At Four Mile River Farm, we strive to raise the healthiest animals possible by providing a natural stress-free environment.
Our cattle are pasture-raised, grazing on local open pasture. In the Winter months when grasses are sparse, they feed on hay from our fields and all-vegetarian corn silage and grain. Our pigs are housed in open pens and are grain and milk fed. Our eggs come from free-range chickens that enjoy a rich natural diet.
Our corn and grain are milled in Connecticut, and pastures are naturally fertilized. We do not use antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones.
We have a clean, locally inspected, modern processing facility right at the farm where we age, cut, vacuum pack and fast freeze our meats. We also have an excellent relationship with Noack's Meats (in Meriden, CT) for the preparation of our quality nitrate free all beef hotdogs and kielbasa.
We do all this for the health and best interests of our animals, and our customers.
