Benedikt Dairy is a 100% grass-fed, ecologically-minded dairy in Goffstown, NH.

Our purebred Jersey cows live on pasture day and night through the growing season where they eat grasses and herbs. In the winter they are fed dried and fermented grasses, clover and alfalfa. They never eat grain or other energy concentrates. Rotational grazing improves the biological health of the land and provides the cows with optimal nutrition, so they can produce the most nutritious milk for you.

Our Products:

All of our dairy products are made from the milk of our 100% grass-fed rotationally grazed Jersey cows.

  • RAW MILK. Sweet and creamy cream-top milk.
  • RAW CREAM. Our cream is exceptionally thick, perfect for making butter and for whipping.
  • CREAM-TOP YOGURT. Our cream-top yogurt is made from rich whole milk, not homogenized so the cream naturally rises to the top, and contains live active cultures. Pasteurized and cultured.
  • GREEK YOGURT. We use the traditional method of hanging our whole milk cream-top yogurt in cloth to produce its luscious consistency. Pasteurized and cultured.
  • CHURNED BUTTER. Sea salted or unsalted. Pasteurized and cultured.


  • PASTURED BEEF. Our 100% grass-fed ground beef is available most of the time. Different cuts, broth bones, and suet are available on a limited basis. We do not offer quarter, half or whole animals.

Our farm stand is open to the public 7am to 7pm daily.

BOTL Farm is a pasture-based, sustainability-focused livestock farm situated on 41 acres of transitional silvopasture in the Quiet Corner of Connecticut. We run a regenerative farm performing intensively managed rotational grazing year-round for as long as weather and grass production allow.

All our animals are Animal Welfare Approved, and our sheep and goats are Certified Grassfed by A Greener World.

We have designed and developed our farm so that our animals can express their natural behaviors. The animals live on pasture all year long and are never confined, they breed according to their natural cycles and birth unassisted on pasture, plus they have the room to explore and interact with their surroundings.

Raising animals in this way makes our farm sustainable compared to conventional farming practices – the animals are improving the quality and fertility of the land, not to mention their meat tastes exceptional!

Focusing on heritage breed animals is a natural choice for our farm and we choose breeds that can thrive in our New England climate of hot summers and cold winters.

Our Kiko goats and Icelandic sheep (lamb) are only fed grass. Harvested in the fall, cuts of goat and lamb are available until they run out.

Our pigs (pork) are Mangalitsa/Berkshire/Large Black crosses. They are supplemented with a soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, and organic feed. Wholes are available seasonally, while cuts and larger meat boxes are available year-round.

Our laying flock of chickens are a mix of heritage laying hens. They are supplemented with soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, and organic feed. They are rotationally grazed behind our sheep, goats, and pigs. Multicolored eggs are available year-round and stew birds are available every few years.

We sell directly to customers at our farm and assorted farmers markets, see website for details.

Chase Hill Farm is an organic-certified dairy farm in the Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts. The farm is owned and operated by Mark and Jeannette Fellows.

We milk our herd of 25 Normande cows seasonally from March to December. The cows are 100% grassfed and organic-certified.

We produce raw milk, farmstead cheeses, pasture-raised veal and beef, and whey-fed pork. The cheeses, which are all made from raw milk, include Cheddar, Farmstead (colby-style), Feta, Italian Grace (parmesan type), and Dutch Gold (edam).

Chaseholm Farm is a grass fed dairy farm nestled in a 350-acre patch work of pastures, crop land, woods and waterways. It is my family’s farm and my brother Rory and I are the third generation to make our lives here, tied together with the land, the cows and their milk. I took over the dairy four years ago with my partner Jordan. We produce milk with a motley crew of Holsteins and Jerseys for my brother who makes artisanal cheeses as Chaseholm Farm Creamery.

We became raw milk certified in September 2013 and built a cozy farm store next to the dairy so that we can share our milk, cheeses and other local delicacies with you!

We practice intensive and adaptive rotational grazing with our 100% grass-fed dairy herd. We also raise pigs (pork) on pasture and grass-fed beef. All of which you can find in our farmstore.

