It's a common question new customers who visit the Farm Store ask. Maybe you've wondered it, too, friend.
The short answer...
We haul the live animal to the butcher shop and bring the frozen product back to The Farm Store.
Sounds simple enough.
But there's more to produce the meat that ends up in your shopping cart.
...Harvest appointments scheduled a year in advance.
...Loading live animals at 5:30 am to haul to the butcher shop
...Physical labor of shop employees to harvest, hang, cut, package and label the retail cuts
...Two round trips to the butcher shop
...Sorting and quality checking every frozen package & packing pre-orders
What does this mean for you?Ears up...this is important!
We know when & where every step of the harvest process happens.
You can ask us directly about how our meat was grown and harvested.
💡Knowing the process, seeing the traceability and simplifying the delivery chain - that's really knowing and understanding where your food comes from.
That's the peace of mind you get buying direct from a farmer. Any farmer.
Our family of 5 eats most meals at home. Here's what's happening in my kitchen this week
With Ham Steaks in the freezer, I reached for my favorite Glazed Ham Steak recipe for a quick dinner. Brushed on the glaze then broiled under the oven until heated through since they are fully cooked. Only a couple min per side is needed, any longer and they dry out quickly.
Leftovers are great diced up in potato soup, chef salad or ham & cheese scrambled eggs. Keep the bone and make a pot of ham & beans.

At Blue Silo, we grow beef, pork and chicken on our family farm to feed our neighbors in the Ozarks around Springfield, MO. We believe buying farm grown, local meat should be simple & easy because everyone deserves to know where their food comes from. Eating local meat supports small farms for future generations. Small, family owned farms are vital to our food system & local economies. learn more about shopping with us> -Ian & Kassi Glassman, owners
