We all want meat that comes from animals that were raised humanely, lived in their natural habitats, fed only what nature intended… grass, never given antibiotics or hormones, and processed responsibly, but these kinds of meats can be expensive — especially for those who are feeding entire families. Fortunately, there are ways to make feeding your family natural & properly raised meats completely affordable… buy in bulk and buy a freezer!
When we talk about buying meat in bulk, we’re taking about purchasing a half animal or a sampler box. The meat still looks exactly like the meat you usually get — packaged separately according to the cut. The only difference is the amount of it that you’ll be getting at once, which will be a lot more than you’re used to (hence the need for a freezer — and you’ll be surprised how quickly it pays for itself)! See my article on the benefits of buying a freezer!
Not sure you can eat that much beef? Try “Cowpooling”… it’s when you ask some friends, family or neighbors if they are interested in eating great, healthy meat and saving money at the same time... by going in together on a half or a quarter!

ABOUT DEVON POINT FARM
Devon Point Farm is a 93-acre, family-run farm located in Woodstock, Connecticut, and is owned by Erick & Patty Taylor. Specializing in rare, heritage and endangered American Milking Devon Cattle, Devon Point Farm raises cattle for grassfed beef, and has a naturally-grown vegetable & flower CSA farm share program. In the Fall, the farm features a pumpkin patch, hayrides an antique Apple Cider Press, raw apple cider and apple cider donuts.
Gourmet Grassfed Beef - Devon Point Farm's grass fed beef is 100% natural, 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, no hormones, no antibiotics, and humanely raised and processed. Cattle are pastured only (not confined in a freestall barn), and eat only what nature intended... grass, hay, clean water, fresh air and sunshine. Our grass fed beef is processed in a USDA certified facility, plastic wrapped, labeled with the cut, and frozen.
Vegetable & Flower CSA Shares - At Devon Point Farm, all of our vegetables and flowers are naturally field grown using only OMRI® listed products and only when absolutely necessary. OMRI® is the "Organic Materials Review Institute" that manages the list of products that comply with USDA organic standards. We do not use synthetic fertilizers, herbicides or pesticides. We fertilize with organically-rich compost made from manure from our grassfed cows. Our CSA Shares provide members with 18 weeks of fresh, local, seasonal vegetables and gorgeous flowers. Shares are available for weekly on-farm pickup in Woodstock, CT on Tuesdays or Fridays, or Thursday deliveries to Stonington, CT and New London, CT.
All-Natural Chicken & Pork - Devon Point Farm raises all-natural chicken and pork, with no chemicals, no hormones, no antibiotics.
American Milking Devon Cattle - Devon Point Farm has one of America's largest and finest herds of the rare, heritage, endangered breeds of cattle originally known as 'North Devon' cattle, now known in America as 'American Milking Devon' cattle. Our heifers are sought after for breedstock and our bull calves as herd sires. It was a great honor in 2008, that our calves were selected to become the first herd of American Milking Devons to be brought across the border to reside in Canada. Our herd is a closed, disease-free herd, having undergone rigorous veterinary testing for the international border crossing as well as for sales to various discerning customers throughout the years. Our breedstock available for sale is limited, please call today for availability or to get on our waiting list.
Pumpkin Patch - Open mid-September until the end of October... we have hundreds, if not thousands of pumpkins and specialty gourds to choose from. All in a beautiful rural farm setting. Bring your camera and your friends for a fantastic Fall weekend outing!
and now in Fall… RAW APPLE CIDER, PESTICIDE-FREE APPLES, Cider donuts and our antique apple cider pressing demonstrations!
We now take credit cards! VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, PAYPAL and more!!