Chestnut Farms is a family-owned and operated 106 acre livestock farm in the heart of MA. We are committed to connecting our community with local agriculture using traditional and humane farming practices. We are not certified organic because we choose to support local farmers over importing certified organic hay from Canada. Our animals are rotationally grazed through our all natural pastures maintained with the help of a professional agronomist who advises us on our pasture grass mix and planting schedule rather than chemical sprays and synthetic fertilizers. We are committed to environmentally sustainable farming practices.

We primarily sell our meat in monthly "shares" and offer a monthly on-farm pickup and bi-annual open barns to visit our animals. We raise all natural, heritage breed, hormone and antibiotic free meats. This includes grass-fed Hereford-Devon beef grown exclusively on pasture and hay to ensure a rich, wonderful flavor and high levels of Omega-3. Our York, Hampshire and Duroc pigs are pastured and petted while being fed only a natural grain diet - never any garbage. We use mobile pens and pasture to ensure our pigs always have fresh, outdoor space to grow, play and live in.

Our Icelandic purebred and cross-bred lambs are born in the spring pasture where they are allowed to nurse and frolic with their mothers. They are harvested in September through April each year. We also raise our own pastured poultry including turkeys and chickens in moveable pens. This ensures healthy grazing while significantly reducing the bug population on our farm!

Chestnut Farms offers shares in our meat CSA. Each month members receive a mix of "daily" (ground beef, stew meat, bacon, whole chicken, sausage) cuts and "prime" cuts (steaks, chops, boneless chicken breasts). For more information please feel free to visit our website.

Greetings from the Chicoine Family Farm. Henry Chicoine established the farm in 1933. It was a cream and heifer operation. He also sold ice from the ice pond for refrigeration. Henry never used any herbicides or pesticides on the land and that remains true today. We have built on that great foundation and now produce high quality 100% grass raised beef.

We offer a variety of steaks individually wrapped, 2 to 4-pound roasts, and 1–pound packages of ground beef. Everything is frozen and kryo-vacced. You may call us and purchase at the farm, or visit us at the farmers markets. Ask about our delivery services.

At Christian Hill Farm, we raise Meishan, Berkshire and Gloucestershire Old Spot Pigs the old-fashioned way: in the woods and pastures.

The pigs spend ALL their time outside in the fresh air, and are free to roam, root, graze, wallow and play as they please.

Our pigs are slow grown with local grain fed twice a day, supplemented with spent brewers grains, fruits and vegetables, and free access to hay (yes, they do know how) creating delicious meat for our family and yours.

Our pork is processed at a USDA inspected facility and is vacuum sealed and quick frozen for best flavor and storage longevity.

Call to schedule pick up, delivery, or to schedule a visit.

Clark Organic Farm is located in Carlisle, Massachusetts (near Concord) west of Boston, and are certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers. Andrew studied soil science and his wife is a holistic nutritionist. We believe in pasture-based livestock farming and organic methods for vegetables, and also being important contributors to our community.

We run an organic produce CSA. We raise chickens on pasture in mobile houses for eggs, and they are supplemented with a soy-free grain. Our heritage breed pigs run through the woods and are also given some supplemental, soy-free grain. Our sheep and goats graze on grass and are rotated often. We offer our meat through a CSA program. More information can be found on our website.

We also run education programs and special events, and sell our eggs and produce to restaurants and retail locations. Sorry, we do not ship. Non-members are welcome to shop at our farm during CSA hours. Please visit our website for current hours.

* We do give our sheep and goats a HANDFUL of organic, soy-free grain just to coax them out to pasture each day. If we didn’t do this, they would run all over town. Our farm is right in the middle of town, and sometimes the animals get loose and stop traffic. This is purely a functional strategy that is necessary because of our location and the difficulties in hearing our animals.

Devon Point Farm in North Stonington, Connecticut is committed to providing delicious, antibiotic- and hormone-free grass fed, grass finished, pastured BEEF and all-natural heritage breed PORK.

