From the Swiss Alps to the fields of Pennsylvania, Meadowset Farm is a small 30 acre family farm in the heart of southeastern Chester County. The farm is run by Barbara and Thomas, two large animal veterinarians and their daughters. Max, the Bernese Mountain Dog, 8 cats, chickens, honeybees and peafowl complete the tenants on this 250+ year old farm. We run a grass-based licensed sheep dairy with East Friesland and Lacaune milksheep, following old-world cheese making practices. The 25 plus colonies of honeybees produce honey, pollen, propolis and beeswax. We consider it a privilege to carry on the tradition of farming at Meadowset Farm. By practicing sustainability we strive not only to be good farmers, but also to become stewards of the land for those who will farm here after us. "OUR LAND IS NOT A GIFT FROM OUR PARENTS, BUT A LOAN FROM OUR CHILDREN."
From our grass-fed ewes come "The Last Straw, The Camel's Back & The First Bite" - artisanal cheeses crafted in small batches. Pasture-raised lamb with managed intensive grazing preserves the soil, protects ground water, and recycles nutrients back into the earth. The result? You and your family will thoroughly enjoy our totally natural, great tasting lamb. Dry aging creates a rich, mature flavor and improves tenderness. Cheese, lamb, eggs, fiber, pelts, honey & pollen available all year.

I found Meadowset Farm when I started looking into local honey - and I discovered new friends in the process. The Schaers happily share their wealth of knowledge about local farming and sustainability, and all of their products (lamb, eggs, herbs, honey) are of exceptional quality.... [more]

autumn is in the air
Autumn notes....September is my favorite month! Growing season still underway but the nights are cool.... not bad for a Swiss mountain boy. We dried the ewes off last week, a month earlier than usual, but this year was tough with help and our precious "fairy helpers" have returned to school.... [more]
