Burningheart Farm is a small farm with a mission: to preserve the art of sustainable farming. We use organic methods to produce happy and healthy pasture raised lamb, heritage turkey, chicken and eggs without the use of antibiotics, growth hormones, anthelmintics (de-wormers), pesticides, herbicides, or synthetic fertilizers. Our lambs and poultry are on pasture everyday.
The small size of our farm allows us to produce limited quantity with exceptional quality. An important part of our "small and local" philosophy is retailing directly to you, our customer.
The soil is the foundation of our farm. Our permanent pastures are managed for the long term protection of the soil, increasing mineralization, and decreasing erosion. Permanent organic pasture contains a wide variety of plants and greater biological diversity than soil which is subject to tillage and toxic inputs. Much of our pasture contains legumes, such as white clover, which fix nitrogen from the atmosphere into the soil at the root level, providing free and natural fertilization with no excess nitrogen run-off to contaminate surface water. The result is a higher level of nutrition in the pasture, the animals, and you.
We keep a permanent flock of sheep and breed our lambs here on our farm. Our livestock are treated humanely and have plenty of space, eliminating stress and illness. We supplement our livestock with kelp (OMRI listed), a sea grass which has the proper balance of vitamins and minerals necessary for excellent nutrition. Kelp contains over 60 minerals and helps to maintain soil fertility. We participate in the USDA voluntary scrapie flock certification program. These sustainable methods promote optimal public health, maintain strong topsoil and produce some of the most nutritious, safe, and delicious meat and eggs available.
You can order on our website, email or call. Please order your lamb early in the year, as we often sell out by summer; you can buy a whole or half share and it is ready for your pickup in the summer and autumn. Heritage turkey orders for Thanksgiving are taken throughout the year, but should be made by March 31 to ensure we will raise one just for you. Chicken is available throughout the year; advance orders are requested for large quantities. Eggs are available in the spring, summer and fall. Honey, organic herbs, firewood, and more are available on our farm stand seasonally.
