Laura’s Little Beef Farm LLC is a family run operation at our home. My wife and I began this quest early in 2005. Our first order of business is to raise meat in a manner that we would be proud to provide to friends and family.
Preparing lush green pasture using recommended practices found in Jo Robinson’s book, Pasture Perfect and Allen Nation’s book, Quality Pasture really helped. We searched long and hard for feeder steer to start our herd. We invested in heifers and cows to start calving to build our herd. The steer we raise meet all of our requirements of no growth aids, steroids or antibiotics. They are raised on our beautiful green pasture which receives no chemical pesticides or fertilizer. When the pasture salad won’t support their needs we supply them with quality hay. All of our fencing is smooth, high tension wire so there are no barbs to stick the cattle, therefore reducing stress for our animals.
Your meat is slaughtered and dry aged then wrapped, labeled and quick frozen in a family owned, USDA approved slaughterhouse/ butcher shop close to our home. We are located less than an hour from northeastern Detroit. You are welcome to visit our farm, just give a call and make sure we’re home. Don’t be alarmed if you pull up to our pastures and you find us singing and talking to our animals. We have found this to be very beneficial to a calm, healthy animal.
We sell our meat by quarter, half, whole, or special steak/burger orders but we are not a supermarket or butcher shop. I would be happy to discuss your family’s meat needs with you to see if we can help you fill them. We have customers that only want the steaks and burger from the whole animal but then want the rest donated to needy families, we do that.
