Production Practices
rotational grass grazing and organic pasture.

Grazing, Pasture over-seeding and Nutrient Management Practices
We graze on pastures not treated with chemicals, and we raise lambs and beef on our certified organic pastures year-round as well as feed organic haylage. All livestock feed outdoors unless inclement weather or lambing, then barns are available during these times. We do treat our flocks for de-worming and annual vaccines for the full health of the animals as necessary under the direction of veterinary supervision. All of our sheep are 100% Katahdin and we have a smaller flock of 100% registered Shropshires and all our lambs are born and raised here on our farm. Our Angus as well as Hereford beef stock is still growing and are the calves are also born and raised organic on our farm.
