Birdseye and Tanner Brooks Farm
Birdseye & Tanner Brooks Farm produces grass-fed, grass-finished, USDA inspected pure bred Galloway beef and Icelandic lamb. The two breeds have a well-earned, long-standing, reputation as the very best you can buy for taste and flavor, for thriving on grass alone, and for yielding meat high in Omega-3s.
We also sell hides and fleeces, yarn, roving, and felt — even, as available, real horn buttons. For yarn, etc., on your way to us, visit Black Sheep Yarns at 12 Old Barn Road in Kent, CT. We also sell wool products from the farm.
In raising our animals, no prophylactic antibiotics, no hormones, are ever used. Fed local hay and haylage in winter, our cattle and sheep are on pasture (all pasture fertilizers and inputs are organic) all year around, and slaughtered seasonally in the fall, when the grass season ends. Both our flock and herd are small. Our animals get careful attention. None of them have ever seen a feedlot. Grain (also organic) is used sparingly and only as a ‘come-along’, not for feed. This diet helps preserve the food value of the meat, and is natural to the animals.
Our Motto: “The Grass Does It!”
