About Our life as Minnesota Farm-Her's
We were born with a passion for animals!
Hi! I’m Christina, and this is my daughter Hailey. We are the faces of Grillin Meats and our cattle company.
Here I will share a little about us and our passion for raising aniamls as Minnesota Farm-her’s.
At the ripe age of 2 my family and I made the move to my great-grandparents house to live. Part of the privledge of being next door to grandpa’s farm was being able to go with dad to the farm to help feed the calves when I wasn’t raising cane in grandma’s house.
Little did I know at that time, I was going to live in that house, then become a Minnesota farm-her/ rancher myself. A simple attraction to white cattle that I couldn’t explain haunted me until 1997 when I was introduced to the beautiful and unique alure of the British White Cattle.
An Ah-ha moment that I have appreciated since that day, I still get giddy when I look out the window every morning and see my beloved herd roming the pastures.
Raising my family with this privledge has been indescribable, challenging, and perfect at many levels. We work tirelessly to produce the meats from pasture to plate, for us and you!
The number one question people ask is "Is your beef 100% grassfed AND grass finished?" My short answer is "YES!" The long answer is much more fulfilling! COMMITTENT: I made a commitment to myself and our cow herd in 2009 that they would no...
Hailey has had the privledge of growing up on the ranch, and she started her micro farm with chickens at age 12. She has grown pretty fond of the poultry, and when she’s not fussing over their nests and nutrition needs, you may find her preparing the eggs for market, or spending her time with a favorite beef animal or on her horses.
Hailey manages the ranch when I’m away at the farmer’s market, making deliveries, or taking care of business for the ranch.
Hailey loves the animals, maybe not the pigs, but she hasn’t turned down bacon very often, so I guess there’s a place in her heart for them too.
The beautiful clan
Along with Hailey, my clan has a few more faces too. My daughters, Rebecca, and Ashley (sil Brandon), and 2 sweet little boys. While these ladies have both grown and started their own lives, they come around often and love to lend a hand to play with little pigs, feed livestock while I’m away, ‘out of commission’, or just to expose the grand children to farming.
I might rope them into helping gather cows too on occasion, but they jump right in when a package of jerky appears ~ for some reason 🙂
