My name is Colby Jones and I bought Farrar Out Farm in February, 2010 at the age of 20. I had worked on the farm for over 5 years before having the opportunity to buy it.
At Farrar Out Farm, we take our responsibility of growing the healthiest food possible very seriously. You get the best product possible from Farrar Out Farm. Since buying the farm, I have added beef and lamb to the list of products that we raise and sell.
Our products include: Black Angus beef, Katahdin and Dorper cross lambs, Berkshire cross pigs, Cornish Cross chickens, eggs from free range chickens, and produce. All our animals are raised without growth hormones or antibiotics (Never – Ever) and are raised on pasture.

Colby M. Jones
25 cows and 18 steers
75 pigs per year
86 ewes, 4 rams, and they raise around 130 lambs per year
1,000 chickens (broilers)
200 egg-laying chickens
All animals are raised on pasture. Cattle and sheep are 100% grass fed and finished. Hogs, chickens, and turkeys forage and are fed supplemental grain that is nearly always non-gmo, although that is limited by availability.
Cattle are rotated through 6 pastures – they become accustomed to moving when they see him and hear the chain on the gate rattle. The pastures that Colby uses for his cattle are allowed to recover before cattle are put back on the same ground.
Sheep are moved weekly, and have access to shelter when necessary.
Pigs are moved weekly.
Egg-laying chickens are housed at night but are totally free range during the day. Broilers are moved around the sheep pastures in mobile pens regularly.
