For Ann and Ron Fay at Rising Meadow Farm, spring is the most awaited time of the year with the daily arrival of new born lambs. It is also the time of the year that is most demanding physically.
Ann and Ron have set the bar high as their credo is “only the best will do” which applies to the quality of food sources, environment, and mode of harvest.
They believe that this level of care generates the best products of wool and meat, the foremost which is generated on the farm’s February Shearing Day by master shearer Kevin Ford. Meat to market occurs during the other months of the year.
Hard work has paid off for this couple as the end of each day brings comfort, satisfaction, and joy in a unique pastoral setting which has been preserved in perpetuity for future generations.
The Piedmont Land Conservancy is a partner in the Fay’s vision as benefactor of a conservation easement placed in 2011 .
