Stillmeadow Farm, in Metchosin, produces sheep, hogs and chickens as well as hay and several varieties of grain. The farm has been in continual operation for over six decades.
We strive to raise healthy livestock and crops in an environmentally sustainable manner. Our animals are treated well - lots of green grass for sheep, straw and bedding for pigs to root in, and fresh air for our chickens. We use manures to build soil fertility, and we rotate crops to prevent disease.
Our stock includes purebred Dorset sheep, as well as rare- and endangered breeds of hog such as Berkshire, Large Black and Tamworth.
We believe in the role agriculture has in healthy communities, and host many tours for schools and groups. It is a highlight to watch children (okay, adults too!) interact with the pigs and sheep.
