Pawlet, Vermont — Haystack Farmstead, managed by Breya and Brian Leach and home to their two sons, is a diversified regenerative farm that has been raising grass-fed beef with planned grazing since 2015. Comprised of 150 acres of woodlands and 150 acres of pasture and croplands, the farm is rich with opportunity and biodiversity. A typical ride through the wild apple silvopastures will reveal wild turkeys, deer and countless songbirds thriving alongside the cattle. Caring for land, livestock and people in this setting can hardly be called “work”. Brian and Breya are committed to securing the viability of this lifestyle to help others thrive within it.
Starting in 2021, Haystack began raising poultry for Southshire meats and is on track to earn Savory’s Ecological Outcome Verification (EOV) next season. With Southshire’s help, Haystack aims to increase stocking densities on the farm as fertility improvements allow, leveraging Southshire’s branding and distribution to connect with regional markets.
