Winter feed is homegrown hay or haylage from our hayfields. To promote healthly soil and animals, we use mostly organic practices at this time, but we are not organic certified.

Sales are made by appointment on availibility. Processing is done at a USDA approved slaughterhouse. Call or e-mail for details.

Jordan Farm's objective is to produce the highest quality grass fed beef possible; we raise 100% grass fed Hereford cattle on our small farm in S. Dartmouth, MA.

Our animals are rotationally grazed with sound, natural farming practices that keeps our animals healthy and growing with no need for wormers, hormones or antibiotics. We are not certified organic as we buy some of our winter feed from non-certified fields and we do vaccinate our breeding cows. Jordan Farm is fortunate to be located in an ideal grass farming area with mild winters, reasonable summer conditions and long falls.

We only harvest and sell our young steers, approximately 24-30 months old. All our beef is frozen in individually vacuum sealed packages and is USDA slaughtered and butchered in nearby Rhode Island. Our beef is sold off the web site or by appointment at the farm; please see the price list on the web site.

We will also arrange for delivery in the SE Mass and RI area, including Boston.

Rhodemont Farm is proud to offer you superior natural Angus beef that is raised in Corinth Corners, Vermont and Coventry, RI. Angus Cattle are chosen for their heartiness and ability to perform well on a pure grass diet. We raise our animals using the practices of sustainable agriculture and rotational grazing, keeping our pastures productive and healthy. Our cows are provided with a peaceful and healthy environment with plenty of fresh air, sunshine and exercise.

Pasture grass and stored grass products are raised organically with no fertilizer and no pesticides (not certified). We believe very strongly that healthy animals provide us with healthy food. Water is provided from a dedicated underground spring which is the same water we use. This water source is rich in minerals. Our animals are totally vegetarian fed, with no added hormones, steroids, animal byproducts or antibiotics.

Our meat is prepared in a small USDA inspected processing plant, aged, hand cut and cryovac sealed for maximum freshness. We provide our beef to small retail outlets (e.g., Alternative Food Co-op, Wakefield, RI) and consumers. We stock most cuts of beef here at our Rhode Island Farm. Custom orders with advance notice are welcome. Beef available as retail cuts, and quarter, half and whole cuts. Beef is available year round.

• Natural Angus Beef
• New England Raised
• No Added Hormones
• No Antibiotics Used

Sanford Farm is a family farm raising grassfed beefalo beef. The beef is available primarily in July and throughout the fall and early winter, after our two grass seasons.

Beefalo is a cross between bovine and bison, and is naturally low in fat and cholesterol, and naturally delicious. Ours are grazed on a closed farm, in a rotation system, going on new grass every 1 or 2 days. They only eat grass (from fields that have never seen chemical fertilizers), with no sub-therapeutic antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical pesticides, wormers, or fertilizers (our only fertilizer is aged poultry manure). Their winter feed is hay produced locally on this farm and one or two others. They are processed in a small USDA inspected facility in Johnston, RI, and then hung (aged) for 3 weeks. The cow is then divided into 4 equal quarters, freezer wrapped, and labeled. The quarters average 80–90 pounds.

Due to rising costs, especially fuel costs (for making hay), the price of beef is increasing to $5.50 per pound. It is still totally grass fed, with only enough grain to bait them into the headgates occasionally, and no supplements.

Sanford Farm, Ted Sanford, 60 Liberty Church Road, Exeter RI 02822. (401) 294-3145.

The Watson Farm is a 265-acre, seaside farm, preserved by Historic New England and managed by Heather and Don Minto since 1980. The farm produces pasture-raised Red Devon Cattle and Romney Sheep. Red Devons have provided genetics for superior performance on a grass based diet for centuries. Watson Farm Red Devons are selected for tenderness, intramuscular marbling, mothering ability, and temperament to produce the highest quality, tender, and flavorful beef available to the local market. Romney Sheep are a dual purpose breed that produce sweet meat and lustrous wool. All of our wool is used to produce our "Conanicut Island Blanket."

"Conanicut Island Grass Fed" beef and lamb is 100% pasture-raised and grass finished on a system of intensively managed pasture rotations. No grain, antibiotics, or hormones are used. Kelp, salt, and minerals are available to the livestock at all times. Our grassland is constantly being improved through innovative methods to promote healthy soil, forages, and livestock.

Our beef is sold directly to families in portion packs of approximately 30 pounds, as well as by the quarter on a pre-order basis. Whole or half lambs are also available. All of our product is USDA inspected, cut, cryovac-wrapped, labeled, and flash frozen for the highest quality.

The Watson Farm is open for self guided tours on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday from 1-5. Stroll the fields and enjoy the pastoral seaside farm, gardens, shoreline, and grazing animals. Our retail store is open as well during this time frame, or customers can call ahead to set up an appointment.

Watson Farm "Conanicut Island Grass Fed," Heather and Don Minto, 455 North Road, Jamestown RI 02835. (401) 423-0005.
