At Goodale Farms, we value traditional farming and believe that fresh, local and seasonal food is what’s best for our customers. The Goodale Family has been farming the east end of Long Island since the mid 1800’s. It is our belief that fresh local food in season and properly preserved is the formula that has leas our ancestors to live long healthy lives. The way we were at 60 years ago is what we need to get back to.
About 5 years ago, I started laying the foundation to make this a reality. we started with 2 cows, 6 goats, 2 pigs and 30 chickens. We now have over 25 dairy cows, 125 goats, 10 beef cows, 20 pigs, and 250 chickens. we are now one of Long Islands only sources for truly local dairy products and pastured meats.
We are not certified organic, nor are we seeking to be. We raise our animals and grow our food the way we have been taught over the past century. We do not use antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones (BGH or BST). We try to farm as close to nature as we can. However, should the occasion arise where we need to treat an animal or crop to prevent death or lose, we will utilize every option available to us. That animal or product will never be offered to the public until we have cleared any such treatment from its system.
