West Wind Acres is farm located in West Charlton, just a bit outside Saratoga. They specialize in superior pasture-raised meat farmed via fresh clean pastures, rotational grazing, and non-GMO grains (for pigs and chickens) and 100% grass for sheep and cattle. I’ve toured the farm and found it to be an extremely well-run operation with animals freely roaming 100+ picturesque acres.
In addition to being really great people (and parents), owners Joshua and Stefanie Rockwood have developed some of the best and most effective methods of farming. They also have a completely “open door” policy and believe everyone has the right to know where their food comes from and how it is raised.
I can say from experience that if you take a tour of the farm, you will be truly impressed and feel very comfortable buying any of their meats or joining their CSA.
Why Pasture Raised?
Pasture raised meats just taste better. They are healthier for you and your family. No hormones, no antibiotics, nothing that nature has not intended for their stomachs are ever given to the animals.
“Our goal is to provide family, friends, and the region with an option for healthier food. Our products will be raised humanely, and in a manner that is close to how they would grow and flourish naturally.”
