Elk or Wapiti as we refer to them in North America are a very majestic animal. Elk are indigenous to this area-originally a plains animal they do very well on our ½ section of rolling hills & plains. The elk migrate throughout the day to different parts of their pastures. Early in the morning & towards evening you can see them regally surveying all that is about them. Everything about them is regal – the way they walk, the way they hold their head and the way they stop to listen to any potential threats. The elk cows are very protective of their young and have been known to surround a coyote or a fox to drive them away or even destroy them. The elk bulls can be quite aggressive in the rut when they are with their females. We leave them alone and do not interfere with them at these times. If we have to move them to a new pasture we just leave gates open for them to find their own way to avoid injury or stress.
The elk are completely grass or hay finished depending on the season. We grow all our own hay chemical free so we have complete control over what each animal eats. It takes longer to finish an elk as it has a longer, leaner frame that matures more slowly than either the beef or the bison.
We offer only the Premium Elk Cuts from animals between the ages of 24-48 months. This ensures tender succulent cuts every time. All other cuts go into ground, sausage or burger patties.
There are many health benefits of eating grass finished elk. Since it is finished on grass it has more Omega 3's than feed lot animals, it's leaner than any other red meat — it has only 1.9 grams of fat/100 gram serving and it is also extremely low in cholesterol. See our nutritional chart below.
