Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
All of the lumber is rough sawn. The lumber is sawn on a band mill which results in a smoother surface than traditional mills can give. It is air dried outside under cover until dry enough to be moved indoors to finish the drying process. The trees supplied to us are from storm damage, are dead but in good condition, or are trees that were otherwise removed (for example by the city or a homeowner). By using these trees, we can leave good, healthy trees standing. The mill we use makes a very thin cut. This results in 40% more boards cut from the same log. Also, my mill is more efficient and uses very little fuel.
We started reconstructing prairie on our land three years ago. We have three successful prairie plots. Additionally, we purchased a plot of land adjacent to ours. The home was abandoned and the land surrounding it was covered in garbage. The former owners hauled away a large amount of it and recycled what they could. We just completed cleaning up all of the remaining garbage and recycled every thing we could.Now we are taking the home apart and reclaiming the wood for use in our own home. This spring, we planted prairie in this area. The land will be used to raise our Dexter Cattle herd. It is a small herd as we will not raise more cattle than the land can support. We will also rotate the cattle to other pastures to give time for the area to recover. We plan to offer our beef at a later date through the cooperative.
