farm is miles away from "industry" in the heart of prime

excellent quality, hearty tasting chicken weighing between 4–7

Auburn Meadow Farm. It's true! Slow growing, old fashioned British breeds make some of the juiciest, most flavorful grass fed beef around. Meat rich with beefy flavor and fine, juicy texture – all on a grass only diet – special enough to be included on the Slow Foods Ark of Taste!
Our herd of rare American Milking Devons are about as close to their British roots as can be. We began our work raising cattle as a direct response to animal welfare, food quality and environmental issues. We follow non-certified organic methods and the cattle eat only grass and hay grown here at home.
Our cows live a happy, natural life of grazing with their buddies, with plenty of spring water & free choice shelter from cold, rain & blazing sun.
In beef cattle, there is a documented relationship between high butterfat content in the milk and superior marbling in the beef. And, a scientific reason the flavor and texture of the meat from smaller breeds given longer to mature is so much finer. We have taken great pains to resist the temptation to breed for increased size and beef yield thereby preserving the rich milk that made these cows such a treasure in their native Devonshire, England.
You’ve heard of Devonshire cream, haven’t you? Well these girls invented it…
We are located just about an hour north of Pittsburgh, and ten minutes from Boardman, Ohio. We have limited amount of beef available each summer and are excited to share it with you. Don't miss out; when it’s gone, it’s gone until next year!

Baytree Farm has the very simple, yet exact
Love Lamb. We love to raise sheep and lambs. We love farming.
We would like to share this with you.
Baytree Farm is 180 acres of grass pasture and hayfields,
located in southern Venango County just minutes from Interstate 80. We
have lived here over 30 years and run around 200 ewes.
We are a pasture-based, grass fed lamb producing
operation. We do not use hormones or antibiotics. Since we like to be
outside, we know that the sheep do also; hence we offer the flock unlimited
access to rotationally grazed pastures. Here they can get all the fresh
air, sunshine, clean water and exercise they desire. We make all the
forage here for winter feeding.
At Baytree Farm we produce various size lambs for
different markets. Many of our lambs are sold at 60–75 pounds live weight
and are in high demand. We do have larger lambs for specific customer needs. Whole or half lamb can be shipped nationwide, from a USDA inspected facility, which follows humane handling procedures. We accept credit cards and make every effort to accommodate special requests. Please visit our website for more details.
We strive to do our absolute best for our sheep and
lambs as well as all of our animals. We have been given the opportunity
and privilege of raising sheep on our farm and work very hard to provide
the most humane and conservation-minded environment for them. We have
most recently completed and passed the first phase of the Sheep
Safety and Quality Assurance Program sponsored by the American Sheep Industry
Thank you for your time and consideration. We invite
your comments or questions always.

Ohio less than one hour from either Erie, PA or Cleveland, OH. We are
a family-owned farm dedicated to providing superior quality,
all-natural, cruelty-free, pasture-raised pork.
Our pigs are raised in the fresh air and sunshine where they have room to roam

pork to you and your family. We know that you will find it to be some of the
best pork you will ever taste. Our pork chops are out of this world juicy and
more flavorful than any "assembly line" pork product. There is much
less waste in our product because it contains only 100% all natural-pork. No
additives. It is the way pork should be—flavorful and tender.
We are currently offering pasture-raised pork by the side or whole hog.
A half-hog yields approximately 75 pounds of take-home meat, and will take up

