Our farm is the culmination of the Leigh Goehring’s vision of producing the best tasting, most nutritious, Omega-3 fat rich, 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef and continuing the rich, regenerative farming tradition of Herkimer and Otsego Counties in Upstate New York.
Leigh’s knowledge of global agriculture and food supply, combined with his passion for gardening, inspired his investment in a more natural and sustainable process of raising cattle. He listened to the local Otsego County community, across generations, that had the expertise in farming the land of the Richfield Springs region. To ensure that the cattle were consuming the sweetest grass that could be grown, he brought in leading industry experts to grow and raise the sweet grass that today fuels the herd.
In 2009, the first parcel of land in Richfield Springs, NY was purchased, with its unique soil, known as honeoye (pronounced “honey-oy”), and the abundant natural spring water supply. These conditions allow for diverse grasses with healthy root structures to flourish across our rolling hills and pastures. In 2017, the farm added its own local USDA-certified abattoir, fulfilling the original vision to ensure that every tender, mouth-watering and nutritious cut of beef comes from cows that are bred, born, raised and finished on our farm and prepared and shipped by our butchers.
Our mission is to produce the highest quality and best-tasting beef that is fed and finished exclusively on the sweetest-tasting grass to create a superior flavor profile. We strive for the greatest level of sustainability on our farm, by using regenerative farming methods. This regeneration of the land ensures premium health, tranquility and respect for our animals, employees, community and customers.
