Chris Russell - Widdershins


Farm synopsis:

Widdershins owned by Chris & Wendy Russell is a diverse farm located in the highlands of Central Maine. We are a direct to consumer business providing Grass-fed beef, pastured pork, and lamb generally as freezer sides or whole animals but occasionally as frozen cuts for retail sale in our farmstore.

Our beef cattle herd consists of registered Pure Devon cattle and commercial Devon crosses and we occasionally have Devon breeding stock available for purchase. All beef cattle are strictly grass-fed with rotational multi-species grazing thru the summer and are fed our own hay in outside winter paddocks.

The farm raises Katahdin sheep, providing lambs, breeding stock & freezer lambs. Large Black Hogs are available as piglets or raised freezer hogs. Our hogs and sheep are never confined and always have pasture access summer and winter.

Widdershins is also a Maine State licensed raw milk distributor, raw cow and goat milk is available on site in our farmstore in ½ gallon glass jars. We have a small herd of Jersey & Jersey/Devon milk cows and are planning on expanding our dairy business to include yogurt and soft cheeses.
