We at Firefly Farms have dedicated ourselves to humanely growing the cleanest, safest, most flavorful and most environmentally gentle beef, rose veal, chicken, and pork we can. We never stop trying to be just a little bit better than we were. We believe you can taste the difference. We are endorsed by the ASPCA in their Shop with your Heart program. We have passed the Humane Certification inspections with flying colors for years now.
Firefly Farms is a small, family owned and family operated farm in rural North Stonington, Connecticut. We are building our future on the old Parisette Farm which had not been farmed in more than 60 years. And the lower farm which was a dairy farm years ago. All had reforested with 80 foot tall "weeds". We have undertaken pasture restoration and are making good progress.
We pasture raise all of our animals to an exacting standard. Our animals do not take antibiotics or growth hormones. The food they eat is grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms or ionizing radiation. There is no soy in any diet! We like our animals! And we like the purity they bring to your table.
We are helping to save a critically endangered, purely American, Heritage pig called a Mulefoot. Instead of a pig‘s cloven hoof, it has a hoof that looks like a horse hoof. Of the 1,000 left in the world, we have 5 separate blood lines. These animals produce phenomenal pork.
Our heritage Randall Cattle have a wonderful history. They are an old Vermont landrace breed--a triple purpose homestead animal noted for meat, dairy and draft. Their meat has won many first place accolades in taste tests, 17 Chefs at Foxwoods declared it the best flavor ever. They wanted us to achieve more marbling and we have done so on grass and grass alone. Our herd varies in size, but is around 130 animals at present--the second largest herd in the US.
Our chickens are pastured and fed Green Mountain Soy free Organic feed. Our production birds vary, but always include Cornish Cross. Sometimes we do Red Rangers and sometimes Freedom Rangers of two types. We have raised heritage birds--Dorkings, Barred Rocks, and Rhode Island Reds, This year, increased demand from the pandemic made it imperative to raise birds that took less time. Others will return in the future when this is behind us!
