Thank you for wanting to learn more!
We are so excited you read our article and want to learn more about us and our Plympton Poultry.
Mark your calendars
We are going to raise three batches of chicken during the 2017 season. The first will be available for pick up on July 4th at Sauchuck's Farm Stand - you can't get fresher chicken for your 4th of July barbecue! The second will be ready in early August and the third will be just in time for Labor Day. We have you covered for all your summer grilling needs.
About the chickens
Our chickens are Cornish Cross which are fast growing meat birds. They are fully mature at just eight weeks old which results in delicious, tender 4-6 pound roasters. Since we raise the birds on pasture they have plenty of access to fresh air, sunshine, grass and bugs - all things chickens love. We supplement their pasture diet with all natural, locally milled grain that is free of chemicals and additives.
The chickens are processed at a USDA inspected processing facility.
I am the owner of Bogside Acres and while I'm a banker by day, I'm a Farmher by all other hours. I'm no stranger to farming having grown up on a small family dairy farm in Pennsylvania. After completing my degree in Animal Science at Cornell University I moved to Massachusetts, eventually settling in Plympton with my husband Cass who is a Massachusetts native and fulltime cranberry grower.
Bogside Acres is a small diversified livestock operation located in Plympton. We offer grass fed Simmental Beef which spend a majority of the year grazing on local pasture and enjoy local hay, supplemented with local brewers grain in winter. Additionally, we offer and seasonally raise Pastured Pork and Pastured Poultry. To learn more about our current offerings and follow along on with current happenings on the farm check out our Facebook & Instragram @BogsideAcres
Hi! I grew up on the South Shore and have always loved animals - in high school, I was a competitive horse back rider and showed all over the country on the Appaloosa circuit.
I attended Skidmore College for my undergraduate degree and then received a Masters in Accounting and an MBA from Northeaster University. Right after graduation I worked in public accounting and got my CPA license. I currently work for a local bank as the Loan Operations Manager.
My husband, Justin, and I moved to Plympton in June 2016 when we bought a condemned farm house that was in need of a complete renovation. While bringing the house back to life we decided we also wanted to bring the farm back and started Revival Farm. We already had a small flock of layer chickens and we added in five pigs. Today we raise Free Range Layer Hens, Pastured Poultry and Pastured Pork and we have a few of Erin's cows roaming our pasture. If you would like to follow along you can find us on Instagram @RevivalFarm and on Facebook @theRevivalFarm.
