pastures surround the store. These are the same animals from which we

lamb and chicken is sold by the cut and the meat is rotated using FIFO

our customers. Since we sell what we raise and carry limited amounts of
meat, we encourage you to email or call for the availability of particular cuts before coming to the Farm Store.
