As sustainable family owned farm which produces organic dairy, grass-fed beef, humanely raised veal, pasture-raised poultry, raw milk, pasture raised eggs, emu oil and more.
Applecheek Farm is a certified organic, diversified and sustainable family owned farm located in beautiful Hyde Park, Vermont. Our farm produces organic dairy, grass-fed beef, humanely raised veal, pasture-raised poultry, raw milk and emu oil.
Our philosophy is simple. We strive to produce food that encompasses dignity, local economy, optimal nutrition and restores the ecological capital in our soils.
Grass-fed beef is the “new red meat” and we are taking it very serious here at Applecheek Farm. We use heritage breed genetics such as Devons and Shorthorns to raise meats that acquire excellent marbling, texture, and flavor. We take great pride in both raising and finishing our beef on grass, which produces a superior taste and nutritional volume in comparison to conventional grain fed cattle.
Our cows are raised on pasture and consume large amounts of beautiful, nutrient dense grass without any pesticides or harmful chemicals.
Our grazing system is done in a managed, rotational pattern that builds ecological resilience and fertility within our soils. In return, this method sequesters carbon at a very high rate unlike non sustainable farming operations.
