We started this farm because we wanted to know where our food comes from while raising our animals humanely. Our herd is able to roam on pastures during the day whenever the weather allows, and locked safely in the barn away from predators at night. Our cows, sheep, goats and pigs are mostly grass fed, and we raise them as organic as possible, without antibiotic additives; however, if an animal is sick and requires medical care, we treat them according to current medical standards per veterinarian recommendation. Products will be handled accordingly.

 

While we raise some animals for petting zoo, breeding purpose and personal use, we are committed to provide our customers with quality natural products from our pasture raised, happy animals. We deliver exceptional services from farm directly to the consumer. Since Nigerian Dwarf goat milk has a lot of health benefits, we are producing natural hand made goat milk products which is available for purchase online, for farm pick up, and at local vendor events. As milk production increases, we will be offering goat herd shares for customers interested in goat milk. We have limited time lamb, pork and cow shares throughout the year. We also grow herbs and will be adding seasonal products as advertised.

Our Certification:
Animal Welfare Approved by AGW LOGO FINAL_LR no bkg (6)_edited_edited.jpg
As of the year 2021, Hillside Meadows Farm is A Greener World certified! This is the only certification that assures animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range for their entire lives on an independent farm using truly sustainable, high-welfare farming techniques. Unlike most farm certifiers, AGW’s independent trained auditors visit every farm in the program at least once a year to verify they’re meeting the standards.

The Family Farm

George does the heavy-lifting on the farm. Before leaving for work in the morning, he takes care of the lifestock in the barn. He spends his weekends building and repairing shelters, takes care of pastures and fencing, or hauls hay and feed. Sometimes, when Julian is not busy with college or work, he gets to help with construction or errands.


Peggy handmakes all of the products from scratch, including soaps, lotions, and sugar scrubs. She manages the company's communication and coordination of events. Having almost 30 years of experience as a Registered Nurse, she has successfully created a unique goat milk skincare line fullfilling, "Healthy Products from Happy Animals".

Olivia is the Public Relations and Sales Associate for the company. She designed majority of the website and maintains the promotional content via social media. She is a highschool student and a rider in the Young Guns Equestrian Drill Team. She also milks the goats daily, in the morning and evening.
