Hidden Rock Farms
(Stanley,NY)Hidden Rock Farms is owned and operated by Todd and Jeanne Totman. We produce a variety of fresh garden vegetables as well as pastured poultry, grass fed lamb, red veal and a pig or two. We bought our small farm in May 2004 and started out raising 25 broilers that fall as a project to see if we could grow our own food. When we tasted the results, we were hooked. We had never tasted such tender and delicious chicken! The Spring of 2005 saw us getting a garden ready and starting to reclaim the land from an overgrowth of sumac and goldenrod. We did this without the use of pesticides, herbicides, or any other chemical inputs. Our first harvest came in during the summer and we learned along the way. We also started a small livestock venture with some pigs and goats to help clear land. In 2006 we added sheep and raised a calf to round out the variety in our freezer. All our sheep, goats, and red veal is grass fed. We also keep our pigs on pasture to keep them lean. In 2007, we found we had a surplus and started giving our excess produce to family and friends. When 2008 rolled around, we decided to take the plunge and sell our products at local farmers' markets. We had a pretty successful season and decided to expand it for the 2009 season. Hidden Rock Farms strives to produce the finest lamb, red veal, pastured poultry, and free-range eggs. Our farm is fertilized by our livestock. We use integrated pest management practices by rotationally grazing our livestock.
