Our Mission


At Smith Meadows, we take great pride in our mission to create a healthy farm environment, thereby producing healthy and contented animals.

Our cattle, pigs, goats sheep and chickens are regularly rotated to a fresh paddock of grass. Grass-fed animals produce naturally leaner meats with the added benefits of beta-carotene, Omega-3 fatty acids and CLA. The anti-oxidant Vitamin E, which is derived from fresh pasture, is a bonus for our customers.

All of our animals are handled humanely from the day they are born. They are never fed animal by-products, given growth hormones or antibiotics.

In addition, the pastures have not been chemically fertilized or treated with pesticides and herbicides.

The result is a beautiful, healthy farm environment where all the animals are able to flourish, naturally.

We are a family friendly environment where you are welcome to roam the fields and see the animals up close. Please confirm when calling so that a staff person or a family-member will be available to assist you at the farm.

The Choice is Natural!

For those living near Berryville, Virginia, we encourage you to visit the farm to purchase your meat and see for yourself how the animals are raised. Our store is based on an honesty policy. Located next door to the Bed and Breakfast, please go in and assist yourself with meat, pasta and eggs and we trust that you will pay for your items. If you think you will need assistance, please call ahead to see if a family member would be available.

  • Please stop by one of several farmers’ markets in the metropolitan Washington, DC area in which we participate.
  • Please call toll-free 877-955-4389 for directions to the farm. We accept Cash, Checks, Visa and MasterCard.

    Hi Cynthia,

    Thank you for your interest and questions. Our feed for the chickens is harvested and grown locally without any additives. It is made of corn, wheat and soy. It is raised with minimal input in the way of fertilizer, pesticides and herbicides; however it is not organic. Thanks for supporting our family farm!
