Welcome to Auburn Meadow Farm

Auburn Meadow Farm is a small, diversified farm, dedicated to the craft of raising extraordinary food.

We like good food.  

You may be tired of hearing about safe, fair, sustainable and regenerative food and farming systems, but seriously? Being virtuous has rewards.

One taste of a pastured pork chop from an old-fashioned hog, an egg from a truly free-ranging hen, or an old-world Devon grass-fed burger, and you’ll see why we are so passionate.

Sure, we starting by raging against commodity food systems, unhealthy processed foods,  joyless lives lived by commodity livestock, and the loss of local farms and foods.

But being mad all the time is not our style.  Turns out, it’s really all about the thrill of deeply knowing the taste of our Pennsylvania home.

Funny thing is, what is best for the animals and the environment happens to also be what tastes best, is most joyful, and nutritious.

Good food is good care, and if price was measured by nutrient content instead of by portion size, one could easily see what a bargain well-raised food truly is.

Whether our efforts to create a stable, local food economy and put delicious, kindly raised meats on your table are a lasting success is ultimately up to you.

Small farms like Auburn Meadow Farm are not quaint relics. Instead, they are valuable sources of innovation and experimentation desperately needed in this time of climate uncertainty. Nothing produces more quantity or quality of food per acre than a well run diversified farm.

Of course, in the end, the future of farming is in your hands. It is not what you say you value, but what you actually purchase that shapes tomorrow’s food choices.

And by looking at the way you cook and shop in a new way, you will realize that you can afford better food, and you do have time. And the reward is joyful, and connects you to your home in a deep way. 

It may not always feel true in these contentious times, but we do have choices and power over our future. Conscious consumers are winning small victories against harmful corporate practices every day.

If our kind of food sounds good to you too, be sure to vote with your fork, three times a day. We are counting on you.

This farm is home to..

spunky, old fashioned livestock…

…selected for hardiness and extraordinary flavor, not fast production or large, uniform size.

We raise American Milking Devon Cattle, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Large Black and Duroc hogs, Dewlap Toulouse geese, and a variety of classic farmyard hens for the most flavorful, nutrient dense beef, pork and eggs we can produce. We are small, and intend to stay small, so when it’s gone, it’s gone.

Extraordinary Ingredients
make great meals fast & simple.

We tend to make dinner more complicated than it needs to be. When it comes to feeding yourself and your family, one simple guiding rule makes it all so easy. Start with extraordinary ingredients, in season, and allow them to shine.

Fresh, locally raised ingredients don’t need help or added commercial seasoning products, and they are an everyday celebration of Pennsylvania’s four amazing seasons. Plus, you don’t need to be a scientist to understand the ingredients.

Yes, indie-farmed food does not come with BOGOS or gimmicks, that is true. But should you choose to accept the challenge and learn a few new pantry skills, you will surprisingly find that, extraordinary, fresh, local ingredients in season can save money in unexpected ways, offsetting the cost. And once those new skills become habit, wholesome, unprocessed food does not take more time, just time spent differently.
