Meet the Animals

Pastured ChickensPastured 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 HensThere 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.
