NEPM: Walker Farm at Whortleberry Hill

This week on the Local Hero Spotlight, we’re joined by Joan Walker of Walker Farm at Whortleberry Hill in New Braintree, a nurse turned farmer and self proclaimed carnivore.

Hear all about how she raises over 60 head of certified humane, animal welfare approved,100% grass-fed cattle. The results? Flavorful steaks, roasts and even hot dogs that are second to none. (We got to try the hot dogs – oooooo boy….)

Note for accuracy: Walker Farm joins many other Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW and Certified Grassfed by AGW farms in New England. To find a full list of AGW-certified farms and the businesses that sell these products, check out
