Welcome to DewGreen, our tiny-mighty farm on a hill in Ashfield, Massachusetts where we raise pastured heritage pigs, lambs and poultry for your table. See what is on sale now, visit our farm products page to see the full range of our offerings, and take a tour of the Ashfield Meat CSA, our collaborative venture with Steady Lane Farm, where our two farms offer grass-fed beef, pastured pork, pastured lamb, and locally-sourced broilers.
As grass farmers, we understand that pasture farming is climate action, as grazing animals remove carbon from the atmosphere and return it to the soil. Our flocks also help restore soil biology with the nutrients in their manure and urine. In winter they enjoy top quality local hay, organic minerals plus nutrient-dense foods. We find that these practices ensure high levels of soil and animal health, and as a result we have not used antibiotics, chemical de-wormers, tick repellents or synthetic fertilizers since 2013.
Besides our ongoing apprenticeship to the soil, DewGreen teaches us to deepen and widen our hearts more than we could ever imagine: Farming has incredible heart-breaks, like when an animal dies after you sit with him night after night, and it has priceless moments like when you find yourself riding a sheep rodeo because you straddled the sheep to do a health check and he takes off with you on him, 'cause you didn't lift his chin to keep him still.
It is a wonderful life and we are privileged to share its fruits with you. Thank you for visiting us.
