Finch Farm is perched on a ridge halfway between Cayuga and Seneca Lakes. We, the people of Finch Farm, do our very best to nurture and nourish the land beneath our feet and the interwoven communities – plant, animal, and human - that sustain us.
We raise Katahdin sheep – a breed developed in Maine and selected for outstanding parasite resistance, excellent mothering instincts, and the ability to thrive on forage. Our flock lives outside year-round, and it is 100% grass-fed.
Our lambs are born in the spring, just as the world turns green again, and they are raised entirely on their mothers’ milk and the diverse grasses and other plants of our certified organic pastures.
We slaughter the lambs ourselves, right here on the farm – sparing them the stress of being loaded onto a truck and handled by strangers. We then take the carcasses to an expert custom butcher to be cut and wrapped. Katahdin sheep are known for producing lean, meaty carcasses, and their meat is mild and delicious.