Blue Fire Farm & MileStone Apiary offers grassfed beef, breeding stock and raw honey. We use biodynamic principles. We see our farm as a living ecosystem, from the soil microbiology up.
Our family raises heritage cattle breeds that excel on native pastures, mainly Belted Galloway. Our cattle
live and graze in family groups, migrating around our farm throughout the growing season. During the winter they are
fed native hay free choice. We also offer them kelp and salt with added selenium and vitamin E free choice, year round.
Our honeybees are allowed to build comb naturally, as they would in the wild. We use two types of box style hives:
Warre with observation windows and the conventional boxes. We feel strongly about the conservation of honeybees
and that they are the backbone of agriculture. We even remove wayward honeybee colonies from buildings. Honeybees
unfortunately are being plagued at this time with many devastating pests. We use an integrated pest management system
to help the bees cope with these killers.
Beef is available on a preorder basis, by the quarter, half and whole; cut to your specifications at a local USDA inspected slaughter house.
Honey is packaged in several different size and style containers. Our honey is available by mail and is sold locally at several stores.
For more information, prices and questions, please feel free to call, write or email us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Blue Rooster Farm has
found that healthy soils are the foundation for sustainable
agricultural production of any kind. We are farming two small
farms using beef cows and ewes as our primary soil
building partners. We use no antibiotics, growth hormones,
chemical wormers, pesticides, herbicides, or commercial fertilizers.
We seek to be good stewards of the Susquehanna River watershed
in which we live and farm. Managing our grasslands for grass-nesting
birds while protecting and improving the health of the streams,
wetlands, shrubland, and forest habitats are as important
to us as the health and productivity of our livestock.
For eight years we have been using line-bred Black Angus
genetics from Sam Wylie's old-time purebred herd in Bedford
County, PA. Our cattle are selected for their ability to
thrive in a low-input environment. Sam's bulls have excelled
at improving our cow herds' fertility, mothering ability,
and efficiency at producing excellent quality beef with a
minimum of fuss.
Our calves are slaughtered at between 18-24 months of age,
and produce carcasses between 550 and 750 pounds, depending
on the desired level of "finish." We sell most
of our steer calves by the whole, half, or quarter and also
try to keep an inventory of steaks, roasts, stew meat, beef
sausage, minute steaks, short ribs, and extremely high quality
ground beef on hand for retail sales.
Our ewe flock is line-bred to purebred North Country Cheviot
rams. While not as prolific as many popular sheep breeds,
we like their hardiness, excellent feet even under wet pasture
conditions, mothering ability, and high quality lamb carcasses.
Our lambs generally dress out between 40-55 pounds. Along
with whole freezer lambs, we carry an inventory of
delicious lamb sausage, chops, leg and shoulder roasts.
Our animals are processed at Prestige Meats, a family-owned,
professionally-managed, custom processor in Huntingdon County
and Benners Beef, a family-owned, USDA-inspected processor
in Juniata County.

Buckland Farm is situated in Southern Bedford County, half an hour’s drive off Route 30 in Pennsylvania and Interstate 68 in Maryland. This scenic farm is home to pastured Tamworth cross pigs and the whole hog and hog-share pork into which they are made.
Buckland Farm’s Tamworth cross herds are born in a farrowing center on the home acres and then moved to woodland pasturage when they’re weaned. The sows also reside in fresh pasture while they gestate. Our pigs eat cull from our 2.5 acre, organically producing vegetable gardens. In addition, they receive a daily supplement of freshly ground and locally grown (though not organically certified) feed as well as produce seconds from a locally focused grocery store. In season (July through November) our hogs enjoy daily access to apples. The pastured pigs regularly receive sprouted acorns from October into January.
Our pork is called a revelation by all who taste it—including numerous ethical vegetarians who willingly delight in pork-based meals if the pork comes from our pigs.
We have a range of live-weight hogs: old sows (600 lbs), ‘lard’ pigs (325-450 lbs), standard commercial weight pigs (225-250 lbs) and smaller pigs for whole-hog roasts (40-125 lbs). The butcher at the local meat locker is a genius, and very reasonably priced. We’re happy to get you comfortable with the hog-share process.
To enjoy a Buckland Farm egg is to lose your pleasure in virtually any egg from anywhere else. Our chickens are guarded by a rooster. Our fully pastured flock roams very freely across the home acres, into the heirloom produce gardens and sometimes as far as the antique apple orchard or the heirloom cherry orchard.
Buckland Farm is only 2.5 hours drive from DC or Baltimore. It’s about the same drive time from Pittsburgh. Come and visit the farm to see ‘your’ pig on the hoof, you won’t be disappointed. You’re welcome to see our pigmanship practices in action at any time.
Contact us to make a reservation to possess yourself of premium fully–pastured Tamworth cross flesh. Our expert staff can bring you up to speed with recipes and techniques for homemade lard, bacon, sausages, and more! You’ll find there’s surprising value in using every part of the hogshare available to you.

