Our freezers are full of our Tasty Meats, pasture raised chicken, pork, and lamb, and some amazing 100% Grass-fed beef.
We are on the homestretch to fund our Kiva Loan for $10,000 that will help us grow and feed more people. Kiva is a platform for private micro loans. You can learn more about Kiva here http://www.kiva.org/about
As of today we have $5,060.00 more to raise in the next 10 days. This is where the free meat comes in. If you will lend us $50 or more for 2 years, and share this blog post on your social media, we will give you some free meat.

Thank you for your support

Free meat will be provided after the loan is funded in full, the amount of free meat will be determined by how much money you are able to lend us.
As of 10/14/14 at 7:30 pm we have $3,520 left to fund. Kiva is currently matching all loans so a $100 loan will get us $200 toward our loan.
We have 3 days left to fund, please help any way that you can, sharing our story is always helpful.
Last year we took a micro loan out from Kiva Zip. This loan helped us to purchase a new breeding ram for our sheep herd, a new breeding boar for our pig herd, along with several new steers.
Through these additions to our farm we have been able to improve our genetics, and cash flow, while supplying our nutritionally dense Tasty Meats to more people in our area.
We were able to pay the loan back early.
We are trying to become more sustainable through the addition of more breeding cattle to our farm. By adding more females to our breeding herd we will have more calves each year. This will allow us to supply even more beef to the people in our area that would like to feed their families with our 100% Grass fed beef.
We are asking for those who are able to loan us a few dollars. If you aren't able please spread the work.

As always thank you for supporting our local small farm

Good afternoon! On my walk of the farm this morning I took a good look at the Angus cattle that we have added to our herd. It looks like we will have several steers ready in the very near future.
They will be sold based on hanging weight, plus butcher fees*
This beef is 100% grass-fed, very lean and tender, and has amazing flavor. If you'd like to order a half or whole beef please let me know. We also have individual cuts of chicken, lamb, pork, and beef available.
*approx $350 per half
Over the last month we have had 2 litters of Maremma livestock guardian dogs lgd born at West Wind Acres. Our Maremmas live with protect the chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, and cattle on our farm.

Our animals like to keep us on our toes. Yesterday one of our pigs took a stroll out on thin ice and went for the polar plunge. Luckily our land owners Bob and Sally Bintz noticed her quickly. They called me and the emergency services. Bob, my brother Lucas, and I were able to get her out quickly, before the West Glenville Fire Department and Glenville Police Department arrived.
Our sow Onyx made the Times Union this morning for her trip through the ice. Onyx is doing well. Thank you to everyone who helped.
