South Stream Farm

Southshire Meats is growing a thriving regenerative meat business by offering regional farmers assistance with transitioning to regenerative practices so their products can send more of every food dollar their way.

Studio Hill is a regenerative farm in southern Vermont owned by Cally and Jesse McDougall. Our primary goal is to strengthen the land’s natural water, carbon, and nutrient cycles so that we may restore the abundant ecosystem of our 5th-generation family farm.

To achieve this goal, we raise livestock on pasture using holistic land management practices, we use no-till gardens for our annual vegetable and flower production, we are building a 4-acre perennial food forest, and we keep bees.

As part of our partnership with Southshire, we are also managing an additional 300+ acres on 2 additional farms in Southwest Vermont: White Rock Farm and Shadowbrook Farm.

Haystack Farmstead is owned and operated by Breya and Brian Leach. They have two sons Orrin and Rylan. The farm’s name is taken from nearby Haystack Mountain and nestled in the beauty of the Mettowee Valley—home to Vermont’s richest soil and scenic hillside pastures.

We practice pasture-based husbandry—a simple approach to raising cattle: put the animals in a situation where they can thrive and be healthy—no supplements and no antibiotic feeds, just grass and clean air. Every day, the animals are put onto fresh, leafy grass stands, rich in nutritional value, where they spend their days enjoying the best Nature has to offer.

We love our animals but understand our respective places on the food chain. You will love cooking with our meat: it’s delicious, always of the highest quality, and always fresh from our pastures.
