised naturally, fed grains without growth hormones, antibiotics, or animal by-products. Because we haven’t perfected fencing for pigs, ours are raised in an open-ended barn, so that they get plenty of fresh air and sunshine. 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!
