New stock of fresh pasture raised beef at NOMAD!

Hurry to the NOMAD Farms Log Cabin Store and stock up on fresh, no-nonsense pasture raised beef today!  We just got it back from the butcher, and this is absolutely the most beautiful, delicious grass fed beef you will ever taste.  And the best part?  It was raised with integrity right here on the chemical-free meadows of NOMAD Farms.  Did you see the cover story in Consumer Reports this month on the dangers of grocery store beef?  It's not worth the risk, folks, plain and simple.

Healthy living can't be separated from healthy eating, guys.  The good news is that eating good-for-you NOMAD meat products is a mouth watering pleasure!


Also in stock: we just got a beautiful lamb back from the butcher and expect to have a whole pork available by cut in the farm store by the end of next week, too.  Thanksgiving turkeys and coming soon and free range eggs are in plenty.  And, of course, the Log Cabin Store is well stocked with our much-heralded pasture raised chicken--have you tried one of these things?!?  They are outrageously good, and full of nutrition to boot.  With our current special (buy 8 get one FREE!) people are stocking up for the winter months.  These chickens are raised on grass, and when it turns brown next month we have to stop raising chickens until spring 2016.  Don't get caught having to go back to grocery store chicken (or better than that, going without chicken) until spring.  Put a few in your freezer this week!

Hi! I’m Ruthann, the new Education and PR Specialist at NOMAD, and am looking forward to invaluable learning and using my gifts and experience to further the mission of NOMAD Farms.  I have loved all the rain this week, as it does its work in soaking the pastures and garden, and then inviting me to curl up with hot tea in the evening.

Internship Opportunity at NOMAD Farms, LLC


An internship position earning a monthly stipend.  NOMAD Farms ( is a clean food meat production family farm.  Our humanely raised animals are the centerpiece of the farm and enjoy the cleanliness of fresh, rotated pasture to live and feed on.   We’re dedicated not only to healthy foods and sustainable stewardship, but to sharing this land and model with the community.  For our patrons, we are offering a point of connection with the land and a destination for good food and good relationships.   This is much more than just a farm.


The available position is a skill-development internship aimed at equipping the intern with practical farm experience that will enhance any resume, especially on career trajectories in the sphere of agriculture and/or sustainability.   Responsibilities include assistance in daily farm operations, like feeding and caring for animals, mending fences, managing soil health, working in our large scale garden and processing/packaging produce and meat for sale.  The intern will represent the farm at local farmer’s markets and interact with visitors on our farm tours.  By learning detailed operations of the farm and assisting in the development and implementation of new strategies, this intern will gain skills and insight for farm operations and management.


This internship will last approximately seven (7) months (May 1 to November 30, 2015).  Compensation will include a $700/month stipend for 35-40 hour work weeks for the first 4 months, and would be expected to drop back to 12 hour work weeks from September to November, as we would prefer for this intern to be a college student.  Those final three months earn a stipend of $400/mo.  Housing is not included, but lunches on the farm will be provided on work days. 


Qualifications: Above all, honesty, integrity, a can-do attitude and a willingness to learn.  No farming experience necessary, but the candidate must be physically fit and willing to work in all weather conditions with a smile.  Good people skills are strongly desired as most everything we do includes interaction with the community.  Valid driver’s license and legal work status in the US required, as well as a current tetanus shot.
