After four years operating on borrowed and leased land, we have purchased a 325 acre farm in Holden, Massachusetts!
As young farmers striving to grow the business, we have been challenged by the lack of one location. Moving livestock from one location to another, traveling to as many as four different locations to feed and check on our animals. It’s been a labor of love, but a time consuming one. While attending 10 farmers’ markets, we’ve found the perfect farm to call home.
The former dairy farm will provide plenty of pasture for our Black Angus Cattle and Katadhin/Dorper sheep. We are very grateful to our customers, many of which have become friends, for supporting us throughout the years and especially during this time of exponential growth. Purchasing the farm have been long term goals that could not have been achieved without our supportive customers.
Things have come full circle for the Lilac Hedge Farm brand. We named our farm in honor of the former Lilac Hedge Dairy belonging to Donald MacKay (Ryan’s grandfather) which was located in Holden for four generations. Now Lilac Hedge Farm is back in Holden with a new farm home, a place to put down roots and grow for generations.
