|Blenheim currently has about 150 chickens, the breeds range from Bantams to Rhode Island Reds.||Our primary beef cattle are the wonderful Herford breed. These lovely ladies are not for meat, they are assigned to growing the herd.||Finnsheep and Icelandic sheep roam freely. Morten with a Finnish ram.||Our heritage pigs are a mix of Tamworths, Birkshires, and Gloucester Old Spot.|
We promote animal welfare and proper meat production processes using a pasture-based system that allows our animals to roam freely in the natural environment that our land provides. This will allow our animals to eat nutritious grasses and other plants that are easily digestable. This pasture-based method will not only improve the welfare of our farm animals but will also reduce environemental damage to the land.
pasture-raised, heritage breed farm animals will also yield better
quality meat and eggs that are more flavorful and nutritious
than foods produced on factory farms.
At Blenheim Hill, we firmly believe that we should eat less but better quality meat that is raised following sustainable livestock farming practices.
