Without our animals, we couldn't do what we do. So we'd like you to meet some of the amazing livestock that call Windy Meadow Farms home and have helped build our herds.
Our animals give us a deep appreciation for each new day as we witness the cycle of life repeated each year on our farm.
Our breeding stock have been selected for performance, as they are raised as naturally as possible and must perform with minimal inputs with only very little grain supplementation during crucial life stages.
Meet Antietam Whiskey, USD34554-D sired by Fearrington After Hours x Antietam Asia. This guy is a gentle giant and has just begun to sire some beautiflul calves here and we are very excited to have him!
BHF Cherokee, leased from Luton Meat Goat Company has sired our last 2 years' kid crops. He is a hunk of a buck and has added lbs. to the plate! We are happy to partner with Luton Meat Goat company as Co-op breeders to bring some of the best savanna genetics to our pastures.
The matriarch of our herd, this lovely female graced our pastures with the first heifer sired by our Antietam Whiskey and "Ella", as we call her has great frame like her mother and is shaping up to be quite a beauty.
Sweet Ebony was a successful show heifer at her former farm. She is minus the belt, but is a sturdy built cow that knows how to raise calves!
This heifer was just recently added to our breeding herd and we are super excited to see her first calf later this summer.
Our savanna does must prove themselves worthy to stay in our herd or to enter someone else's. We hope to have our first purebred savannas in just a couple more years. Meanwhile, we will continue to offer quality percentage breeding stock (both commercial and registered).
Our does must posses great maternals, and raise their kids in the field. Each doe is evaluated by what she can produce and how easily she does it.
From Silver Cuckoo Marans to Exchequer Leghorns, our hens are a source of free range fresh eggs and a little feathered friendship!
Our sweet Charlotte was adopted from some very dear friends who moved out of state and could not take her with them. She now has a forever home with us and intimidates the mice around our barn!
