We help more people eat good, healthy food. We believe the way to do this is to provide meat from animals raised on pasture. Pasturing animals enables them to express their natural behaviors, and leads to healthier, better tasting meat. None of our animals are fed GMOs, antibiotics or hormones.
North Mountain Pastures is a small family farm dedicated to producing great food using ecologically sound production practices. We farm on 84 acres in Perry County, Pennsylvania, in a way that heals the land, nourishes people, and treats animals with respect. This means animals are naturally raised outdoors, on grass or in carefully managed woodlots, and fed only non-GMO grain. Brooks & Anna, joined by their children, have been farming together since 2006, and selling pasture-raised meats directly to consumers through The Meat CSA since 2009.
We dream of a food system in which farmers receive fair wages and consumers receive highest quality taste and nutrition.
We aim for transparency in our farming and meat production practices. Farming should not be hidden from public view. We host farm visiting days twice a year for you to meet your farmers, observe animals firsthand, and ask questions about land management, animal husbandry, and all things meat.
What happens when heritage breeds of pigs are raised with care in their natural environment, butchered with respect and precision, and processed with only unrefined sea salt and certified organic herbs and spices using artisanal processes and recipes???
We would be happy to answer any farming or food questions you have for us!
