About The Farm

Sweet Grass Farm is where Wendy raises the livestock for Meadow Raised Meats. Sweet Grass Farm is a 60 acre grass farm in Upstate New York, about 45 minutes east of Syracuse. Beef, pork, lamb, veal, chicken, turkey and brown egg layers are raised on pasture, without any antibiotics or hormones. The beef and lamb are completely grass finished, while the other livestock are supplemented with an organic grain mix. Wendy focuses on providing a natural enviroment for the livestock to develop at their own pace and on the foods that their bodies are built to utilize. Livestock are rotated over the farm and neighboring grass land, so that they are always on fresh clean pasture during the grazing season. During the winter, the sheep and beef are fed hay that is harvested from local meadows.

Wendy has been farming all her life, but it wasn't until moving to the central New York area in 1997 that she was able to purchase a farm big enough to produce enough to have meat to sell. Meat is sold directly at the farm, at the Regional Farmer's Market in Syracuse (Saturday, year-round), and via www.meadowraisedmeats.com. The goat is raised at a grass farm in Little Falls, NY.

Wendy farms by herself, hiring help for sheep shearing and chicken processing, and to assist with customers at the regional market. The poultry are processed at the farm under a USDA exemption. The other livestock are processed at Kelley Meats, a small family-owned and operated USDA inspected processing plant in Taberg, NY.

Thanks for visiting Sweet Grass Farm. If you travel this direction, you can make an appointment to visit the farm in reality. The farm is not set up as a petting zoo or as a tourist "destination". Sweet Grass Farm is a very busy, old-fashioned farm and you might very well get put to work when you arrive!
