PT Farm

Haverhill, NH

Pete and Tara Roy (and their 5 kids) run their farm located in Haverhill, NH with the utmost pride and care for animal welfare and well being. Their cows are pasture raised and finished on hay and silage that they grow on the farm themselves! PT Farm also has a USDA inspected processing facility on-site so that their animals don’t have to deal with the stress of being transported.

Winter Hill Farm

Freeport, ME

Located in Freeport, Winter Hill is run by Steve and his wife Sarah who took over in 2011. The farm is permanently protected with an agricultural easement thanks to the Freeport Conservation trust. Along with heritage Berkshire pigs, they maintain a heard of Jersey and Randall cows who’s milk is used to produce their ACS Award winning cheese that we also feature in the shop. The spent whey (and cheese that doesn’t quite meet up to their standards) is fed to the pig’s which makes their fat a gorgeous, creamy white with a sweetness that is unlike any other.

Breezy Hill Farm

South Berwick, ME

Tom and Betsey Hasty own and operate this small, South Berwick farm and specialize in natural raised pork and beef. They do not use synthetic chemicals, routine antibiotics or added hormones. Their pigs are grass fed with grain supplement (grain and milk curd).

Valley View Farm

Auburn, ME

Kathy has been farming the property since the 90’s. She began with flowers and vegetables, gradually increasing production and delving into animal husbandry. The Valley View Farm philosophy is really quite simple; enjoy life and leave the planet better off than when we arrived. Toward that end, they do not use pesticides and have minimized their use of tractors by allowing their pigs, goats, sheep and cows to clear pastures and till and fertilize the land.

Dog Patch Farm

Washington, ME

As a fed up mother and consumer, Sue decided to start raising her own family’s meat back in 2012. After great success, she decided to include her extended family and before she knew it, she owned a farm. Located in Washington, Maine. Dog Patch is one of the few farms that raise Mulefoot hogs, a rare, heritage breed. All of her pigs are born on-farm, and are free to roam, forage and be pigs!