Cedarland Farm is a small family
farm in Southeast York county, Pennsylvania. We raise Icelandic
sheep on pasture for custom meat and wool products. These
sheep are a mountain breed, known for mild flavor and thriving
on grass alone. We don't castrate and let the lambs wean
naturally to reduce stress and keep gains high.
We believe in farming as naturally as possible, deworming
only when needed and not on a regular schedule. By improving the land
through intensive grazing and pasture rotation, we build up the fertility
of the soil and with a balanced custom mineral/vitamin blend, our sheep
are rarely in need of antibiotics.
There will be about 10 lambs available in late Summer/Fall
Reservations are first come, first served. You can
expect 35-45 pounds hanging weight from these delicious lambs. Please

Coulter Farms lies quietly nestled
between Shade Mountain and Tuscarora Mountain in Juniata
County, midway between Harrisburg and State College. We are
proud producers of exceptional grass fed beef,
lamb, pork, free-range eggs, raw milk cheeses from our own Certified Organic 100% Grassfed Jersey cows (up to 9 varieties), and honey.
Our family manages the rotational grazing of 120
acres of rolling multi-speciated pasture and 90 acres of productive hay
fields (organic as of Fall, 2007). We practice a purely organic farming
system, relying exclusively on biological systems to achieve excellence
in our soils/pastures/harvested forage/animals. Rotational grazing, cover
crops, composting of manure, no-tillage seeding and conservative crop
rotations are used extensively. Only the cleanest water runs off our
land. We have eliminated all chemical, synthetic, antibiotic inputs and
strive to reduce fossil fuel use while making the best possible use of
Ruminant animals at Coulter Farms never taste any
form of grain...only mother's milk, lush pasture and fermented hay. Our
two-year-old steers (8-month-old lambs) are fully finished, giving ample
marbling to the meat. This marbling produces the highest levels of CLA
and Omega 3's (not to mention taste and tenderness) in the meat. Wintering
beef over a second winter to an age of 24-26 months is time-consuming,
but we feel you'll agree that it is well worth the wait.
Processing is handled humanely in a local, USDA certified
abattoir. Two to three weeks aging results in the highest levels of taste
and tenderness. The product is skillfully cut, flash-frozen and cryo-vac
packed to maximize quality and longevity.
A walk-in freezer at our farm allows us to maintain
some inventory of meat, but most animals are pre-ordered (you may come
select your animal on the hoof' if you like). Beef is available in quarters
(approximately 100 pounds), halves or whole animals.
We would appreciate the opportunity to provide your
family with what is, we are confident, the best meat available in the
grass-fed market. Call or email us for more information. If you come
to see us, please remember to bring your kids and boots so we can show

Farm is a small, family owned and operated livestock and produce
farm. We are located in Westminster, MD with easy access from Baltimore,
MD; Washington, DC; Frederick, MD; and south-central Pennsylvania. Although
we are not certified organic, we run our farm in a sustainable manner.
We support local food systems, better stewardship of our land, and raising
animals with respect. We offer seasonal shares of our produce, meats,
poultry and eggs.
We raise fork-tender Dexter/Belted Galloway beef cattle,
wonderfully mild tasting Katahdin lambs, and flavorful heritage
and Berkshire hogs. We have fresh eggs from Rhode Island
Reds and produce free-range broilers March-November. We promote
an intelligent husbandry that supports a more sustainable farming and
food system. Our lambs and beef are grass-fed and all our animals are
raised hormone, antibiotic, and steroid free.
We follow natural sustainable farming practices,
including rotational grazing. Grazing on open pasture helps with the
general health of the animals: they get exercise, absorb sunshine, and
breathe fresh air. They seem happier that way, and we are, too.
All of our meat is USDA inspected for quality. You
have several options when purchasing our meats and poultry for your freezer.
Multi-Season CSA meat, poultry and egg shares available. Check our website
for price and availability.
We are a small family farm, so quantities are limited.

