GMO-Free Corn and Grass-Fed Beef Sales Surge at Three Feathers Farm in South Salem, NY
Cows at Three Feathers Farm
Three Feathers Farm, in South Salem, is known throughout the region for its non-GMO corn. Every summer, foodies flock to the farm’s self-service garden house (open May through October) to shop for fresh-picked veggies—and corn is always the top seller.
But Joe and Jeanine Haberny, who own and operate the farm, have noticed a new phenomenon this year. While their summer corn is as popular as ever, sales of their pasture-raised Black Angus beef, which is available all year round, is also skyrocketing. According to Jeanine, they’ve sold more of grass-fed beef over the past two months than in the whole previous year.
“We rotate our cows between five fields, so they always have green grass,” she says. “We also bail our own hay, so we know exactly what our cows are eating. Our cows are happy and healthy, and it shows. Our customers continue to come back time and time again to purchase our beef, chicken and veggies, because they know exactly where it comes from. We’re not certified organic, but we practice organic standards.”
The Habernys have also added fresh eggs and fresh roaster chickens to their offerings during the spring and summer months. The garden house is currently open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.
