News and Updates:

~Join us on Monday, February 20th between 6-8 pm for a "Meat and Greet" at vomFass on University Ave. in Madison! Free samples, great specials and lots of fun!  We are now delivering to vomFASS every second Tuesday of the month starting on March 14th. Special discounts are available for those who sign up for our 6 month meat CSA at the "Meat and Greet". Samplers, custom orders and eggs are available every month. Meat and eggs will be available for purchase on the 20th as well. See you there and bring your friends.
~We are in the process of updating our website.  Please visit it and let us know how we can make it better. You can order our naturally raised meats and pastured eggs right from the site with regular deliveries to Woodstock, Madison and on-farm pick up.
~We have recently expanded our selection of sausage products!  We now offer ready to eat beef sticks in smokey regular, spicy, jalapeno cheddar and cheddar flavors. We also have summer sausage, dried beef and braunschweiger. What is braunschweiger you ask...well according to the ever accurate Wikipedia "In the United States, Braunschweiger refers to a type of liverwurst (pork liver sausage) which, if stuffed in natural casings, is nearly always smoked. Commercial products often contain smoked bacon, and are stuffed into fibrous casings." Yes, it's liver sausage, and it's impossible to spell, but it's wildly popular.  Give it a try!
~Specials: The big game is this Sunday, so we are offering the Game Day Pack with chicken wings, brats, beef sticks and summer sausage.  A $43 value for $35.  Order online or grab one at the Woodstock market.  It' perfect for the game but will be available all month. ~Feb. 4th at the Woodstock Farmers Market all beef sticks and summer sausage is $1 off/lb ~Feb. 18th at the market chicken breast will be only $6.50/lb (regularly $8) WHAT A DEAL. 
We are so pleased to be partnering with the world champion cheese maker at Emmi Roth!  Our beef sticks, summer sausage and dried beef is now available at Alp & Dell Cheese Store. Stop in on the north side of Monroe and don't forget the world champion Grand Cru Surchoix. The best cheese and meat in the world comes from Green County!
Our beef sticks have become a very popular item in a very short time.  Because they taste amazing have no MSG which has been linked to a host of health issues and they have no added nitrates other than those in celery juice. We sell them in packages of 6 each regular sticks are about $8/package and flavored are $8.25. Warning:  you'll never be able to eat gas station beef sticks again!
Join us on Feb. 20th at vomFASS on University Ave. in Madison. We will have samples, deals and lots of fun!  Monthly deliveries begin on Tuesday, March 14th 5-6:30 pm.  Order at the event or online.
The smug, fat groundhog predicts a long winter. Well, I know how you can cure the winter blues.  Head out to Woodstock where the film Groundhog Day was taped and buy some awesome food!  I do not recommend watching the movie though, my kids say "it's really weird".  You could watch this awkward snowball fight scene to get an idea of right where our market booth is in the summer.  The square in Woodstock is so awesome they film movies there!
