What's on the table
Chicken eggs: In season at our roadside stand!
Our flock of laying hens take part in our rotational grazing system along with the sheep. They always have access to pasture and grain milled locally at Dexter Mill, and we supplement their diet with seasonal produce whenever we can. We have a variety of breeds that lay colors ranging from cream, blue, green, classic brown, and deep chocolate.
Stocked soon as the hens lay them at our roadside stand.

Duck eggs: Expected again Spring 2023
Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs, and they have a richer yolk! We especially love them for baking. Our Runner Ducks rule the roost at Bellwether Farm: They are free-range, keep our pastures free of slugs and ticks, and provide us with eggs--with the added bonus of being adorable and (at times) providing comic relief!
Available seasonally: Shetland Lamb & Pasture-raised Chicken
Use the form below to get on the list for our next available slot! Shetland lamb is tender and flavorful, and its smaller size means you can fill your freezer ethically without breaking the bank. Grass-fed lamb is lean, tender, and delicious. We sell by the whole or half lamb, cut to your specifications. If this is your first time buying a side of lamb, we can offer advice on our favorite cuts and recipes.
Occasionally we raise heritage cross chickens for the table. Just like our layers, they're raised on grass with access to fresh pasture daily, and we are constantly hearing how much more flavor they have than the ones you can buy from the supermarket! We raise a Barred Rock/Sussex cross that has a more natural growth rate and behavior than the chickens you can get from the store. This means it takes them a little longer to get to your plate, but we think they're worth the wait!
Available seasonally: Fruits & Vegetables
Because we dedicate so much space to livestock, space for a garden is at a premium. We focus on just a few produce specialties that are well-suited to the space we have. In 2022 we produced tomatoes, garlic, and a variety of started plants for your own garden. In 2023 we hope to produce more tomatoes, squashes, raspberries, and plant starts. Keep your eye out for updates as the time draws nearer. We've also planted a small grove of Pawpaw trees, which we're hoping begin to produce fruit in 2025.
Have questions, or want to make a reservation?
We want our customers to know that each of our animals is raised humanely and compassionately, in an environment where they're free to express their natural hehaviors and instincts.
