Creating Family Traditions is our specialty.
Autumn is the season that is arguably the most beautiful time of year. It doesn’t get any prettier then right here in New England. We think a visit to our farm will be exactly what you’re looking for to highlight your family's fall memory.
When your family comes to Devon Point its about the experience, creating a memory and beginning a family tradtion. It's more then just walking up to the cash register and making a purchase. Here, it's about learning how and where your food is grown, transparency throughout. It's a place where history, beauty and nature all come together to create something unique and special.
It's all about the apples. Our apples have never been sprayed with anything, they are all hand picked. We have many varieties including old, hard to find traditional cider apples. We don't use dropped apples picked up off the ground. Our orchard is spread across 93 acres, many of the trees we are harvesting from are over 100 years old. Our supply is limited to what we can harvest fresh and sell to you, so time your visit accordingly.
Our cider is a composite blend of apples, the cider we make is living "Raw" cider. It has not been boiled, pasteurized or treated with UV to kill it. This living cider can be heated at home if you want to minimize any possible risk of contamination. Raw cider can be used to make hard cider, apple wine, apple butter, apple molasses and your own apple cider vinegar.
Devon Point cider is available for sale only at our Cider Mill, you will not find it anywhere else. It's only made in the fall for a limited time in the and in limited quantities, you can purchase the cider and keep it for year-round use by simply freezing it right in the jug. It is one of the greatest natural sweeteners going, a true alternative to cane sugar. Cider has so many uses, so be sure to get a healthy supply that will last you through the year.
About our cider:
Lets start with the apples since they are the one and only ingredient.
Our unsprayed, 'beyond organic' apples are for sale by the bag. They are hand-picked from the tree (no drops) and come in 1/4 peck, 1/2 peck and 1 peck sized bags.
We also use this amazing cider in our Apple Cider Donuts, made fresh! We serve and sell our cider both hot and cold by the cup, as well as in pint, half-gallon and gallon jugs.

Grassfed Beef Now Available!
You can buy by the individual cut (1 steak or a pound of ground beef), by the sampler box (a 35 lb. box with a mix of different cuts), or by a half beef, all right at our Farm in Woodstock, CT! We are located in the Northeast Corner of Connecticut, about 45 minutes from Hartford or Providence.
Is a half beef too big for your freezer? Would you rather buy a quarter cow? Interested in 'Cowpooling'?
We can now SHIP boxes of our beef. Within 1 day UPS ground shipping rates start as low as $23 shipping for a 15 pound box of frozen beef!
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!
• no hormones, no antibiotics, & no medicated feed, free roaming (not caged). They were butchered under USDA supervision and are now frozen (whole) in clear plastic bags in our commercial freezer here at the farm. Easy to cut into pieces or enjoy roasting them whole! On sale now for $6 per pound and our birds weight between 4 and 7 lbs.
Our heritage bred, all-natural pigs are grown on vegetable scraps, pumpkins, winter squash and supplemented with non-processed grain (cracked whole corn and soybeans). No hormones, no antibiotics, no restaurant scraps, and no leftover bakery products! 'All natural' to us means all natural feed! Butchered under USDA supervision. We take orders early in the year and custom-grow our pigs for our customers! Click here for more information or an order form!

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 introducing… APPLE CIDER, Cider donuts and our antique apple cider pressing demonstrations! Coming FALL 2015!
We now take credit cards! VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, PAYPAL and more!!
