PICTURES - ON THE FARM
Ridge Hill Farm is owned by Donald & Ruth Morse out of Boxborough, Massachusetts. The cows are taken care of daily by Don, Phyllis, his daughter, and Rick Sr., Phyllis' husband.
Our family has been on this land since 1635, when Don's great-great grandfather bought the land for 8 bushels of corn. It has been a working farm since 1682 and has adapted over the years to survive. Our family farm has changed path from being an apple farm, to being a dairy farm, to now, a beef farm.
In 2012, our farm was featured on Agriculture's Lasting Heritage. Click here to read our story!
Our grass-fed cows live free range in a large, rolling pasture, and are fed a diet of pomace (the crushed apple by-product from a cider mill in Ayer, Mass.), hay, grass and a small amount of natural grain to keep them at a healthy weight. Over the years, Grandpa Don has put a lot of work into his breeding program and the results speak for themselves. Our happy, healthy herd of black angus is a beautiful breed representative. It is a little known fact that genetics play a huge role in the taste, texture and quality of beef. Don's years of smart and selective breeding make our beef a competitor to be reckoned with!
