About Snoep Winkel Farm

Our meat chickens are pasture-raised in pens that are moved twice daily to provide fresh grass to the birds. These pens allow the birds to move freely on the grass but offers them protection from the numerous predators who would love a good chicken dinner! They are slaughtered at 8 to 9 weeks of age while they are young and tender, at an inspected facility.

Our egg layers are free-range and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine as well as the rain and the snow! We feed and water the "girls" outside to encourage them to spend as much time as possible outdoors. Gary has built a lovely porch for the hens to "hang out" under on those hot summer days. The eggs are gathered at least twice daily to ensure freshness. Our eggs are available at the Whole Foods Markets located in Madison, Millburn, Red Bank and West Orange (New Jersey), at the farmers markets we participate in, or you are welcome to come up to the farm.

The grain the chickens do receive as part of their diet is locally grown and locally milled. We are a "monitored" flock meaning we are federally inspected every month to ensure the girls are in the best of health and we are a certified avian-flu free flock.

We raise Hereford and Hereford-cross steers. They are a calm, friendly breed that are a pleasure to work with. They produce a lean and very tasty meat. Our meat has been graded to be on average between 90 to 92 % lean. The steers are grass-fed and grass- finished.

Our sheep flock is a mix of Hampshire, Romney, Cheviot, Suffolk and Dorset genetics. Our lambs are milk fed and remain with mama sheep to get a full 5- 6 months worth of milk and all the pasture they want. This produces a leaner, mild-flavored meat.

We prefer to raise the heritage breeds of pigs such as Red Duroc, Hereford and Poland China. Though they tend to grow out a bit smaller than the commercial breeds, the meat is very flavorful.
