Specialty Grains & Local Livestock Grains Custom Ground for Small and Mid-Sized Farms

One of our more recent product additions at Clover Hill Farm is the production of grain crops for livestock feed and other uses, including malting and brewing. We have found a home providing quality bulk livestock feeds, whole grain feed, and non-GMO feed options that economically suit the needs of local small to mid-sized farms and backyard “homesteaders” raising their own meat animals for quality control and assurance--much as we are doing here for our own meat customers. Our custom livestock grain customers tell us we are an economical alternative to farm store bagged feeds, and that our mid-level bulk grains help bridge the gaping gap between bagged feeds and large grain mill minimums, essentially the only other options for buying bulk grain for livestock.
