About Shady Pine Farm
Just Call our Meats Naturally Good Eating!
The Shady Pine Farm mission is to produce the highest quality hormone-free, grass-fed beef and pork for the health of your family and our own.
We are Julie and Roland Gaumond, and to us family farming has meant sustainable agriculture for over 30 years. That means caring about the long-term health of our meats, our livestock and our land. Healthy food benefits all of us and gives our planet its greatest chance to thrive. This isn’t tree-hugging, just common sense.The humane raising of free-range herds can be hard work, but we do it gladly on our 23 acres. Our third generation is coming onto this land
in New Braintree, Mass.
In 2009 we began sharing our tender, delicious meats through farmer’s markets, direct farmstand sales and with members of Community Supported Agriculture in Central and Western Massachusetts. The response has been tremendous!
We'd love to meet you and share the taste and nutritional benefits of meats raised at Shady Pine Farm.
You have a very personal investment in our healthy meats, we want you to learn more about ourproduct selection and the benefits of grass-fed animals and hormone-free feeds..
