Longfield is a small family farm located near Albany, New York. We produce grass-fed lamb, wool, free-range chicken, eggs and artisan breads. We are committed to sustainable pasture management and humane animal husbandry. Our animals are hormone-free and only receive antibiotics when sick. Our chickens clean the barn, so we use less parasite medication. Our farm and home are solar powered and our pastures absorb more greenhouse gases than all of our animals and farm operations produce.

Our Breads-- We bake sourdoughs and yeast breads. Many of our breads are baked in a wood-fired, beehive oven. The ingredients in our breads are from local sources whenever possible: The flour is milled on our farm or in New York. Eggs usually come from our own hens. We sweeten with local honey or maple syrup (never with refined sugar).   Most of the seeds in our breads are organic; some are grown right on the farm.  Want to know more? Call our bakery at (518) 362-6576.

Our Wool -- We sell white and natural colored Romney, Shetland and rare Leicester Longwool fleeces and rovings  -- perfect for handspinners. Our Romney Fleece took the Prize for Best White Fleece at the NY State Sheep & Wool Festival in 2010. We ship anywhere. Call the wool room at (518) 522-9462, or e-mail us for pricing.

Our Lamb -- We specialize in custom cut, whole lamb. Our lamb is grassfed from start to finish. Because of our sustainable pasture management practices and the use of a rare, metabolically efficient breed, our lambs finish at about 85% of the size of grain-fed lambs, but with the healthy attributes associated with grass-fed meats. Your lamb will arrive in October or November, cut to your specifications, cryovac packed and frozen.  We are currently taking orders for November lamb. Please call the sheep barn, if you would like to order a lamb or if you have questions -- (518) 362-6576. 

Free Range Chicken-- Our layers live in a chicken tractor that is moved around our pastures, to help process what the sheep leave behind and maintain flock and pasture health. Our broiler chickens also go outside every day. They get strong and healthy. They return our care and stewardship by producing superb meat. Call us for more information at (518) 362-6576.

Where to Find Us --   We will be at the Delmar Farmers' Market every Saturday from 9-1, beginning in June. We also sell directly from our farm. Drop us an e-mail or give us a call to find out more -- (518) 861-5280.

Education is part of our mission -- Please call or e-mail us to arrange a personal or group farm tour or a sheep herding demo, featuring our skilled and friendly border collies -- Great family fun!
