At Dayspring Farm we raise Grass-fed Katahdin lambs because
this American lamb breed which is a hair sheep naturally produces mild
tasting lamb meat. We have found this sheep breed, if properly
managed, has the ability to grow and finish efficiently from grass
and stored grass feeds. Our cattle are raised naturally on pasture
grasses, legumes and forbs grown on the hills of our farm in Southeastern
Water for our animals is provided from a dedicated underground spring
or from our driven well which is the same water source we use at our
home for drinking. Both of these water sources are rich in minerals
from deep in the earth. The grass we grow is from re-mineralized soils
which we see as the source of health for our stock, plants, and ultimately
for ourselves and others who enjoy our special meats. In addition we
supplement our stock with organic kelp meal (seaweed) which is a complete
source of trace minerals as well as with mineral salt.
Our sheep and lambs are provided with a healthy and peaceful environment
with plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise. We take pride in how
we husband our stock and endeavor to be good stewards of the land and
animals, treating both with respect and care.
Breeding stock is sold when available and meat
regularly by appointment at the farm. We also sell and ship frozen
meat to customers in New England and eastern New York. Orders can be
placed on our online store by visiting our web site.

Vermont Natural Beef operates on over 500 acres of rolling pastures and meadows in the lower Champlain Valley of Vermont. Starting in late April, our 165 yearling beef feeders begin a 6-month-long managed pasture rotation, culminating in a well finished, naturally raised beef by October or November. These animals are never confined and are systematically rotated through lush regrowth pastures of clover, alfalfa and grass. They live and grow the way Mother Nature intended for large ruminants to live.
In the fall we market our beef, primarily as whole beef or sides (1/2 beef), for freezer stock directly to our customers in New York and New England. Demand is greater than supply so we sell on a first come, first served basis. Since 80% to 85% of our customers reorder every year and we get a lot of referral customers from existing customers, there are not a lot of extra sides available, so if you are interested please call as soon as possible. We will be happy to answer any questions and if you order, we will help you fill out a cut sheet to specify every detail of the cutting and packaging process that takes place at a local, family owned USDA-inspected butcher shop.
From the field to the vacuum-packed cuts delivered to your freezer, when you deal with Vermont Natural Beef you deal with the owner and his family because no one else works there! When you finally meet your meat we will make sure the pleasure is all yours! Visit our website or give us a call.
