Meet the Animals
Pastured Chickens: Pastured poultry was one of our first offerings at the market. We have fertilized just about the entire pasture with these animals in the past three years.
Grass-Fed Cows: Our cows are a cross between Black Angus and Devon breeds. Devon's are great for converting forage into meat and they sure are yummy too!
Laying Hens: There are about 300 of these hens. We have White Leghorns and Barred Rocks, which are a heritage breed. We are currently hatching more chickens as they are a primary source for our farm's fertility.
Pastured Pigs: We started 12 pigs this fall. Hopefully this next year we will be breeding our own. They are a three-way cross of Tamworth, Red Wattle, and Berkshire breeds - all heritage breeds. We are using the pigs to clean out some undergrowth on the farm to expand our pastures.
