This farm is participating in Vermont Open Farm Week 2017!
Enjoy the peace of a Vermont hill farm and the majesty of Highland Cattle when you visit award-winning Shat Acres Farm in Plainfield, Vermont. Shat Acres Highland Cattle was named the 2016 SBA Vermont Family-Owned Business of the Year. Highlands are a Heritage breed that boasts strong horns and lustrous, red coats. Farmers Ray and Janet have raised Highlands for over 50 years, and have the oldest registered herd of Highland Cattle in the United States. They are a 'Conception to Consumption' farm, where all the beef they sell is born and raised on the farm.
Open Farm Week guests are invited to enjoy the farm,and depending on good weather, bring a picnic and blanket, a book or crossword puzzle, and of course your camera! Take in the sweeping mountain and valley views while learning how Janet and Ray respectfully provide customers with healthy, locally and humanely raised meat. Beef will be available to sample and purchase. Rain or shine. No tickets required.