Fairview Fruit Farm strives to use natural farming methods that benefit the health of our customers, our livestock and the land on which we live. We offer grass fed beef, free-range poultry, and pasture-raised pork, as well as fresh produce and numerous other products.
Our calves and steer are strictly grass fed and are not given any grains. Our veal calves have free choice of their own mother’s milk and grass, which does lead to a redder meat than store bought veal (they are not given access to any grass). Meats from our grass fed cows are very nutritious and have far more vitamins, minerals and healthy fats than meats from grain fed cattle.
Our poultry comes from chickens that have free access to pasture, fresh water and fresh air. They are not confined to a chicken house or cages or fed antibiotics. They roam freely around the pasture surrounding our portable chicken coop where they roost at night.
Our pigs are raised on pasture just like our other animals. They freely roam our orchard where they eat fallen fruits, as well as food scraps that we provide them. Our bacon and hams are nitrate free.
Since 2009, the farm began the transition to natural farming methods and minimize our use of chemicals. We became interested in natural farming through reading some books written by Joel Salatin. We do our best to keep our prices reasonable, so that our customers can afford the nutritious, wholesome food that natural farming provides.

Golden Hill Farms goes to grass
For over 25 years we at Golden Hill Farms,
in northwest Pennsylvania, have been producing and selling
top quality show cattle, with the remaining calves being
sold to feedlots for grain finishing. Since we are a grass
and hay farm, this year we decided to keep 30 of our top
feeders to finish on grass.
This year the grass finished cattle will
have an average dressed weight of 600–700 pounds. They
will only be sold by the half (300–350 pounds).
Golden Hill Farms is about 40 miles
south of Erie, 80 miles north of Pittsburgh, and about 2 hours from both
Cleveland and Buffalo. We are 4 miles east of I-79 off exit 141.

Grand View Farm is a multispeciated, pasture-based farm that is focused on organically grown, local food that is produced in a way that simultaneously heals the land. Our customers come out to enjoy the farm and purchase their beef, pork, chicken and eggs from our on-farm store.
Our grass fed only cattle are rotated around the pastures followed by our egg layer chickens in a symbiotic, soil-building relationship that mimics nature. The pigs inhabit the wooded areas and pastures of the farm, adding an important element to its multispeciated aspects. Rotated like the cattle and chickens, these pigs lightly disturb the woodland floor, trim the brush and fertilize the ground. The broiler chickens are in floor-less "chicken tractors" that are lined up across the pastures and moved daily to a fresh patch of grass. The broilers arrive on the farm as day-old peeps, live their lives outdoors in clean, healthy environments until they are culled here on the farm.

milk of our prize winning Holstein and Jersey cows.

dairy product direct from our family to yours. Our Canyon Country Cheeses
are made here from start to finish! Clean, comfortable cows are fed a
diet of the best hay and grain Jim can find. They graze the quiet pastures
on our farm and lounge under the fans if they get too hot. What a life!
We believe the final product is only as good as what
goes into it. Our raw milk cheese is made from only high quality milk,
salt, cultures and enzymes. Its taste will reflect the quality and care
that goes into all we do. No factories here!

Hidden Spring Farm is a family run operation, in Lebanon County, PA, specializing in 100% grass fed beef and pastured poultry. We also produce sweet corn and pumpkins during the growing season.
Our beef herd consists of angus/limousin cattle which are raised on grass/legume pastures here at the farm, from birth to finish. The herd is rotationally grazed, given a new paddock at least once daily and offered free choice kelp and salt. At no time do our cattle receive any grain or growth hormones of any kind. During the winter months they are fed hay and baleage, which we raise on our farm.
The chickens we raise are the cornish cross breed. Their diet consists of supplemental grains, plenty of fresh green grass, and any insects they can find. They're allowed to express their natural pecking and scratching instincts in the open-floor housing units we keep them in. No hormones or growth stimulates are given at any time. The portable housing units are moved once a day to ensure fresh forage and a clean environment for the birds.
Beef and chicken must be preordered and picked up at the farm. Chickens can be ordered live or dressed. Beef can be ordered in eighths, quarters, halves, or whole animals. It is processed in a USDA inspected facility and is dry aged for 14 days. This ensures tenderness and enhances flavor. Please call for pricing and availability.

