BEEF and PORK
Raised Outdoors on a Pasture-Based, Natural Diet.
"Sustainable meat tastes the best." --Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
BEEF: Our cows are 100% grass-fed, eating pasture and hay, not grain. Grass is the diet nature intended for ruminants, and the one on which they do best.
Our animals are Rotationally Grazed from early April until late December. In Rotational Grazing, groups of animals are placed on small areas of pasture for a short period of time (commonly 3 days or less), after which they are moved to fresh pasture. This mimics the natural system in which ruminants graze, spreads manure out over a large area rather than concentrating it, and allows the pasture to rest and regrow. In addition, multiple species can graze together, and since each species has different grazing preferences, both pasture utilization and health increase. In the winter, they eat a rich grass and legume hay, purchased from a local farm.
When the animals are mature, they are transported in small groups to a local, family-owned and operated USDA inspected abattoir, where they are processed according to the customer's specifications. Individual retail cuts (steaks, roasts, ground meat, sausage, and more) are also availble at the Woodstock Farm Festival Farmers Market on Wednesdays, 4 to 8 P.M.
Retail Cuts: We will have our grass-fed beef available for sale at the Woodstock Farmer’s Markets or at the farm by appointment. Animals will be sent out for processing on April 12 and October 8 and will be available for pick-up roughly one month later.
Bulk quantities : Beef will be available by the side or split-quarter in November. Stock up for the winter and save! Bulk price is $4.00/pound, based on hanging weight.
*Our beef is 100% Grass-Fed, but NOT organic: they are fed non-organic hay in the winter.
Our Poultry is also raised outside, but provided with Certified Organic Grain from Lightning Tree Farm in Millbrook, NY.
Turkey : Yes, once again we will be raising turkeys for Thanksgiving, but just a few, so if you are interested, you must order early. Birds need to be reserved with a $15 deposit. They will be available at the farm on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
Turkey Price: $7.50/lb
