CHANDER HILL FARM
We purchased this beautiful 60 acre farm in Geauga County, Ohio in 2013 with the goal of being
able to live a more sustainable life & to be able to share our love of great food raised as humanely
as possible without the added use of antibiotics, hormones or genetically modified feed. It's something
we personally feel strongly about & it seems there are many others who feel the same.
It is a business, but we are just as passionate about being stewards of this land, so we strive to keep
a happy balance. The quality of our product is extremely important to us & so our philosophy is
to work with the seasons of the year. For example, we won't have fresh chicken available November through April because the weather generally is too cold & wet, the pastures don't grow much & the chickens don't thrive/are not happy outside in the move-able, bottomless tractors. Our calves, piglets & lambs are generally born in Spring/ Summer so that they can get a good start in life
basking in warmth from the sun & eating fresh pasture.
You will see browsing through our website that many of the animal breeds we have chosen are on
The Livestock Conservancy's Preservation List, an organization which seeks to help promote & save
heritage breeds. They are superior tasting & have lots of other great traits but they are not
'viable' options from a 'large' commercial perspective - for example they take longer to get to table
size, they do better on pasture than when fed grain in a feedlot. However for us & for what our goals
are they are worth the extra wait - better taste & mounting evidence that pasture raised livestock without the addition of antibiotics & genetically modified feeds as being a much healthier alternative.
We'd like you to visit our farm so you can get to know us & what we are about. We will answer
all your questions about what we do & why we do it. We really do grow great food & it's not at
the expense of the animal's well being; in fact you will see that our animals live happy lives &
are allowed to exhibit all the natural traits & behaviors of their species.