The Jennings Farm is located in Medford NJ which is 20 minutes from Cherry Hill, NJ and 45 minutes from Philadelphia, PA. The farm has been in our family for four generations and was preserved from development by the SADC (http://www.nj.gov/agriculture/sadc/about) of New Jersey.
Our beef animals, mainly Herefords, live stress-free happy lives and enjoy the tranquility of our rural 100-acre farm. They are free to roam year round and are never penned up. However shelter is available to them during inclement weather, snow, wind, rain, and heat.
The herd grazes rotationally through our fields to allow for rest periods to enhance healthy grass re-growth. The pastures in return give back nutritious forage for our animals. To round out their diets, our herd has access to trace elements salt and kelp. During the winter we add hay to their dormant season grazing but they are never fed corn or grain nor are they given antibiotics or hormones. This past fall several of our pastures were over seeded to increase both forage diversity and density. Late winter/early spring clovers will be frost seeded to raise the nutrient value of the pastures utilizing their leguminous nitrogen fixing capabilities.
We do not have organic certification but do our best to abide by the standards embraced by organic farming. Future plans include applying for humane animal certification.
Beef orders currently being taken for Spring/Summer 2015 bulk orders for either 1/4, 1/2 or whole animal purchase. Please call for further details.
Animals are processed by Bringhurst Meats in Berlin, NJ a company that has been in business since 1937. Jeff Bringhurst went the extra mile to obtain Human Animal Certification, assuring that all animals processed there are humanely slaughtered.

We have had a closed herd for over 15 years, which means all the cattle have been born and raised on our farm for generations and are acclimated to our soil and environment. We buy no outside cattle to fill your order.
At JuJo Acres we keep it simple: new pasture daily from Spring to Fall, our certified organic hay in the winter, free-choice minerals and sea salt, and lots of TLC. Our cattle are gentle and easy to handle.
We sell by individual cuts picked up at the farm by appointment, or orders delivered to drop-off sites in the greater Harrisburg area every 2nd Wednesday of each month. We also sell by 1/4 or 1/2 beef, delivered or picked up.

Kookaburra Farm has its roots
in raising healthy, organic food. What began as a small market
vegetable and grass fed lamb operation in the hills
of New England in 1998—has matured into a multi-generational
family farm in the Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania.
We strive to offer 100% grass fed, nutrient dense beef raised
on organically managed pastures, stored forages, minerals and well water.
The key to our management system is minimizing stress in every aspect
of our animals' lives.
Our cattle are processed at a family run USDA facility
where they are dry aged, cryovac sealed, and blast frozen. We strive
to finish mature, well fattened animals. Our beef brings a juicy, flavorful
eating experience full of the good fats that grass fed beef has to offer.
We sell 40-pound 'Family Packs' that consist of 50%
ground beef–50% steaks and roasts. We also sell our ground beef
and other excellent cuts separate from our Family Packs. We sell beef
at our farm and deliver to buying groups in local PA, MD and DE counties.

The Liggett Farm has been a family-run farm since 1872. Nestled in the rolling hills of Southwestern Pennsylvania at the divide between the Cross Creek and Buffalo creek watersheds, the farm is blessed with many natural springs. Many of these springs have been developed and are directed into watering troughs for the growing cattle herd. Fresh water and abundant grass on our 187-acre farm is our (not so) secret to raising healthy grassfed beef. We utilize a rotational grazing system to maximize the utilization of the pasture grasses during the growing season. We grow and harvest our own hay and haylage fed to the cattle.
Approximately half of the farm is pasture while the other half is used for growing the hay needed to feed our herd and a few acres of non-GMO corn which is all sold to a local elevator. The corn fields are necessary for our crop rotation, weed control and for utilization of the substantial amount of manure produced by our cows during cold winter and calving season—about 2 months out of the year—when they are housed in the barn. The yearlings that I keep for grassfed beef stay out on pasture and are fed haylage until it gets too cold then they are fed dry round bales of second cut through the winter. We grow our own oats straw bedding which keeps all our cattle warm and dry.
Beef is available by pre-order. Freezer beef is sold by the whole, half and split quarter. All our beef is processed locally using a dry-aging process. Please call for current prices and to get your name on the list for this year’s beef.

