What we Raise

The View from our Porch

When we step out onto our front porch each morning, the cattle gently grazing is where our gazes first fall.  And as we sip our cups of coffee and prepare for the day, we’re reminded of the great honor it is to raise these animals.

We’ve chosen to grow livestock that would have originally been on this ground 250 years ago when it was first parceled as “Molly’s Fancy” Farm.  Just as our ancestors grew these animals for their flavor and their ability to thrive on this land, we continue in this tradition.

Berkshire Hogs

Berkshire meat is elegant, luscious and smooth. Because of the excellent muscle quality of Berkshire pigs, consumers experience pork that is superior in taste and eating qualities when compared to most other breeds. The streaks of fat that run through Berkshire meat gives it a round and buttery flavor that melts on the tongue. The firm and substantial texture of Berkshire meat was so cherished by the British monarchy that they exported the breed all over the world, including Japan where it is called “Kurobuta” meaning “black pig”.

Dexter Beef Cattle

Pound for pound, no bovine can match the diversity of Dexter cattle, one of the smallest cattle breeds. Standing just 36 to 44 inches at the shoulder, Dexters are the perfect old-fashioned, family cow. Gentle, versatile, and economical, Dexters efficiently turn pasture into rich milk and lean meat. Dexter meat is of good quality, well-marbled, very tasty, and very lean. In recent years, interest in Dexter cattle has surged worldwide.
