Are you looking to find out about the wonderful 8 Hands Farm in Cutchogue on the North Fork of Long Island? 8 Hands Farm is a 28 acre, sustainable family farm with grass-fed and organically raised meats, vegetables, eggs, and prepared foods. The farm’s produce is grown beyond organic standards. There are absolutely no herbicides or pesticides used.
RELATED: Organic Farms on Long Island
It is important that the animals live in an environment that is natural to their species. Sheep, as a ruminant, should eat grass and be able to graze freely on pasture. Pigs should be able to root around to find other sources of protein and energy. Chickens should be free to roam on pasture and scratch around to find bugs and other food.
The farm employs organic practices in its vegetable and herb gardens. At the on-site farm store, you can purchase their pasture-raised and grass-fed meats, pastured eggs, produce, and fiber products from their flock of Icelandic sheep. And coming soon, their sheep milk cheeses.
