  • Terra Firma Farm (CSA) - milk, beef, pork, poultry, lamb
    330 Al Harvey Road, Stonington, CT, 06378. Phone: 860-535-8171. Email us at: info@terrafirmafarm.org. The creamery at Terra Firma Farm is a farmstead creamery. We graze our cows on pasture grasses and forages throughout the spring, summer, and fall, and then supplement them with hay harvested from our farm through the winter months. Research has shown that grass-fed dairy products are rich in Vitamins A & E, and potent antioxidants like CLA and omega 3 fatty acids. Our dairy products are vat-pasteurized and non-homogenized, leaving a beautiful layer of luscious cream on top. Make sure you shake your bottles before serving or collect your cream to use as you please. Terra Firma Farm Facebook page.
    BEEF & VEAL
    Our grass-fed cows are raised on pasture and rotated regularly to ensure we're taking care of them and the land. They're never fed with GMO's or growth hormones, given antibiotics, or grazed on artificial pesticides. They graze and roam with big smiles! In turn, this creates the highest quality, nutrition-packed beef for you to enjoy.
    POULTRY
    We raise our chickens according to the strictest production standards. They're treated humanely (dare we say pampered?) with open space and plenty of bugs and grass for foraging. You can taste the difference in quality!
    PORK
    Our pigs are raised happy and healthy – unconfined, with plenty of room to roam and access to sun and fresh air. Our pork comes from happy pigs in a natural habitat where they can forage. This directly impacts the quality (both flavor and nutrition) of the pork they produce.
    LAMB
    Our lamb is 100% natural and grass-fed. We care for each animal individually from the day it is born so you can enjoy the highest quality and healthiest product possible. Our rotational and regenerative grazing system allows our sheep to have access to high-quality feed every day which is what makes our lamb so delicious.
