First Calf - West Wind Acres

First Calf

Calving season has started

07 AprFirst Calf


Farmer Friday

Yesterday right in the middle of the rain storm our first calf of the year was born.  A healthy bull calf was brought into the world.  He is also the heifers first calf, she is doing great as a mom.  The weather report said rain for the whole night so I blanketed him, to keep him warm and dry.  This morning he’s full of energy, bouncing around.

Many of our other cows and heifers are look like their calves will be arriving very soon.

What’s better than West Wind Acres Grass-fed Beef?

A big juicy West Wind Acres grass-fed beef burgers grilled over hardwood charcoal by 9 Miles East Farm, with soup, salads, and more. Served to you by Joshua Rockwood, who will be guest waiting at the pop-up restaurant Saratoga Apple
There may even be farm-made bun and savory umami ketchup involved.

The beef will be from West Wind Acres in Charlton. Good news if you like it: You’ll be able to sign up on the spot for a single delivery or ongoing meat subscription featuring high-quality grass-fed meat from a great local farm.

Food will be served 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday nights in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere, and the patio will open as soon as weather permits.  Saratoga Apple has a great selection of local beer and cider to accompany the food.
