Meat

We raise both grass-fed beef and whey-fed pork here at Cricket Creek.  Our beef cattle live outside all the time.  In the summer they are rotationally grazed through pastures, and in the winter they live on our hay fields eating the forage we put up for them in the summer.

Our pigs are fed mostly whey, as it is a byproduct of our cheese making operation and plentiful at Cricket Creek.  They also eat vegetable scraps that we receive from the produce department and deli at Wild Oats Coop Market in town.  Our pigs live outside and are rotated through a pasture.  They root around eating plants and bugs in the soil.

Both our beef and pork are available year-round, although if you are looking for something particular, please call in advance since we are often low on particular cuts.  All our meat is sold in the farm store is frozen.  We have a freezer dedicated to beef and one to pork. If you don’t see something that you would like, please ask a Cricket Creek employee and we can look for it for you. Here is a partial list of the meat we sell.
