Wheel-View Farm in Shelburne is a family owned scenic hilltop farm in western Massachusetts raising USDA certified natural grass-fed beef and breeding stock from our primarily Scottish Highland and Galloway herd.
The cattle graze contentedly on our summer pastures and are fed grass-legume hay from our fields during the winter. These heritage breed cattle do an excellent job of maintaining open space on land that is not suitable for grain or vegetable crops. We have chosen this type of farming because it is more environmentally friendly, more humane for the animals, and also healthier for the consumer.
Unlike commercial feedlot cattle that are raised in confinement and fed a diet of grain, synthetic vitamins, growth hormones, and antibiotics, our grass-fed animals live very different lives. They live on pasture from birth to market. Because they live a more natural, less stressful life the animals are very healthy and calm. We determine the growth rate of our animals not by artificial hormones and grain but instead by genetics and quality of the forage, resulting in a nutritious healthier product.
