Steady Lane Farm offers grass-fed beef, raised without grain. Although our practices are mostly organic, we are not certified yet. We measure success by healthy soils, happy animals, and friendly neighbors.
The mowings and pastures on our farm in the wet, hilly Berkshire soils are over 150 years old. We strive for full-system (holistic) practices that build the soil food web, using our herd’s winter manure and sawdust bedding (from untreated wood) for nutrient and biotic replacement in the hayfields. The herd drinks from the clear spring-fed streams of the Berkshires, and we limit their access to protect the waters flowing downstream. Grass-based farming not only builds land productivity, but also habitat for wild animals.
Our beef is dry-aged, which means that the steaks are tender enough to grill. We also recommend the stew chunks, bone-in stew cuts, shortribs and brisket for making traditional and healthy broth. Of course, ground beef is also available and wonderfully flavorful.
We sell all year in Elmers Store in Ashfield, Debra’s Natural Gourmet in Concord, and Idywilde Farms in Acton. We also have a booth at the Ashfield Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings in the summer, where there is music and grass-fed yogurt!
