P1040516 Layer Hens

We currently have a flock of about 175 birds. In the warmer months the flock lives out on pasture, with a mobile coop to sleep and nest in. They have lots of access to grass, dirt, and bugs during this time. We supplement our hens' foragings with certified organic grain. In the winter our flock lives in an enclosed area near our farmhouse, with a smaller coop for sleeping and nesting, and a larger hoop house nearby for eating and hanging out in during the day. They walk through the outdoors for a short distance to get between the two, but chickens and New England winters are not really an ideal match, so mostly they stay under cover in the winter. You can purchase our most delicious eggs for $6/dozen at our farm store. 

 

Leora and hogs Pork

For the last few years we had our own breeding pair on the farm and raised two batches of piglets per year for pork. They spent six weeks or so with their mom, then moved out to the woods where they could run and root and grow until they were about six months old and around 200 lbs. We supplemented their foragings with non-GMO grain and vegetable scraps. You can find a wide selection of delectable pork products in our farm store freezers. We are currently heading toward sourcing our pork from a former apprentice, Tyler Sage, who is more hog-focused, so once our own pork runs out you'll find his in our freezers instead.
