Beef

I have been getting a lot of inquires about where to acquire different cuts of beef besides ground beef.  Our ground beef comes from dairy animals that no longer meet the needs of our dairy.  While our ground beef has excellent flavor and is extremely lean, which many of our customers love.  Cuts of beef from these same dairy animals just wouldn't be up to our standards.  We would love to eventually add a small beef herd to our business to further meet the needs of our customers but for now we need to stay focused on the dairy.  In the meantime, here are the links to a few local beef producers that I know of.  Many of these producers sell at local farmers markets so you can sample some of their beef before committing to larger quantities.  I hope this helps folks get their freezers full!

Janzen Family farms is located north of Wichita and is ran by Norm Oeding.

Barry Barber runs Turkey Foot Ranch located in Winfield.  He just sent out an email saying that he is taking whole and half beef orders right now.

Kevin and Cherie run Schenker Family Farms out by McCune.  While this isn't as close by as the other producers I know they make regular deliveries to Wichita and they can also be found at the Old Town Farmers market on Saturdays.
