We should call her Mrs. Reliable! Petunia had her third litter Friday night right on time 3 months 3 weeks and 3 days from being breed. That is the gestation period for 🐖! On 🎯. Momma and all 14 piglets are happy and healthy! #redwattle #farmlife #pasturedpork #heritagebreed
The two ladies in my life ❤️
Sweet, darling Mayzie. Today marks her 11th year, and despite her wrinkles, slowing stride, and greying coat, she's still the most cheerful creature I've ever met. I think she might also be the gentlest; this sow has been giving toddlers actual piggy back rides since '08.
It'll be a sad day when I can no longer look out a window and see Mayzie with her descendants foraging around our house. She is the pig who made us pig people. She's walked this land longer than any other animal here on the farm, even longer than the youngest Schouten child.
Mayzie is retired now and spends her days greeting guests, wandering the farm, and watching over all her grandpiglets and great-grandpiglets.

Heritage Fire with @boulderbutcher
I’m honored to cook this beautiful grass fed, dry aged Wyoming beef!
These beautiful animals have been on pasture for a minimum of 6 years up to 12 YEARS eating ONLY GRASS on a 40,000+ acre ranch!
Here’s a video we put together from our last trip a couple years back that shows some of the madness!
Farmers Market today, 10-2 in Millerton, NY!
We will have herbs, lettuce, arugula, toy choi, carrots, turnips, asparagus, baby kale, eggs, meat and of course our beautiful peonies! (And a whole lots more). Stop in, say hi, ask questions and buy healthy organic food! (See how happy our farm friend Piers is in that last photo?!?) .

Looka that, I got all the dragons in one picture! From left to right we have Momma Goose, Scooter, Arya, Gus Gus, Cindarelly, Asshole, and Papa Goose. I love my flock of screaming winged beasts and I shan’t be deterred from adding more and more until I have an official goose posse. Have I reached goose girl status yet?
Release the turkeys. First day free ranging.
Their eagerness ensures that they will be extra tasty this year. 🤣🦃🤘
It's poultry time! 30 Freedom Ranger chicks and 16 Broad Breasted Bronze & White turkey poults are tucked under the lamps in their respective houses 🐔🦃
Now it really feels like summer is almost here! Nothing makes me quite as happy as sitting and listening to their happy chorus of peeping 🎶 Or my kids' delight at how dang adorable they all are!!

Good moooooooooorning everybody! #Elvira
would like to share a couple of things with y’all:
1) she’s still being a turd and hasn’t had that calf I’ve been waiting (im)patiently for
2) tomorrow is going to be a bright shiny BEAUTIFUL DAY, and she thinks you should spend it at the @newbraunfelsfarmersmarket
we me 😊 .
We won’t be at the market next Saturday (6/22), so keep that in mind when you are getting your goodies! #selfishcow
Evolution of a Southern Italian classic: Pork and Peppers, with all-natural Berkshire shoulder in a sweet-and-spicy pickled pepper sauce that Chef Joe adapted from his father's recipe. The addition of scalloped potatoes and sautéed broccoli di rape make for an immensely satisfying dish.

Another glorious morning on the farm.
We had 8 turkey chicks hatch over the past few days! Happy to say they are all doing well.
Also, we started transitioning our 5 week old pullets from their brooder to outside!
Nesting!! This #expectantmother
is preparing her house for #piglets
. My pigs have always done this, kind of fascinating, really- now that they aren't in my barn where they escaped the pen and grabbed everything they could- horse blankets, jackets, plastic, my recycling, and bending bike tires, etc. Good luck making the food bucket comfortable! #heritagebreed #gloustershireoldspots #gos
It’s arguably the most overused buzzword in the farming/meat industry at the current moment. There’s a lot of misconception of what it actually means and what it entails. I’ll never forget a conversation I had early on with a butcher.... “grass fed? I often call it grass starved”... at the time it didn’t make sense but a few years into raising livestock I understand. Grass fed doesn’t always mean they’re properly fed or have adequate forage available to them at all times. If the fields the animals graze on look like the 18th green🏌️♂️there’s reason to question. We’re fully transparent in our operation and welcome customers to come see for themselves the condition of the animals and discuss their respective feed programs. If you buy local have you ever had a tour of the farm? Are they open to discussing what their nutrition program is?
Whether you buy from us or one of the many other amazing local producers don’t be afraid to ask!
