Our Story

At High Silo Farm, we pride ourselves with managing the uniqueness of raising heritage breed livestock.  Heritage breed livestock are embedded with genetic code which wires them to be well suited for diverse geographical locations throughout the world.  We choose to raise breeds suited for the climate in the Northeast region of the US (however, they can be just as well suited in a similar climate internationally).  The cool thing about it is, this allows our livestock to remain in pasture nine months out of the year.  Heritage breed livestock are hearty throughout the winter months without catching one case of the sniffles! They’re pretty hardy!!! They also can withstand the heat of summer.  Of course, proper shelter, etc.  Production breed livestock on the other hand are selected for quick market weight growth, which also equals shorter life spans.  We learned this quite directly when we inherited a production turkey with the purchased of our farm 4 years ago.  The turkeys name was “Tom” and he became our sort of watch bird!  Fortunately Tom was really, really big, but his large appetite and inability to move around much led him to his demise.  He simply was not built to live long, which by the way is tough for keeping a breed alive for future generations to come!  For this reason and more, we look to be as sustainable as possible and allow our livestock to live out happy and productive lives on our farm with managing the team to live out collectively for our future generations.  Depending on the breed, heritage animals can live upwards of double the lifespan of a production or factory livestock animal!

Perfect balance of quality and taste.
