Jordan Farm's objective is to produce the highest quality grass fed beef possible;
we raise 100% grass fed Hereford cattle on our small farm in S. Dartmouth, MA.
Our animals are rotationally grazed with sound, natural farming practices that keeps our animals healthy and growing
with no need for wormers, hormones or antibiotics. We are not certified organic as we buy some of our winter feed from
non-certified fields and we do vaccinate our breeding cows. Jordan Farm is fortunate to be located in an ideal grass
farming area with mild winters, reasonable summer conditions and long falls.
We only harvest and sell our young steers, approximately
24-30 months old. All our beef is frozen in individually vacuum sealed packages and is USDA slaughtered and butchered
in nearby Rhode Island. Our beef is sold off the web site or by appointment at the farm; please see the price list on the web site.
We will also arrange for delivery in the SE Mass and RI area, including Boston.

Sanford Farm is a family farm raising grass-fed Angus-Hereford cross beef. The beef is available in fall and early winter, and occasionally in early summer with a steer held over the winter.
Our beef animals are bred, born, and raised on a closed farm, in a low stress rotation system, going on new grass every 1 or 2 days. They only eat grass with no subtherapeutic antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical pesticides. Their winter feed is hay produced on this farm and one or two others. The only grain they see is the bait necessary to lure them into the headgates for low stress handling.
They are processed in a USDA inspected facility, and then aged for a week or ten days before butchering. The animal is divided into 4 equal quarters, containing one fourth of the different cuts, which are freezer wrapped, labeled and weighed. The current price is $7/lb. The quarters weigh between 80 and 100lbs, depending on the size of the animal.
We are also associated with another grass based farm in Greene, RI, that follows the same protocols for raising and processing their animals.

Watson Farm Red Devons are selected for tenderness, intramuscular marbling, mothering ability, and temperament to produce the highest quality, tender, and flavorful beef available to the local market.
