Goatfeathers Point Farm is a historical and sustainable farm in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The farmstead, established in 1875 by Nathaniel Point, is a typical example of a Pennsylvania/New York-style farm with the bank barn and farmhouse on opposite sides of Akron Peninsula Road. Please drive slowly thru the middle of this working farm.
The historical farm produced potatoes, grains and milk. The current-day farmstead has Tennessee Fainting Goats for breed stock, and cashmere fiber; heritage turkeys for Thanksgiving; and harvest reserves for beef and pork. Eggs are for sale on the side porch along with other seasonal items.
All livestock are naturally raised on rotational grazed pasture. Rotational grazing maintains healthy livestock, soil, and reverses the desertification of the planet. Save the Planet - Eat Pastured Meat! Please see Allan Savory's lecture at http://youtu.be/vpTHi7O66pI for more information on desertification. Several of the breeds raised at Goatfeathers Point Farm are heritage breeds recognized by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, ALBC livestockconservancy.org. The heritage breeds are promoted to prevent their disappearance. Heritage breeds are well suited for pasture, and although they take longer to grow, the flavor is fabulous!
Goatfeathers Point Farm naturally raised meats are for sale direct from the farm. Reserve a heritage turkey for Thanksgiving; a half or whole pig; or, a beef side or bundle. Contact us by phone 330-815-0408 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.
