New BUCK OF THE WEEK leader : Britton Whetsell, 110 lb. buck


BUCK OF THE WEEK WINS A DEERSTAND FOR 8/15 TO 8/21

Announcing a brand new contest!


 We are replacing the Big Buck Contest with the new 
BUCK OF THE WEEK!
Each week we will announce the prize for the week. Anyone who has a deer skinned and processed here at Cordray's is automatically eligible to win. Winners are determined by the highest dressed weight of the week. You must claim your prize when you pick up your meat.

BUCK OF THE WEEK prize for 8/15 to 8/21
Remington 15 Ft. Tree Stand


This week Johnny Steinbrecher held the title with 101 lbs. for a  day, then Clarence Pye brought in a buck Tuesday morning that dressed to 103 lbs. On Wednesday evening Britton Whetsell blew that one out with an 110 lb. buck. 4 more days!

Stay tuned to this blog to see if you are one of our 20 winners!

We will not have an overall yearly winner, just weekly winners. To receive your prize, you must pick up your meat within a week of the due date. If you have someone else pick up your meat, please be prepared for them to pick up your prize on that day. We are not able to hold prizes for you.

Thank you!

Hello, Friends!
Thanks to your support of Cordray Farms, we've been able to reach a new milestone for our small family farm. This summer, in our off-season, we were able to keep 5 of our seasonal employees year-round. That's 3 folks full-time and 2 part-time!  In the past, we've never had enough  work to keep more than one full-time and one part-time person over the whole year. So, although it may seem like a small accomplishment to many, for us it is a big deal to be able to provide steady work for our neighbors. So thank you for supporting our farm and making this possible!

In the store:
We have stocked the meatcase with fresh cut, never frozen, steaks and roasts. We have plenty of bacon and red rind cheese. If you've been thinking about a Beef Share, now is the time to do it. We have 7 for sale! I don't think that's ever happened before!
We'll be cutting Beef Sides in mid-September so now is the time to reserve those.
We make raw dog food from our all natural Cordray Farms beef trimmings. It is in 1.3 lb frozen chubs (just like the burger) and our dogs LOVE it.  With all these Shares going out, we've got plenty on hand at $2 a chub.

I think that's all the news for now. I hope you'll stop by soon!
