Birch Hollow Farm  We have a herd of small, friendly and manageable cows and calves that make great animals for anyone to raise their own beef. We also sell custom beef.

Breneen seeking revenge for her half sister Brenna kicks 251' ass pretty quickly....Breneen is a week younger than Brenna....Brenna goes over to pick a fight with 254-4 and makes short work of her...cows are feeling feisty today probably sick of the cold weather and grumpy like the rest of us...

Brenna's dominance is fading. 251 actually ended up winning this struggle. Brenna then went on to challenge and win against 254-4 and the heirarchy continues to adapt....Brenna is the oldest cow on the farm at 6 years old. She will not give up completely after this one loss...

Some grass-fed Ribeyes before and after seasoning from a smallish 27 month old steer last year. Not a ton of marbling in this one but will be tender and tasty...

My sister Kerry met her husband Eric while working at an archeological site aka "a dig" in lower Manhattan back in the early 80's. A new building near Wall St was halted for a month to allow the excavation.
Originally thought to be a Danish ship but turned out to an American ship from 1700's made by an American Brit who combined British and Danish building techniques. Turns out one of the managers at the "dig" published a book in 2015 about the whole thing. Kerry just discovered it. Pictures of the crew including Kerry and Eric and a close up of Kerry doing drawings of all the findings.

Separated the yearling calves into corral to feed better hay and some grain to get them caught up after long winter. There are 4 heifers in here that will be bred in July so they need a jump start before grass is here to put some weight on before breeding. The 5 steers will be next year's 2019 beef. I feel alot better about having these calves separated...
