Who We Are
Z Farms is a certified organic farm in the village of Dover Plains,
New York. We conduct certified organic poultry and meat operations and grow fresh berries.
The goal is to deliver the freshest possible beef, lamb, goats meat, poultry, eggs and berries with the highest nutritional values to local communities.
In order to do it we farm responsibly and carefully with the full respect to Earth natural resources and environmental factors.
We have our own bees that help pollinate berries and orchard trees.
Agriculture that is productive yet replenishing and balancing to the health of the soil and local ecology as a whole is our highest
Crops rotations, cover crops, strip tilling, contour tilling, summer fallow, composting, integrative pest management,
biological pest control are just few examples of our responsible farming practices.
Animal welfare is the other important aspect. The poultry is humanely raised on the pastures utilizing rotational grazing method.
The birds are freely roaming and scratching on the grass and go to fresh paddocks of land every day.
The livestock animals - cows, sheep and goats - are raised utilizing rotational grazing method on the lush pastures of clover, alphalpha and grasses.
In winter we feed them hay collected from our certified organic fields as well as nutritional supplements, herbs and minerals.
