About Us / Ben Wever Farm History: Ben Wever Farm has been continually family farmed for 200 plus years. That's sustainable agriculture. The latest generation to take the reins are Shaun & Linda, 7 years ago from Ben Wever. Linda has decided to euphemistically refer to herself as the" Protein Queen of Essex County". And Big Daddy Shaun spends a lot of time rotating his prime cattle from one lush pasture to another. We are not a CSA. You are are welcome to purchase what you need, when you need it. Although we do sell to select stores, delis and bakeries, most of our farm supporters prefer to visit the farm, checkout the latest farm excitement and select their own meat & vegetables. We encourage everyone to be aware of the local food system and compare ours to traditional chain food sellers. Every year we try something new for instance - trout.Our animals spend their entire life on the farm. We raise Angus and Scottish Highland cattle, Kathadin, Ile de France and Shetland sheep, heritage breed hogs and a variety of poultry on Adirondack pasture. We make use of our ranch horses when we want a better view of the mountains or lake with the stock dogs, Rueben, Cork, Big Jack,and sweet Pippa. As it says in the bible all flesh is grass, so you can imagine how much pasture and hay it takes to keep everyone satisfied! Our vegetables and fruits have become "accessory" items to our premier meats. Nothing finer than a red ripe juicy tomato on a Adirondack grassfed burger. We love our farm and our community and we wish to share its' bounty with you. We host farm tours for groups, 4-H, FFA, Girl Scouts, etc. We have been honored to host Adirondack Harvest's farm to table meal the last few years. This event takes place in September during Harvest celebration week. We will always consider the right person/s for an internship. See you all soon.
