Organic Eggs from Hens on Pasture
We raise our laying hens on pasture where they do what chickens do best: scratch in the grass, chase grasshoppers, and forage for much of their diet. We employ the traditional breeds of Barred Rocks, Black Australorps, and Wyandottes to debug our gardens and fertilize our fields. Our eggs are certified Organic by MOFGA.
Use our Order Form to sign up for an egg share (a dozen eggs each week of the CSA season), or purchase by the dozen at farmer's markets.
Organic Pastured Broilers
We raise heritage Freedom Ranger meat chickens. They are free ranging over lush pasture, where they enjoy a smorgasbord of tender grass shoots, clover leaves, and tasty insects, as well as free-choice Organic grain. We process all our own birds here on the farm, and sell them as whole chickens for $4.50/lb. They generally weigh 4 to 6 pounds dressed. Our chickens are certified Organic by MOFGA.
Use our Order Form to sign up for a Broiler Share or to reserve individual birds by the date.
Heritage Breed Pork
There's nothing like the sight of a hog enjoying rich tasty soil. We have begun breeding our own heritage breed pigs, whose piglets will be certified Organic. We encourage our pigs to help till our fields, stir up our compost, and forage for as much of their diet as possible. Once old enough, they rotate through the woods and enjoy the grubs, roots, and acorns that abound there.
Our pork can be reserved by the whole or half hog with our Order Form, or purchased by the cut at farmer's markets.
We raise Katahdin sheep on 100% pasture. We feed no grain and use no dewormers or antiobiotics, but instead move our lambs to fresh pasture every other day. We try to coordinate the rotations of our sheep and poultry so the sheep can benefit from the wake of fertility left by our chickens.
Use our Order Form to reserve a whole lamb for the fall of 2014.
Organic Pastured Turkeys
We raise broadbreasted bronze turkeys on pasture the same way we raise our chickens. We process them from late summer until Thanksgiving, and are aiming for our birds to weigh 12 to 28 pounds dressed. Our gregarious gobblers are certified Organic by MOFGA. They tend to sell out early - reserve yours for 2014 with our Order Form.
