Caney Creek Farm
Caney Creek Farm can be found in the rolling hills of New Hamburg. New Hamburg is a small village in Southeast Missouri. The Glastetter's have been farmers long before they sailed over from Germany in 1858. This farm has been my family's farm since 1864. Caney Creek Farm now consists of over 100 acres of rowcrop, pastures, woodlands/grasslands, and wetlands.
I raise registered Lowline Angus Cattle for grass fed beef and registered breeding stock. My herd is still growing and I'm costantly trying to improve our stock. I also raise registered Kunekune pigs for pastured pork and registered breeding stock, or (for those who wanna cuddle a pig) pets as well. Not to mention my pastured poultry, a breeding flock of Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chickens. Nothing like farm raised beef and pork, with free range eggs too!
My Blue Laced Red Wyandotte Chickens
We also have a flourishing flock of Blue Laced Red Wyandotte chickens. Nothing beats eggs from happy, completely free range hens. The Wyandotte is a breed of chicken originating in the United States. The first examples of the breed appeared in the 1870s. Wyandottes are a docile, dual-purpose breed kept for their brown eggs and for meat. They are also very beautiful birds, available in all sorts of colors. Making the Wyandotte a great heritage breed for any homestead.
My Lowline Angus
Lowline Angus are naturally polled cattle. They were developed during the 1970's in Australia from Aberdeen Angus. They can now be found in Canada, the United States, and Europe. They are a docile, well conformed animal. They offer small holders and those farmers with limited acreage the option of keeping docile cattle of high quality. They are smooth, free from waste, and produce high quality meat. They are free from the eye cancer which plagues the Hereford. They were developed to have the desirable characteristics of the Angus breed, but only be about 40 inches tall. The cows calve easily, and the animals finish on grass alone. Mature Lowline bulls will generally fall into a range of 40-48 inches measured at the shoulder and weigh from 900-1500 pounds. Mature cows should measure from 38-46 inches and weigh between 700-1100 pounds. Certain individuals will fall outside of these parameters. Judgment should be made on quality and confirmation rather than size.
My calving season is April and October. If you are interested in registered Lowline Angus breeding stock, grass fed beef, or just have a few questions about the breed... please contact us!
My Kune Kune Pigs
The Kunekune pig (pronounced "cooney cooney") comes from New Zealand and was originally kept by the native Maori people. In the late 1970's a breeding program for the Kunekune pig was developed by wildlife park owners, Michael Willis and John Simister. With only 50 animals left the Kunekune pig was nearly gone. Now they can be found in Europe, the US, and Canada! They are extremely outgoing and love human interaction. They are a grazing pig and can finish out on grass alone. Kunekunes are a smaller breed of swine that make them perfect for just about any size farm. Kunekune Pigs are relatively small in size with boars rarely reaching over 250 pounds.
My Kunekune sows usually have litters in April and October. If interested in piglets or if you just have a few questions about the breed, please contact me.
I have Kunekune piglets available, if interested PM or email me...
My Pug Dogs
I also breed Pugs cuz they are so darn cute!
My Anatolian Shepherd Dogs
Caney Creek Farm is under the constant supervision of our Anatolian Shepherded Dogs. The Anatolian Shepherd Dog is a breed of dog which originated in Anatolia and was further developed as a breed in America. It is rugged, large and very strong; with superior sight and hearing allowing it to protect livestock. Calm, watchful, loyal, and smart, protective and territorial, they make a great farm dog. Our Anatolian Shepherds guard our Kunekune pigs and are on constant watch over or free range birds. They protect our livestock against raccoons, coyotes, bobcats, and stray dogs.
So that's all for now, like I said I will try to keep my page up to date.
You can P.M. me or email me at [email protected] if interested an any animals...
