Crafters enjoyed a chance to show their wares during an open house at MSW Meats Friday, Nov. 27.
The annual open house was hosted by MSW Meats in an effort to get people out to the country to purchase holiday crafts as well as see some of the free range, grass fed meat products the farm has for sale, explained owner Mark Stewart.
“They’ll come and see that we’re out on the farm and we try to do things the right way,” said Stewart.
His hope is to generate new customers to products from smaller farms. Indeed, Stewart said the open house is a great way to meet the whole family. He feels there is growing interest from consumers who want to know what goes into the food they buy.
“It’s really good for the farmers because … taking the product that we raise and making it available in the freezers and to the public. People are really starting to catch on to that,” said Stewart.
He has a variety of products available such as elk, longhorn cattle, grass fed organic meat and at the store at his farm the family offers a variety of steaks, burgers, sausages, beef jerky and more.
