Locally Raised Meats

We are a small family farm with a focus on rare heritage breed animals that thrive on our rough northern hillsides in Norwich, Vermont.

Our animals are raised outside in the fresh Vermont air year-round. They graze on organic pastures where they are able to what they like to do. The pigs root and the poultry get to scratch and forage for bugs while soaking up the sun. We specialize in rare breeds for several reasons. The meat from heritage breeds is far more flavorful then the factory farm meat found in most supermarkets today. These breeds fit our cold, rough terrain and can be outside all year. Also, preserving these rare breeds protects genetic diversity.

Our Belted Galloway cattle, known to many as the ‘Oreo’ cows, graze on a historic farm in the Root District of Norwich, Vermont. Our Tamworth pigs root in the woods and fields making best use of their foraging and tilling abilities. Our Jacob sheep make good use of the steep hillsides. We produce grass-fed and finished beef and lamb, heritage breed pork, pasture raised French gourmet broiler chickens, holiday turkeys and organic eggs. All our poultry is free-ranging and fed organic grain. We also raise Tamworth breeding stock and feeder piglets.

We raise our animals outside year-round because the animals are happier, healthier, and produce a better product. Pasture-raised meat and eggs are ideal for your health. Compared with commercial products, they offer you more “good” fats and fewer “bad” fats. They are richer in antioxidants, including Vitamin E, Vitamin C and beta-carotene.

Furthermore, they do not contain traces of added hormones, antibiotics or other drugs. Meat from grass-fed animals have two to four times more Omega-3 fatty acids than meat from grain-fed animals.

We sell our meats all year from the farm, at the Norwich Farmers’ Market and through a meat CSA.

Please call with any questions…Thanks!
