Arbutus Hill Farm offers naturally raised
meats and organic vegetables. It is 50 acres of fields and forest,
a certified Tree Farm. It is a small operation, just me. I have a Masters
in Environmental Resource Management so my respect in caring for my
land is a major priority. It is my home and sanctuary.
I raise grass-fed beef, and lamb as
well as pork. The pigs are fed grain, are on pasture, receive
a steady flow of weeds from the garden and cracked corn. I sell meat
by the retail cut or families can buy whole or half animals.
I began farming in 1994 at the ripe age of 43 wishing
to raise my own food. I have become better at farming over the years
and am self-sustaining. Arbutus Hill Farm meats & veggies are carried
by several local stores, are featured in two local farmers markets and
enjoy a solid repeat customer base.
I sell meat and garlic year round and in 2007
added a greenhouse hoping to extend my growing season. It is a blessing,
but also a major learning curve. So this spring I hope to have an early
crop of lettuce, spinach, kale.

Brookfield Farm. The Gowdy
family at Brookfield Farm has been raising Angus cross cattle since
1994. Our beef cattle are finished on our pastures, dry hay, and the
balage that we round bale ourselves. We are certified
have been since 2001. We are convinced that our cattle are happier
and healthier than ever before.
We bought our first cow-calf pairs
on our honeymoon trip along the New Hampshire Sea Coast in 1992, settling
first near Walpole Massachusetts, and then moving to Walpole New Hampshire.
Starting with five angus cows and their heifers we grew our beef herd
to twenty five brood cows. In the last few years we have made some
changes, diversified; we still have about five beef cows, but are milking
twenty Normandy Cross cows, raise some lamb on pasture, and have a
herd of Boer Goats.
We sell our grass fed meats (100% grass fed beef,
lamb, meadow veal, and boer goat meat) by the retail cut, quarter or
side. You can purchase one nice steak or fifty pounds of burger, or
other types and cuts depending on availability. Come visit the farm,
or you can purchase our products at the Walpole
Farmers Market, Fridays
from May – October on
the Walpole, NH Common.
Please give us a call, leave us a message,
or send an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

May-November, and fed local hay throughout the winter. Our pigs are
pastured in a huge forested area where they root day and night. Our
chickens, ducks and turkeys are entirely free-range. Our poultry and
pigs are fed certified organic grain to complement the generous pasture
space they are provided. All of our animals are 100% antibiotic and

truly thrive in their natural environment and are always handled humanely.
We believe meat raised in this way, naturally tastes better, and provides
healthy essential fatty acids and an important guarantee to customers.
Our vision is grounded in a strong belief that
livestock can live healthy, natural lives and families can maintain
a humble life farming with the rhythms of the seasons. We believe that
to really change the food system, we need small farms in every community

a cultural sensitivity that reflects local values. Come join us by

Rocky Meadow Farm is the home of a small
herd of solid color Galloways. We provide grass fed, grass-finished beef raised
in an animal friendly environment, free of hormones, artificial food
additives, animal byproducts, or unnecessary antibiotics. Our animals
graze exclusively on our own pastures, which we have planted ourselves
with a seed mixture to provide optimal nutrition.
The meat is processed at an USDA-inspected plant,
and is sold by whole carcass or sides, where customers can specify preferred
meat cut selection or by smaller mixed boxes of various cuts.

Schoolhouse Farm is a small pasture-based
farm located in Tamworth, New Hampshire. We manage a flock of grass-fed
registered Icelandic sheep that are bred for sale as either breeding
stock or for meat. Our animals rotationally graze on fertile pasture
from early spring through late fall. In winter months the flock is fed
mixed grass, alfalfa and legume hay from our own hayfields. We do not
feed any hay or forage that we didn't grow and harvest ourselves.
We are very attentive to our animals and our fields and are consistently
striving to improve the quality of both. As Gene Logsdon writes in All
Flesh is Grass, the quality of our meat is only as good as the
quality of our pastures. We only apply mineral and soil amendments
that are approved for organic certification when necessary and depend
primarily upon our own bulk compost to enrich the soil and restore
vital nutrients. We regularly monitor lab results of soil samples and
hay/forage samples to determine nutrient composition and assist us
in determining which fields are in need of supplementation. A no-till
conservation seeder is used to overseed our fields with a wide variety
of grasses, legumes, brassica and forbs. Our goal is to provide a very
diversified diet of plants that primitive ruminants would have grazed
in the wild.
We never use any chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides or preservatives
on our fields or dry forage. The sheep are provided with free choice
minerals and kelp mix throughout the year, and newborn lambs are given
a booster of selenium and vitamin E shortly after birth. We never use
any growth hormones, unnecessary antibiotics or other invasive treatments
to our flock. Instead, clean water, fresh air and nutritious pastures
are all we really need to support healthy contented animals.
Lamb is available in frozen cryovac
packages. We sell only whole carcass quality, which usually averages
between 40 and 50 pounds of packaged lamb. Custom cut sheets are available,
or we can suggest popular choices. Please visit our website for more
information about our meat sales, hay, compost, or other products. Thank
you. Norman and Wendy.

Steve Normanton: I am originally from South
Africa, where I worked in the livestock trade the conventional, agribusiness
in New England, I have raised grass-fed beef for over ten years, with
a focus on sustainability and holistic principles. I now raise pastured pork,
pastured chicken, pastured eggs, and 100% grass-fed beef on
65 acres on the banks of the Merrimack River. My pastures are certified
organic by the State of New Hampshire.
My cattle graze on pasture throughout the
growing season, and I feed them certified organic hay in the winter.
They are never fed corn or other grain, even for “handling” purposes.
I sell beef in
bulk and by the cut. I harvest my cattle when they have reached their
full potential of quality, which means the largest quantities are available
in the fall. Therefore, I recommend pre-ordering for fall delivery.
All my beef is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.
My pigs live and forage outdoors, and I supplement their diet with
organic formulated pig grain. My pork is harvested in the fall,
and is available in bulk and by the cut as long as supplies last. All
my pork is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.
I raise my meat chickens outdoors on pasture in a day-range system,
which allows them to forage for bugs and living plants. I supplement
their diet with organic formulated chicken grain. I process the birds
on-farm (exempt from USDA inspection) June through October. I sell
fresh or frozen whole chickens (i.e. plucked and cleaned but
not cut up into parts).
My laying hens, like the meat chickens, forage outdoors on pasture
in the growing season, and also get organic formulated layer grain. Eggs are

This land was originally farmed beginning
in 1780 by John Darling and his children. As the children grew and
married, John gave them land to homestead. The land was purchased by
The Historic Pine Grove Springs Hotel on Lake Spofford. During
the late 1800s through the beginning of the twentieth century, it provided
the vegetables, beef and lamb required for what was a famous and
vacation destination for city folks up and down the East Coast, from
New York and Boston.
So, bring the children to visit with the
animals and pick some blueberries or take a hike down to see the beaver
pond. We would love to have
