News From the Farm

Hay Season Begins! We dusted off all of the equipment, sharpened the blades, and harnessed up the horses. This week we cut, raked, and baled our first test run of haylage. The grass is ready and we are too. Last year we produced about 1000 bales from June to August. We are hoping to produce 1500 this year.

Burke’s Garden Farm Lamb - A High-Quality Healthy Meat Option

Here at Burke’s Garden Farm we raise some the healthiest sheep, and thus, lamb meats in the USA. Sheep thrive on 100% pasture grasses and hay. Sheep also consume plants, such as noxious weeds, that most other animals will not touch. This means that sheep are an integral component of an all grass-fed rotational grazing ecosystem along with other livestock.

Simply Beautiful at the Garden

I spent this morning leisurely walking the property and basking in the beauty of where we live and where our livestock graze and grow your grass fed food. Not everyone gets an opportunity to experience this majestic land first hand, so I’m bringing you with me in photos. Scroll slowly through these pictures, take a deep breathe, smell and listen to each one, and really drink from Nature’s full cup of glory.

Spring is Here!

As the weather sways back and forth from Spring back to Winter and back to Spring again, we are beginning to feel life preparing to POP!! Daffodils Bloom. Tree buds express. Grass is beginning to grow. Baby animals are being born. On the farm, it’s time to wrap up all final winter fence and water system repair projects, test out the equipment and get ready for the next 6 months of rotational grazing and hay making.

The Sun Will Rise Again

I was having a difficult time getting excited about Spring. Even with the pure white Dogwoods, the Eastern Redbuds bursting along the highway, the Daffodils and Forsythia blossoming and bedazzling, the baaa-ing new baby lambs, and the pasture so ready to burst with new life, I still was feeling dull and depressed. Here at Burke’s Garden, we buried several of our good friends and members of our farm family.

What Type of Rennet Do We Use in Our Cheesemaking?

What is Rennet? There are traditionally four ingredients in cheese - milk, salt, rennet, and culture starter. Rennet is used as a clotting agent to curdle the milk into cheese, separating the liquid parts of milk from the solids. It’s an essential part of the cheese-making process.;

Understanding the A2 versus A1 Beta-Casein Comparison

Many of you buy our dairy products, not just because it is raw and organic, but also because it comes from A2/A2 Jersey Cows. Most intelligent, health-conscious people will go out of their way to source A2/A2 dairy because they have heard of the health benefits. But why?

13 Holy Nights

December 24th, the eve of the Sacred Birth, kicked off the beginning of an ancient tradition. This was the time in the course of the annual cycle to drop into deep contemplation and meditation on our soul’s journey to the earthly plane. Humans would ask questions like:

Cheese is Our Culture

We’ve spent this year sharing with you about our farms and our farming practices. We have spotlighted our 100% Grass Fed Beef, our Pastured Pigs, Chickens, and Turkeys. We have toured our Pastures and brought you with us through our Haylage-Making process where we grow our grasses, herbs, and clovers to feed and raise our clean and healthy animals.

We cut the ribbons on two new farm stores in 2023.We will finish out the year, highlighting our star player, our heavy-weight champion, our team anchor, and very popular product...

Deer Hunting Season

What do we do when it's deer hunting season? When hunting local, we wake up real early, usually around 3 am. We do the milking. We feed the calves, pigs, horses, and dogs. We move the portable fence, so the cows and heifers have fresh pasture for the day and try to be in the woods before dawn. Although it can be challenging to find the time to hunt, it is very relaxing to sit out in God’s creation and watch nature.
