Item Description

Black Watch Farms is a dynamic, active cattle farm in the highlands of Vermont. A herd of 100 head of cattle, serve as resources for the over 20 businesses who sell the famous Grass-Fed Black Watch Farm Beef. The farm stand, open daily all year long, features all cuts of beef, fresh and frozen. Fresh farm eggs are available from our chickens. Ducks, geese, guinea hens, goats and a sheep, also entertain visitors to the farm.

Owners Frank and Liz Manafort were looking for a weekend get-away, and these 275-acres were the perfect setting for developing their dream. Sculpting the land to include barns, garages for equipment, housing and a farm stand to sell their grass-fed beef, took over 10 years. The result is a modern, efficient property to breed cattle, revolve pastures and raise the animals in a humane and nutritious way.

Each Spring, new calves are nurtured by attentive mothers. The herd includes Simmentals, Black Angus, and cross breeds that bring out the best to create a most delicious result. Cows are treated humanely, grass fed, grain finished, and never receive hormone shots or any other artificial enhancements. It is natural food at its best.
