Construction has begun on a barn to overwinter our new herd of Belted Galloways. This summer we welcomed 20 head of cattle onto the property from Meadow View Farm in Lyndonville. The new pack barn will house our herd of cattle and our pigs over the winter.
The Belted Galloway (Beltie for short) is a heritage beef breed of cattle originating from Galloway in the west side of southern Scotland. They are well-suited for grazing pasture and can be seen grazing the property from Mt. Philo Road. We use regenerative planned grazing techniques, moving our cattle, pigs, sheep, and poultry in a rotational system.
Working with our partners at The Weather Hill Company the barn design will match the other historic barns on the property and will blend into the iconic Vermont landscape. For questions or more information, you can call us at (802) 539-2912.
