Please visit our NEW BLOG! A small family-run heritage breed farm in Schoharie county, NY. Our animals are raised in an open & natural, stress-free environment. Our belief is that animals raised outdoors, on high quality pasture, and that are treated with respect, produce the most nutritionally-dense and best tasting meats. All of our meats are hormone and antibiotic free and our animals are never exposed to herbicides or pesticides, producing clean, fresh, lean meats that you can be confident about serving to your family.
Sloansville, NY, near Schoharie, is the setting of Arcadian Pastures (AP), a heritage farm owned by Laurent and Debra Danthine. Just off of a very winding road in the hills, a beautiful scene of country side opens up and seems to go on forever. And then you spot them, the striking black and white ‘Oreo Cookie’ cows in the pasture and their neighbors the spotted pigs. Not your everyday breeds in New York State for sure. This is due in part to Laurent’s own heritage. READ MORE
At our farm you will find many different varieties of heritage breeds. Heritage breed animals were bred over time to develop traits that made them particularly well-adapted to local environmental conditions. MORE
Our farm shop is stocked full with our fresh grass-fed meats and is open M-F 8am-4pm; closed Wednesday. Please come and visit us.
Our Philosophy is a simple one. We believe that by giving the animals we raise the best possible life, stress-free and without the use of any hormones, sub-therapeutic levels of antibiotics, or exposing them to pesticides, the nutritional value of the meat & eggs that they produce is of the highest possible quality.
