Our Products

At Snug Valley Farm, we are committed to providing you with grass-fed and pasture-raised meats that were raised with respect, sustainability, and the environment kept in mind. The epitome of the Vermont working landscape, our setting provides a natural, humane growing environment for all of our livestock and it shows in the end product.

100% Grass-Fed Beef

Our 100% grass-fed beef is grass-finished, tender, juicy, and healthy. We do not use hormones, stimulants, or additives. Our beef is offered as frozen packaged retail cuts all processed under inspection.

Pasture-Raised Pork

From bacon to ribs, our pasture-raised pork products will always have you coming back for more. In the summer, our pigs are raised out on pastures and in winter, they snuggle into deep bedded pack barns with our hay.

Grass-Fed Lamb

Every year from approximately February-April we offer a very limited supply of 100% grass-fed lamb. Get on our mailing list to get the alert when this offering becomes available since it goes quickly.

Ben’s Pumpkins

Started when Ben was just six years old, every September-October the farmhouse lawn becomes Ben’s Pumpkins. Be sure to stop by each fall to make selecting your pumpkins a special tradition not to be missed.

Winter

There isn’t much to see during the winter months on the farm but we are busy keeping unfrozen water available to all, bringing everyone bales of hay that we mowed during the summer months, feeding pigs a natural, non-GMO grain, and planning our next grazing season. Come spring, our flock of sheep will give birth to a new group of lambs and before we know it, everyone will be back out on the green pastures.
