Freeman Homestead is a family-owned and operated farm in western NY, producing high quality, delicious and nutritious meats and eggs since 1997. They practice seasonal farming where the production year matches the natural rhythm of the seasons. They use management-intensive grazing and holistic practices to create a biological farming system that is beneficial for the animals, environment, consumers and community.
On the fields, absolutely no pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilizers are used. Instead, their own organic compost made on the farm from the winter bedding, and natural minerals are applied to the land. During the grazing season, the animals are outside, giving them an abundance of fresh air, sunlight, and organically fertilized pastures. During the winter they are housed in buildings for protection and bedded with organic matter used for fertilizing the fields.
No antibiotics, medications, or fast-growth hormones are used on the animals sold from their farm. The focus of the farm is on the overall well-being of the animals, the positive impact on the environment and community, and the nutritional quality and taste of the product offered to the customers.
Products offered include: 100% forage/grass fed and finished lamb and beef; and eggs from pastured hens. Because the digestive system of the poultry is different from the ruminating sheep and cows, the chickens receive high quality grain from a local mill in addition to grass and forage.
Eggs are available seasonally; meat is available year around. Saturday deliveries are made periodically to the Buffalo area.
Lamb halves and beef quarters can be cut to your specifications by preordering. Several varieties of meat cuts are currently available at the farm.
