    Ben Slayton of Farmers' Gate Market for Local, Pasture-Based Meats

    in Food

    ENVISION THIS: Meat that fills your soul as much as your belly


    Our guest, Ben Slayton lived abroad in Tuscany on an organic farm specializing in pastured pork. There he developed a passion for well-raised meat and craft butchery. After a couple of years raising his own animals here in Maine, Ben switched his focus to building a network of several small farms to support Farmers’ Gate in an effort to bring more locally raised meat to the Maine marketplace.


    Farmers’ Gate Market bridges the gap between local, pasture-based livestock farms and the growing number of families who are looking for good locally-raised meat. They work with a network of Maine farms to provide their customers with grass fed beef, pastured pork and lamb, and free range poultry. They work only with farmers who produce pasture-based livestock, and they process all the meat in-house. As a result, they can ensure safe handling of all their products and retain complete knowledge about everything they sell – from farm to table.


    Like their customers, Farmers’ Gate butchers are hungry for good homegrown food – meat raised locally on pasture by farm families who are thinking about the future. They also look for creative ways to build awareness about local, sustainably raised and craft-butchered meat. Therefore, they share the stories of their farm partners, preserve the skills of whole carcass butchery, and incorporate old world traditions with new technology.

    SpokenHeard with Andy Bowen and Susan Dobbe Chase

    in Poetry

    Andy Bowen is a farmer and rancher in Northwest Oklahoma. He and his father in law, Kim, raise grass fed beef and lamb, free range laying hens and broiler chickens and pastured pork. He spends most of his time building fence, feeding and watering animals, fixing windmills and watching the sky. With what time is left over, he often scribbles thoughts into journals, and very rarely, those thoughts become poems. Some of them are good. Most of them are not, and he likes these best.

    Episode-875- Rick Worden of Rise and Shine Rabbitry


    Rick Worden has promoting rabbits for homestead use and personally raising rabbits for 30 + years and feels every homestead should be raising rabbits due to their tremendous impact toward greater self sufficiency.   Rick’s company is Rise and Shine Rabbitry a small rabbitry in Mechanic Falls, Maine.


    Their rabbits get premium care since they only raise a small number.  All rabbits are kept in individual raised cages inside a hoop-house, in the barn and some hutches outside. Rabbits are shaded through the summer heat with shade cloth and kept warm and dry all winter while enjoying the company of a flock of silkies for bug control.


    Twice a day the rabbits have pasture plants and grasses and other homegrown produce scythed for them and served up fresh (in season), so even though the rabbits are not “pastured” they are still reaping the benefits of a nutritious and natural diet.


    Through the winter months the rabbits are fed hay and their diet is also supplemented year-round with a pelleted feed and root crops also an herbal hay mix the Wordens dry that and store for the winter rabbit “blahs”. Rick is also growing sprouts and experimenting with other homegrown foods to grow in their short season.
