Learn About Our Grass-fed Beef

Sustainable Farm Fresh Food from Orwell, Vermont

Our crops include garlic, tomatoes, as well as varieties of sweet corn, beans, squash, potatoes, greens, onions, cucumbers and flowers.

Our draft horses and Scotland Highland cows work and graze on the hill pastures and bottomland. We make both square and round bale organic hay, grow vegetables, raise beef, pigs, broiler chickens, turkeys and layer hens.

We offer fresh whole, four to six pound chickens harvested in small batches from July to November.   A limited amount of  turkeys harvested  the week of Thanksgiving.