See our website for details and pricing on all of the following:

Our grass fed BEEF: We raise our cattle on pasture using rotational grazing and sustainable farming practices. They have access to fresh clean water, trace minerals, and round-baled hay during the winter months. Cattle are grown and finished on grass and hay only – no grain, no antibiotics and no hormones. Compared to grain-fed beef, grass fed beef has less total fat, less saturated fat, less cholesterol, and fewer calories. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and “conjugated linoleic acid” (CLA) than grain-fed beef. The beef is humanely slaughtered and butchered under USDA supervision, dry-aged for 10–14 days, clear plastic shrink-wrapped, labeled, and frozen. For sale at our Farm as half beef, quarter beef, sampler boxes and by the individual cut.

Our PORK: Heritage breed, all natural, with no hormones or antibiotics. They are fed a robust diet of vegetable scraps from our all-natural (chemical-free) vegetables, and supplemented with grain as needed. It is humanely slaughtered and butchered under USDA supervision and custom cut to your specifications. For sale at our Farm by the individual cut, or by half or whole.

We also raise heritage “ruby red” American Milking Devon cattle for sale as breedstock.

Fox Hill Farm is 315 scenic, rolling acres in Ancramdale, New York just 2 hours north of NY City, in the foothills of the Berkshires of MA, CT and near the Taconic Parkway. We raise grassfed and grass-finished beef in an environmentally sustainable manner with rotational grazing of heritage breeds of British White, Murray Grey, Red Devon and crosses. They are very tame and raised organically but not yet certified.

The farm is protected from development by a conservation easement and has been in the Lampman family since 1882. The heritage breeds were chosen because of their ability to do well on grass and produce a healthy and tender, tasty product high in Omega 3 essential fatty acids.

Quarters, halves, or whole beef custom cuts are prepared to customer specifications. We also sell and ship individual packages of steaks, roasts, burger and now terrific hot dogs (PaPa Dogs) that are all-beef, no-nitrate, with a natural casing.

All processing is done at small, local USDA inspected facilities. However, if an animal is purchased on the hoof in advance, then the most humane ‘end’ can be arranged for at the farm. Shipping is available.

Visitors are welcome.

Holiday Brook Farm is currently offering pasture-raised pork, grass-fed lamb and beef, and eggs, maple syrup, and vegetables.

Our piglets are born here on the farm in deep-bedded stalls or on pasture as weather/season allows. As soon as it is warm enough in the spring, pigs are moved to pasture where they are may root and wallow as much as they like as they renovate old vegetable fields, pasture and hayland. They are an integral part of our field management system. They are fed a supplement of locally produced grain throughout the year, and are supplemented with plenty of farm-produced second-cut hay in the winter time.

Our practices make for a flavorful, lean meat that is tender and delicious. Our hams and bacon are real-wood smoked in CT, though our slaughterhouse only has the capacity for a liquid cure. We currently sell cuts out of our freezers here on the farm; please contact us for an informative brochure and detailed cut price list.

Eggs are from pasture-based, heritage breed laying hens, though their winter quarters are in the barn to keep them warm, they still have access to the outdoors and we provide them with free choice 2nd cut hay and locally produced grain. Eggs are sold out of farm office and at our seasonal farm-stand on Rt. 9.

River Bard Farm is a small family farm in Deerfield, Massachusetts, situated along the Deerfield River. We raise heritage breed Icelandic sheep and Gloucestershire Old Spot (GOS) pigs.

We practice rotational, multi-species grazing to make the most of our land and keep the soil healthy. We don’t use pesticides or herbicides, and our animals are not confined to barns. We know all our animals by name, and their welfare is our highest priority. Our lambs are not weaned or separated from their mothers, and our pigs are free to roam, root, and farrow on pasture. We personally transport all our animals to a USDA, humane-certified processing facility that treats them with care and respect.

We sell whole and half lamb and pork shares at a bulk price, custom cut to your specifications. Individual cuts are also available (current prices on our website). All cuts are vacuum packed and frozen for pick up on our farm (by appointment only). We offer free delivery within a 30-mile radius on orders over $300, but do not ship. Specialty cuts, including smoked bacon, ham, shoulder roasts and linked sweet Italian and bulk breakfast sausage are available most of the year.

