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.
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. Their old-school genetics help them flourish on pasture and provides the instinct for them to graze, browse, and forage.
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; and 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!
We are certified Animal Welfare Approved and Grass Fed for both our Kiko goats and Icelandic sheep. 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 is 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 (by appointment) and assorted farmers markets.

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.

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.
