COWS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN PART OF OUR HISTORY and no matter how many things change, having cows has always been a constant on Simmons Farm. In 1999 we began looking for a hearty beef cow to add to the farm. After much consideration we chose the Belted Galloway, a Heritage breed originating in Scotland that thrives on pasture and can handle the harshest New England weather. We currently have a herd of over 50 grassfed belted galloway.
Our Belties are 100% grass fed from start to finish and bred on our farm. In 2008 we began our breeding program of another heritage breed, the Tamworth Pig, one of the oldest breeds of pigs. Much like the “Belties” we chose this red pig for their hardiness and their ability to thrive on pasture.
Throughout the year Simmons Farm offers farm fresh, naturally raised meats and poultry. We do not give any of our Animals antibiotics or growth hormones. We offer Pasture raised poultry, which is poultry raised in wagons and let to graze over our certified organic pasture and vegetable growing land. Chickens and turkeys are both available. Pasture raised pork and grass fed beef are available through our CSA and now at farmers markets and our farm stand.
We are entering our sixth year of cheese! In 2010 we built our Grade A goat dairy. We offer a wide selection of Chevre (a fresh soft goat cheese) . We also begin to milk our three Jersey cows and offer Fromage Blanc (fresh soft cow cheese) cheddar cheese curds and our own sugar free Yoghurt. All of dairy products are made of 100% of our own milk and made weekly on the farm. All of are dairy products are available in the farm stan and at the farmers markets we participate in.
Late winter and early spring are birthing time for the sheep and goats. Stop by the petting zoo to see the babies!
Beef, pork, lamb, goat meat available at the farmers markets.
