The Animals
 
 
 
Once, exclusively a dairy farm, today Elmartin Farm houses many different animals ranging from livestock for consumption to pleasure animals  for enjoyment. 
 
Current Elmartin Farm Activities

Beef animals are kept to be pastured during the summer.  Steers are raised for folks who desire to know where their meat is coming from.  Currently, there is capacity to house 40 head in the barn; and more outside. 
1 to 2 litters of pigs are born each year and raise for meat.
A flock of chickens is kept to supply fresh eggs.  We have white, brown and green eggs which we use and sell. 
Goats
What would a farm be without a "Billy?"

Much of the land is protected from development by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Agricultural Protection Restriction Program.  Therefore, the land will always be available for farming operations.  The Commonwealth's Forestry Stewardship Plan is also in effect.
