Great Summer
Lilo in Sprinkler As this picture will testify, the irrigation water is still flowing and on a hot day our dog Lilo finds a quick shower to be quite refreshing. Although the rain has been slow to come this season, the irrgation water has provided adequate backup and the pastures are looking good.

While we have lost a few of the new calves for a number of reasons, things are going great and the rest of the animals are looking good. I downloaded a few pictures onto our website (taken by Chelsea Morgan, our summer intern), so take a look when you get the chance. Be sure to click on the "Older Entries" link to see all of them. In the next few weeks I will try to add a few more.

Drought in Oklahoma
Last year we secured a new lease in Oklahoma, one that would give us more grass and better pastures. As many of you may know, Oklahoma and other states in the south are experiencing an awful drought, with many ranchers having to sell off large numbers of cattle.

Allan is in Oklahoma now and reports that in spite of the heat and drought, our cattle are not only healthy but thriving. As it turns out, our new lease still has plenty of water available for the animals, and the grasses are holding up. He checked on our old lease and the creeks are dry. We immediately thanked God for His care and protection. While we did not understand completely why we needed to get this new lease, He did. We know that we are blessed and in His care. Halleluia!

Grilling Season
Pagosa Wildflowers Hungering for a good meal and thinking about grilling? Our Beef Filets/Tenderloins are wonderful - you can't go wrong. The same with any of our steaks. If you are going to grill a roast, which I love to do, my suggestion would be a Sirloin Tip Roast. Be sure to put some olive oil on it before grilling and rub with your favorite spices - especially garlic. Cook on high for a few minutes, then low till medium rare. Remove from grill and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. A meat thermometer is essential.

Our Whole Chickens can be grilled with a can of beer inserted into the cavety, or choose the Drum/Thigh Combo for a great barbeque. Lots of folks are grilling the Chicken Wings and having fun with various sauces and marinades. I love the Lamb Leg Steaks for grilling, with lemon pepper, salt and pepper for a seasoning. All of our Lamb Chops are delicious and are on sale during the month of August. A Leg of Lamb grilled the same as the sirloin tip roast is fabulous. I have also coated it with Dijon mustard and rolled it in seasoned bread crumbs, then grilled it, for a treat that is absolutely gourmet. Serve with some sweet potato slices, also grilled, for a rare treat. Bob appetit!

Farmers Market
Our local Farmers Market is held in the Ponderosa Lumber parking lot on Highway 160 west of Pagosa Springs each Saturday from 9:00 to 1:00. GrassRoots is serving lunch each week which includes an entree, a side, a drink and dessert, all for just $7.00.

It has been a great year so far, with sales at an all time high. I wanted to have pictures to show you, but that will have to wait till next month's newsletter as I completely forgot to take them this month. If you are in the area please come by and say hello. We would love to visit with you.

August Special
Lamb Chops 2 It is grilling season, and if your grill is hot then it is time to throw on a lamb chop or two - or four or eight! For the month of August we are featuring our Lamb Loin Chops and our Lamb Rib Chops for $12.99 per pound, a savings of $4.00 per pound. Our Lamb Sirloin Chops are $10.99 per pound, a savings of $3.00 per pound.

The timing is perfect so take advantage of this huge savings and stock up. Food prices seem to be going nowhere but up, so buy now while the prices are low.

In Closing ...
