Why Buy from Cairncrest Farm?

When you purchase grass-fed beef, lamb, or pastured pork from our farm, your support makes a difference:

~Fertility goes to feed healthy, verdant New York pastures instead of hypoxic dead zones in the Chesapeake Bay and Gulf of Mexico.

~Cows live in a herd eating fresh grass and hay instead of finishing their lives on a dirt feedlot eating corn.

~Pigs root, graze, and wallow outdoors instead of being crammed into huge, slat-floored barns.

~Grass-fed lambs improve field species composition by eating goldenrod, burdock and other weeds instead of contributing to desertification and the destruction of fragile ecosystems in Australia.

~Ruminants on well managed, permanent pastures help sequester carbon instead of causing the slash-and-burn destruction of South American rainforests.

~Profits contribute to things like dance and piano lessons for our kids instead of increasing Tyson’s share price.

~Supporting local agriculture helps reverse the decline in rural economies and communities instead of increasing the rate at which they lose people and capital.

~Fair wages and labor practices in family owned businesses exist throughout the supply chain instead of slaughterhouses and processors that exploit the most vulnerable people among us.

    I really like this post a lot and am curious to see how you add to it as your farm develops. There are specific things that are tied directly to your farm and philosophy along with a nice mix of things that are applicable to a number of small businesses. The whole idea of good farming practices leading directly to good food is a message that needs to be out there more.

    Might want to think about having this whole post linked to your “About” page. I think these are the kinds of “quick hits” that can help you with your brand story and development.
