Sanford Farm is a family farm raising grass-fed Angus-Hereford cross beef. The beef is available in fall and early winter, and occasionally in early summer with a steer held over the winter.
Our beef animals are bred, born, and raised on a closed farm, in a low stress rotation system, going on new grass every 1 or 2 days. They only eat grass with no subtherapeutic antibiotics, growth hormones, chemical pesticides. Their winter feed is hay produced on this farm and one or two others. The only grain they see is the bait necessary to lure them into the headgates for low stress handling.
They are processed in a USDA inspected facility, and then aged for a week or ten days before butchering. The animal is divided into 4 equal quarters, containing one fourth of the different cuts, which are freezer wrapped, labeled and weighed. The current price is $7/lb. The quarters weigh between 80 and 100lbs, depending on the size of the animal.
We are also associated with another grass based farm in Greene, RI, that follows the same protocols for raising and processing their animals.