Grass-fed Icelandic Lamb. Perhaps the mildest, most delicious lamb you’ll ever taste! Icelandic lamb is prized by chefs the world over for its mild flavor and delicate grain. Our lambs grow on dam’s milk and pasture only (no grain, ever), and are free from artificial growth hormones and antibiotics. Our lamb is as healthy as it is tasty.

Heritage Pastured GOS Pork. Gloucester Old Spots produce generously marbled pork with rich, succulent flavor, creating moist, tender roasts and chops. Our pork is raised free-range on pasture and woodland, without artificial growth hormones, antibiotics, or feed with animal by-products. They are handled daily and enjoy back scratches and vegetable treats from our garden.

Scarletoak Farm is nestled in the northeastern hills of Connecticut's "quiet corner," about 15 minutes from the Massachusetts border. Here at Scarletoak Farm we pride ourselves on exclusively 100% grass-fed, grass-finished quality beef.

We rotationally graze our herd on lush native grasses. Our cows enjoy grass forage and always have fresh water. The health of our soil is important to us and we test it regularly, putting in only what is natural and beneficial to the land around us.

We value and honor the connections in the environment and pride ourselves on having the highest quality product we can provide as we constantly strive for sustainability. We do not use herbicides, steroids, hormones or enhancers in making our natural product.

It is important to us that our beef bovines are treated humanely from the beginning to the end. We use Meatworks of Southern New England, a state-of-the-art USDA inspection facility for our butchering practices and utilize Temple Grandin's design of stress-free handling.

We sell our product by the quarter, half, or whole.

Please call Tammy and Greg Goodwin or email us for availability at stores and farmers markets. We are happy to do farm tours.

Steve Normanton: I am originally from South Africa, where I worked in the livestock trade the conventional, agribusiness way. Here in New England, I have raised grass-fed beef for over ten years, with a focus on sustainability and holistic principles. I now raise pastured pork, pastured chicken, pastured eggs, and 100% grass-fed beef on 65 acres on the banks of the Merrimack River, about 10 miles from the Massachusetts state line. My pastures are certified organic by the State of New Hampshire.

My cattle graze on pasture throughout the growing season, and I feed them certified organic hay in the winter. They are never fed corn or other grain, even for “handling” purposes. I sell beef in bulk and by the cut. I harvest my cattle when they have reached their full potential of quality, which means the largest quantities are available in the fall. Therefore, I recommend pre-ordering for fall delivery. All my beef is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.

My pigs live and forage outdoors, and I supplement their diet with organic formulated pig grain. My pork is harvested in the fall, and is available in bulk and by the cut as long as supplies last. All my pork is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.

I raise my meat chickens outdoors on pasture in a day-range system, which allows them to forage for bugs and living plants. I supplement their diet with organic formulated chicken grain. I process the birds on-farm (exempt from USDA inspection) June through October. I sell fresh or frozen whole chickens (i.e. plucked and cleaned but not cut up into parts).

My laying hens, like the meat chickens, forage outdoors on pasture in the growing season, and also get organic formulated layer grain. Eggs are available year-round.

Please visit my web site for current pricing, ordering information, and more details about my farming practices.

Wheel-View Farm in Shelburne is a family owned scenic hilltop farm in western Massachusetts raising USDA certified natural grass-fed beef and breeding stock from our primarily Scottish Highland and Galloway herd.

The cattle graze contentedly on our summer pastures and are fed grass-legume hay from our fields during the winter. These heritage breed cattle do an excellent job of maintaining open space on land that is not suitable for grain or vegetable crops. We have chosen this type of farming because it is more environmentally friendly, more humane for the animals, and also healthier for the consumer.

Unlike commercial feedlot cattle that are raised in confinement and fed a diet of grain, synthetic vitamins, growth hormones, and antibiotics, our grass-fed animals live very different lives. They live on pasture from birth to market. Because they live a more natural, less stressful life the animals are very healthy and calm. We determine the growth rate of our animals not by artificial hormones and grain but instead by genetics and quality of the forage, resulting in a nutritious healthier product.
