About Our Farm
We are a small farm located in Gilmanton, N.H. We pride ourselves on raising all natural, heritage breed animals and all natural, heirloom variety vegetables.We are members of the Small and Beginner Farmers of N.H. and the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy. At this time, we haven't been able to find an organic feed for our goats so, we are not certified organic,however,our pigs, chickens and turkeys are fed mostly organic certified food and our vegies are grown with only organic fertilizers and we only use certified organic sprays . Most of our seeds are from our own previous harvests and seedlings from certified growers. My wife pointed out that our feed costs twice as much as the non organic but I like knowing that there are No antibiotics,GMOs or growth hormones, in fact there are no artificial or chemical indgredients of any kind. Our chickens and turkeys get to free-range all over ( thankfully our neighbors are very understanding). This year we are raising Standard Bronze turkeys. They are a heritage breed that are what most people think of when they think of what a turkey looks like (not white) . We are also raising White Hollands. They are known for their wide breasts and short legs. We got them because they have very good to excellent meat and are endangered on the ALBC
(American Livestock Breeds Conservency) list. We have Large Black Hogs for the same reason. They are critical on the ALBC list. They are also a very friendly and easy to raise. They are a pig that has a nice marbling of fat which produces a delicious ,tender and moist meat.
