Willow Wood Farm
Located in the southern Adirondacks, Willow Wood Farm raises Dexter and Dexter cross cattle and mixed heritage bred pigs. We offer meat by the cut at our self serve farm stand that is open daily from 9 am to 6 pm and at the Ticonderoga Natural Foods Co-op.
You can order whole and half pigs that will be ready to fill your freezer in the fall. We are now offering a very limited number of our Dexters in whole, half and quarters.
$3.75 lb HCW for a whole cow
Dexter's are a small heritage breed from Ireland, also known as the Irish Jersey. They are dual purpose cattle but we raise just for meat. A whole Dexter will generally hang at around 500 lb. They produce a smaller cut of meat that is a darker red than most grass fed beef.
What is HCW?
Hot carcas weight (HCW) is the weight taken immediately after slaughter, but before final trim. With beef for example, HCW is approximately 60% of live weight.
