Welcome to the Wyoming Pure Natural Beef Blog!

We have decided to share a little more about our day to day (or week to week) operations with you as well as a great beef recipe once in a while. Let’s start with our family! Wyoming Pure was started by the Goertz family, Gregor & Cindy Goertz and their children Jason, Matt, and Tori in 2004. As with most agricultural operations, it’s a family affair. Gregor and Cindy wanted to expand the ranch/farm business to include the whole family so that everyone could stay involved. The operation has now expanded to include Jason’s wife Kim and children Cole and Laynie, Matt’s wife Kim and their children Connor, Dane, and Luke, and Tori’s husband Ricky. We also have a part-time employee, Morgan, who helps us inventory, package, and deliver meat, as well as helps with advertising. As the weeks go on we will share a little more about each family.

 


Harvest Time – 2018


Harvest-2018
Wow!  It has been an interesting wheat harvest this year to say the least.  We were officially in the field on July 14th.  That was seventeen days ago, and we still aren’t done!  Typically harvest would last 6-10 days.  Wheat harvest always creates so many wonderful memories every year, and this year hasn’t been any different.

There have only been a few days when the harvest crew has been able to have a good day in the field.  The weather has been our biggest obstacle this year.  It has rained (a lot), it has been humid (not normal), and of course equipment is always a challenge.  Gregor, Jason, Kim, Cole, Laynie, Connor, Dane, and Luke, along with a few hired men have been working hard to bring the crop into the grain bins in a timely manner despite all the challenges.  Gregor’s nephew, Taylor came up from Colorado with his children Tanner and Jayden to help with harvest as well.  Taylor and his family enjoy coming up to help, be with family, and stay connected to the farming traditions.

Cindy has spent her time in the kitchen, shuffling vehicles and people, and keeping up with Wyoming Pure orders.  It is always a challenge to decide what meals to take to the field at night and to feed the entire harvest crew.  We typically take a hot evening meal to the field because the crew doesn’t have time to stop and come to the house to eat dinner.  This year Cindy has made, Mexican Lasagna, Tater Tot Casserole, Chicken Enchilada Casserole, brisket sandwiches with cheesy potatoes, and much more.

We hope to be finished with harvest by August 3rd, but there is cool weather and rain forecasted between now and then.  It is also county fair this week, so we will definitely be busy. We’ll see you next month with updates on harvest, fair, and maybe some recipes!
