Meet the Farm Animals

The following is a list of animals found on participating SOIL SISTERS farms. 

 

From goats to sheep and chickens to pigs, the soil sisters believe in diversity on their biologically rich and ecologically connected farms.  Nearly all the animals are raised on pasture, without being injected with growth hormones or routinely administered antibiotics.  They are cared for humanely.  

 

The listing below provides the name of the farm raising the livestock and, when available, the breed of the animal.  The farms sell their products to the public in various ways, including at farmers' markets, via a community supported agriculture (CSA) share model or on farm (depending on regulations related to meat products).

 

Thanks for your support of the local and sustainable food system.  Every dollar you spend supports sustainable family farms and a vibrant local economy.
