STORE IS CLOSED Thank You. Bur Oaks Red Deer

I have greatly been blessed in my life. I have been able to spend my life with my animals, dogs; Dairy Cows (growing up); Horses boarding, training, showing, selling; baby pigs, owning-managing an early-wean off-site nursery for a genetics company; then Bur Oaks Red Deer (  Where I have been the last 20 years.

Last year my husband said “we should retire”.  That was after we had just rounded up, cut off antlers on the boys (had to do that before taking them to the processor, or they won’t take them).  It was also the first time I needed help holding my side, doing my part.  It was also getting harder for him and the rest of our aging help crew.  That word sent shock waves through me.  “Retire”, I’m not ready.  All my life, it seems, I have gone into the next-season of my life with eagerness and full force ahead.  This “not”.   But all things come to an end, just as Spring ends, so does summer, etc.

Thank you to those who have given us such wonderful feed-back on our venison!  From not only a consumer of our product, but a distributor who sold our product to many restaurants and individuals, to say that we have been a “supreme pioneer when it came to the best quality domestic venison”.  The time, work, and dedication to our herd, at one time 450 animals, has been not only deeply gratifying but a true blessing in my life.

We have made many friends through this business and we hope that these friendships will continue even though our venison sales, website, sales@venisonsteaks email, and 800 number will come to an end.  The 800# has been discontinued but you can still contact me at 641-797-2081 or cell 641-425-7581 (text also), when the website closes on November 15th, this Wed., our sales@venisonsteaks email will also end, but you can email me at

I truly say “THANK YOU” to all of you for contributing to our successful Bur Oaks Red Deer business.  If you are ever in north central Iowa call and plan to stop.  We love to visit.