a family owned and operated grass farm selling, since 1978, the highest
quality pasture-raised beef. Our goal is to bring healthy,
flavorful beef to our customers in the Northeast while maintaining
a self-sufficient, ecologically sensible operation committed to perfection.
The Scottish Highland breed has proven to be exceptionally
well suited to transform our lush Western New York grasses into beef
the way nature intended. We feel that by being stewards of these cattle
while allowing them to be the natural stewards of their grassland has
made Locustbrae an efficient, sustainable provider of high quality beef
and breeding stock.
Highlands are smaller, slower-developing cattle than
most commercial breeds and are listed as “Recovering” by
the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. Long, heavy hair and a thick
skin give them the ability to weather harsh winters without developing
excess body fat. The result is a lightly marbled, low fat, low cholesterol
beef. Locustbrae Highlands spend their lives on lush pasture foraging
on clover, orchard grass, trefoil and other native grasses. They
also prefer a higher portion of “browse” (brush and weeds)
than most breeds, minimizing the need for pasture mowing.
Healthy food is good for the body and good for the
land. Grass fed cattle effectively transfer natural forages into
nutritious beef without the need for environmentally costly antibiotics,
pesticides, or chemically grown feeds.
Cattle are finished on pasture grasses and harvested seasonally, in harmony
with the nutrition that Mother Nature provides.
All Locustbrae beef is cut and packed at a locally
owned and operated, USDA certified facility providing custom dry-aging,
and vacuum packaging.
Locustbrae Farm Scottish Highland beef can be purchased
in quantities large or small and shipping can be arranged within a 100
mile radius of Alfred, NY. We are located just 15 miles from the New

Martin's Twin Brook Farm is a
small all natural farm in south central Pennsylvania. We
raise Scotch Highland cross cattle for beef. We feed
only pasture grass, hay, and a mineralized salt block. No
antibiotics nor hormones are used. We use no chemical fertilizers
nor herbicides on the pasture. Beef is sold by the mixed
quarter and must be picked up at a local butcher, usually
in July or October. Supply is very limited. We will take
your name and call you for order confirmation a few weeks
before the beef is ready to be picked up.
We also have very limited quantities
of emu meat from free-range emus raised on the same
pastures described above. No antibiotics nor hormones are
used. Emu meat is a red meat that looks and tastes very much
like beef, is high in iron, and has about the same fat content
as turkey. We sell emu by the half or whole bird. A whole
bird usually yields 50 to 80 pounds of meat with no bones.
Very limited quantities of fertile, free-range
brown chicken eggs (no hormones nor antibiotics) are
also available from the same pastures used by the cattle

vegetation. Alongside these cattle, a plethora of other animals are raised
in completely traditional manners. The lands contain no herbicides, pesticides,
fungicides, or any other synthetic derivatives of any sort. None of the
animals are ever vaccinated, and they never receive antibiotics, growth-hormones
or stimulants of any kind. They are never fed grains, soy or any other

