Our website is really long but here is a quick synopsis of what we do and who we are.

BOTL Farm is a pasture-based, sustainability-focused livestock farm in northeast Connecticut (also known as the “Quiet Corner” of Connecticut) raising pigs, lambs, goats, and chickens.

All our animals are Animal Welfare Approved, and our sheep and goats are Certified Grassfed by A Greener World.

Situated on 41 acres of transitional silvopasture, we designed and developed our regenerative farm so that our animals can express their natural behaviors. We use intensively managed rotational grazing methods, where the animals live on pasture all year long and are never confined; they breed according to their natural cycles and birth unassisted on pasture, plus they have the room to explore and interact with their surroundings. Rotationally grazed animals improve the quality and fertility of the land, not to mention their meat tastes exceptional!

We grow heritage breed animals that thrive in our New England climate of hot summers/cold winters. These older breeds also have flavor, nutrition, and fat quality that have been lost in industrial farming.

Pork: Our pigs (pork) are Mangalitsa/Berkshire/Large Black crosses. They are fed soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, certified-organic feed. Frozen and vacuum sealed cuts of pork and bulk boxes are available year-round.

Lamb and Goat: Our Icelandic sheep and Kiko goats are only fed grass. Typically harvested in the fall, frozen and vacuum sealed cuts of lamb and goat are available until they run out.

Chicken and Eggs: Our chicken flock consists of several breeds of brown-egg and green-egg laying hens. They are fed soy-free, corn-free, non-GMO, certified-organic feed. Multicolored eggs are available year-round and stew birds are harvested in the winter.

We sell directly to customers at our farm and assorted farmers markets year-round; see the rest of the website for details.
