BOTL Farm is a pasture-based, sustainability-focused livestock farm situated on 41 acres of transitional silvopasture in the Quiet Corner of Connecticut. We run a regenerative farm performing intensively managed rotational grazing year-round for as long as weather and grass production allow. All our animals are Animal Welfare Approved, and our sheep and goats are Certified Grassfed by A Greener World. We have designed and developed our farm so that our animals can express their natural behaviors. The animals live on pasture all year long and are never confined, they breed according to their natural cycles and birth unassisted on pasture, plus they have the room to explore and interact with their surroundings. Raising animals in this way makes our farm sustainable compared to conventional farming practices �" the animals are improving the quality and fertility of the land, not to mention their meat tastes exceptional! Focusing on heritage breed animals is a natural choice for our farm and we choose breeds that can thrive in the New England climate of hot summers and cold winters. Our Kiko goats and Icelandic sheep (lamb) are only fed grass. Typically harvested in the fall, frozen and vacuum sealed cuts of goat and lamb are available until they run out. Our pigs (pork) are Mangalitsa/Berkshire/Large Black crosses. They are fed soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, and organic feed. Frozen and vacuum sealed cuts of pork and meat boxes are available year-round. Our laying flock of chickens are a mix of heritage laying hens. They are fed soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, and organic feed. They are rotationally grazed behind our sheep, goats, and pigs. Multicolored eggs are available year-round and stew birds are harvested in the winter. We sell directly to customers at our farm and assorted farmers markets year-round; see our website for details.
