The Parker Ranch

Park RanchBy Lucy Bloomstran

Working on a cattle farm is hard work claims Jeremy Parker, owner of Missouri Grass Fed Beef. Parker also raises goats. An interesting fact about goats is that they have no top teeth! There are also baby goats which are called kids. It would be very hard to name all those cows. Parker has 135 cows. Only one has a name. Her name is Belle. The rest have nicknames but all the goats and cows have numbers.  The baby cows (calves) are born in spring and fall. Parker avoids having calves in January and February because of extreme cold weather and in July and August because of extreme hot weather. Parker has been raising goats and cows now for 20 years. Parker sells his delicious meat both at farmers’ markets and at his farm. You may find Parker at the Maplewood Farmers’ Market and occasionally at the market in Tower Grove Park. He will be at the winter indoor markets too. Parker only has a few visitors so why don’t you be one of those visitors and come on down and check it out.

    Great writing, Lucy!  We are big fans of Jeremy’s products (in fact, we have a freezer filled with his products).   Now I’ll have to call him to arrange for a visit for myself and my daughter.
