Our diversified livestock are free-range, raised humanely on lush oceanfront pasture free from synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. They are an integral part of our regenerative farm plan to keep our grasses vegetative and productive, our soils healthy, and our farmland utilized to its fullest potential.
Our meat products are also for sale in our Farm Store, open 8am-8pm daily, May–October.
Our beef comes from heifers and cows that have been raised here at Wolfe’s Neck, being fed primarily pasture, baleage, and hay. Our cattle are supplemented with grain to provide a more balanced diet through the entirety of their life. Our beef is processed by Herring Brothers, a small family-run abattoir in Maine. Beef is available for bulk order as well as by the whole, half, quarter and eighth of an animal.
A variety of cuts (steaks, ribs, hot dogs, hamburgers, ground beef, and more) are available for purchase in the Farm Store from June–October.
Our lambs are raised almost entirely on lush oceanfront grass, the only exception being during lambing season when lambs are given access to a “starter” grain – a high-energy, highly palatable feed that helps get the lambs off to a great start. After weaning, lambs are turned onto our carefully managed pastures, grazing smaller fields and periphery areas that our cows and heifers don’t get to. Our lambs and other diversified livestock are an integral part of our regenerative farm plan to keep our grasses vegetative and productive, our soils healthy, and our farm land utilized to its fullest potential.
Our American Mulefoot Hogs are raised on a diet of organic milk and vegetable gleanings from our farm and supplemented with organic grain. Pork is available by pre-order for a half or quarter pig, consisting of individually packaged cuts. Please inquire if you are interested in ordering a whole pig.
A variety of cuts (bacon, breakfast sausages, chorizo, other sausages) are available for purchase in the Farm Store from May–October.
Our laying hens lead a very peaceful, natural life. They are never confined to a cage and are given access to free range every day. They can take dust baths, socialize, roost, scratch, and eat insects to their little hearts’ content. The flock follows our cows or sheep around their pasture, about three days behind the paddock where the grazers were. This allows our precious dung beetle population to go to work burying the manure; we wouldn’t want our hens to come along and eat them up. Hen manure is wonderful for pasture! Because the hens fertilize for us, that reduces the amount of chicken manure we need to buy in each year to maintain fertility on our farm. You simply cannot beat the flavor and color of fresh, fresh eggs from pasture-raised hens!
Fresh eggs are available for purchase in the Farm Store from May–October.