Pure Indian Foods is a small family-owned
business that takes pride in making an exceptional quality
grass-fed and certified organic Ghee. Golden
colored Ghee is prepared by melting and simmering butter
until all the water evaporates and the milk solids settle
at the bottom. The remaining butter oil is very stable, giving
it a high smoke point which makes it an excellent choice
for deep fat frying, baking and sautéing. Because
of the low moisture content, it can be stored without refrigeration
for 2-3 months. Many people find our ghee, with its rich,
nutty flavor, to be tastier than butter.
We make our ghee fresh, with care, in small batches,
right here in the USA. Our products are USDA Certified Organic. We use
butter made only in Springtime through the Fall, when the cows are actually
out on the pasture eating fresh green grass. We make our ghee only on
the waxing or full moon days which are auspicious in the ancient Vedic
system. We use glass bottles instead of plastic bottles to avoid dangerous
toxic chemicals from leeching from plastic containers. Our family has
been in the ghee business in India for 5 generations, since 1889, and
we are proudly continuing that tradition.
Ghee has been used for its health-giving and healing
properties for thousands of years. In Ayurveda (the “science
of life”), cow ghee is considered one of the most sacred foods.
Ghee is the best cooking oil as it is stable at higher
temperatures, and it enhances the flavor of spices and herbs. Ghee is
free of casein and lactose and is suitable for people who are allergic
to dairy products. It keeps skin soft, and has anti-aging properties.
Ghee contains naturally occurring CLA, Omega-3, Vitamins A, D, E & K2.
It is free of harmful trans-fats.
Ghee is shelf-stable and we ship worldwide by USPS,
UPS, FedEx or DHL. We offer special discounts to co-ops and buying

WIL–AR Farms is
a small, family farm located near Newville, in south central
Pennsylvania. We have concerns about the health of our land,
our family, and our customers. We do not use chemicals or
hormones on our farm. Working in harmony with nature is our
rule. We are an all-grass based farm, which means that our
animals are raised on pasture.
Limited amounts of a broad range of products including
grassfed beef, veal, lamb, rabbits, pork, chickens, turkeys, and eggs. Raw
milk cheeses, aged at least 60 days, are made right on the farm from
totally grassfed Jersey cows.
We strive to farm in harmony with the seasons. Cycling
our production with nature's seasons must not be compromised. As soon
as we produce food against the seasons, disease, costs, and environmental
degradation escalate. We calve when the deer are fawning, start chicks
when the wild turkey eggs are hatching, and increase our workload when
the days are longer.

any kind. In trying to farm in harmony with nature, we raise
everything on native pasture with the seasons. We are committed
to preserving our land as well as raising healthy, quality
food for ourselves and others.
We raise sheep, chickens, and rabbits.
Currently we have a limited supply of aged raw sheep milk cheese (cracked
pepperjack) pastured chickens (frozen) and rabbit. Our rabbits are currently
raised in a building, but we are working on a pasture growing system
for this summer. Our lambs are raised on pasture, no grain. Our sheep
milk is produced entirely from pasture. Due to cost and availability,
our chickens do receive non-organically grown feed, but with no hormones
or antibiotics, and are moved to fresh pasture 1–2 times daily.
Processing of all products is done by hand by local
small family operations. Fresh products are available from June through
October by pre-order. Frozen chicken, rabbit, and lamb are available
year round. Call, write or e-mail for price and availability. We will
ship, but love to have our customers visit to share the beauty of our

At Wyebrook Farm, we provide an alternative to the industrial food supply. By creating a diverse polyculture on our farm, we produce the healthiest animals and best food without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics.
We raise 100% grass fed beef. They graze on pasture for 9-10 months of the year using rotational grazing techniques. They spend 2-3 months in an open sided barn and are fed only hay.
Our pigs live 100% of the time in wooded areas and their feed consists of what they find in the woods along with some organic but mostly non-certified, non-GMO grains and roasted soybeans.
The sheep are 100% grass fed and graze with the cow herd. The goats occupy the same area as the pigs and eat brush along with a little of the grain provided for the pigs.
Our laying hens and broilers spend 100% of their time on pasture. We raise broilers on pasture from March until October only. The laying hens stay out all year. All poultry eat non-certified but non-GMO grains.
We believe that the only way to guarantee that the food you eat is healthy, safe and nutritious is to know the farmer who produced it. We sell the products of the farm from a historic barn on the farm so that our customers can see our animals and our farming practices. We encourage you to tour the farm and ask us questions.
By purchasing food from Wyebrook Farm, you support the local community and ensure that this part of Chester County retains the agricultural character that has made it one of the most productive and beautiful places in America.
