Raising meat is a big part of our homestead. I grew up raising our own beef and it’s a tradition we’ve carried into our home. Yesterday, my husband spent the better of the day fixing the fence that separates our two pastures. We’ve got two cow’s ready to calve soon and an older calf (which is a new yearling bought this fall) who wants to still nurse… hence keeping them separated.
My children know where our beef comes from. They help us care for the livestock. Which is why I picked today’s feature From Barn to Table: Eating the Meat You Raise from Spring Mountain Living.
