Why Thatcher Farms do what they do
and LOVE it!

 – By Dana Thatcher

At Thatcher Farms we invite you to the farm to meet your farmers and to see and experience the farm first hand. Connecting with your local producer instils a wonderful level of confidence in how your meats are grown and raised. Our first generation, small, family farm raises livestock in the traditional way and we are a part of each step in growing delicious, nutritious protein meats. Our delicious, home-grown meats are raised with care and a passion for agriculture and the land. What makes our meats stand out against any other is that we play a role in each step of the process that is required to bring quality meats to your table. Something many other producers cannot say they do. We grow our own feeds from hay and haylage to barley and corn silage, to peas and oats, right to the wheat straw for bedding. We ensure our animals have access to fresh water always, as well as clean, dry bedding. Our barns are well ventilated and allow fresh country air to flow through. An integral part of our process also involves trucking our livestock in a stress free environment to local abbattoires. We work closely and respect our abbattoires as they treat our animals humanely and with integrity. The whole carcasses are then returned to our farm where our in-house Butchers hand-cut and wrap each individual piece of meat. We utilize the whole animal, and ensure that nothing goes to waste. We have created a process whereby our customers feel confident in our processes and we are honored to have a place at their kitchen table. We love what we do and that shows in the quality of our products. Each piece or cut that is purchased is always tender and delicious, and you can always taste the difference. We are proud of what we do, and are lucky enough to call this our “job.” It is a true gift to be able to work alongside your husband and children everyday. Our children are learning the value of hard work and respecting the land all while caring for livestock. Our customers are also why we do what we do. Their deep appreciation and gratitude make the tough job of farming a little easier.
