About

Freeman Farm is a multi-generation farm up in the highlands of Heath, Massachusetts. For over 25 years we have been providing delicious organic beef to families throughout New England and New York.

We raise beef, pork, chickens and soon lamb. All of our animals live confinement free with ample pastures. We do not give them antibiotics or growth hormones. They are raised following humane practices and with kindness. You can really taste the difference!

We also enjoy producing Maple Syrup! We make ALL grades and we bottle in a variety of sizes. Seasonally we grow organic vegetables and fruits too.
