The hens lay a mix of brown, white and blue-green eggs. They are raised cage-free without hormones or antibiotics. They are fed conventional grain and discarded garden and grocery produce. You can stop by the farm store and pack your own eggs by the dozen or individually. Bring your own carton from home or buy a new carton for $0.75. Due to the popularity of our eggs, there is a one-dozen limit per household per day.

The chickens are raised on pasture in portable pens. Chicks are purchased and raised for 10-12 weeks. They roam during the day eating grass, bugs and worms and are penned at night for protection from predators. They are fed grain from local farms transitioning to organic (chemical-free but uncertified) and receive no hormones or antibiotics.
Chickens are processed in July or August.

Bronze breasted and eastern white turkeys are raised at Gale Woods. The baby poults arrive in June. After three weeks inside, they live on pasture until Thanksgiving. They are fed grain from farms transitioning to organic (chemical-free, but uncertified) and receive no hormones or antibiotics. Whole, fresh (not frozen) turkeys are available for pick-up the week of Thanksgiving.

100% Grass-fed Beef
The beef cattle are 100% grass-fed and pasture-raised. In the winter they are fed organically grown hay from Gale Woods. Galloway beef cattle are raised, a breed selected for their ability to thrive on pasture and the superior taste of the meat. Since this beef is extremely lean, it is important that it is cooked slowly using a lower temperature.
Two-year-old steers are processed 2-3 times per year into a variety of cuts including steaks, roasts, short-ribs, ground beef and beef patties.
|Beef patties (4 preformed patties/package)
|Steaks (ribeye, sirloin, T-bone, porterhouse, New York strip)
|Organs (liver, heart, tongue)
The sheep are raised on pasture during the spring, summer and fall months. They are fed conventional grain from other farms and organically-grown hay from Gale Woods. Eight-month old lambs are processed in late fall into a variety of cuts including chops, ground, leg and roast.
|Bone-in leg of lamb
|Boneless leg of lamb
|Organ meat: kidneys, liver, heart, tongue
Pigs are raised on pasture from late spring through mid-fall. They receive some of their nutrition by grazing on cover crops planted in the gardens during non-vegetable production years. They are also fed conventional grain and discarded garden and grocery produce.
