About Us / Meadow Mist Farm History: Located in a rural corner of Lexington, Massachusetts, Meadow Mist is an integrated small farm that raises and sells grass fed beef, heritage breed lamb, pastured chicken and turkey ,organic fed, cage-free fresh eggs, and seasonal garden vegetables and berries. We use non-GMO, organic, antibiotic-free animal feeds, and avoid the use of any type of insecticide, herbicide or fungicide on our gardens and pastures. We rely on crop rotation, on-site composting, cover cropping and rotational grazing to build soil health.Local Farm Joins National ChallengeMeadow Mist Farm in Lexington is the first Massachusetts farm to join the Soil Carbon Challenge, an international competition to measure how quickly land managers can turn atmospheric carbon into soil organic matter.This effort can contribute to reversing climate change, according to the Soil Carbon Coalition, a non-profit agency. Peter Donovan, an Oregon farmer, is spearheading this competition by traveling the country in a bus and enlisting farmers and other land managers to join the challenge by collecting data on the quality of their soil and submitting it to this international study. According to Donovan, our greatest hope in breaking the cycle of global warming and groundwater evaporation is to get more carbon into the soil. John Moriarty of Meadow Mist Farm said, "When this test is repeated in another five or ten years, it will be a good indicator of the health of the soil, and will help us learn what kinds of practices could have contributed to soils getting better or worse over time."You can find out more at this website and by watching the following video: Soil Carbon Challenge - Vermont Kickoff Event.
