At Widdershins all our livestock are allowed free access to our natural Maine pastures & home grown hay.
We sell grass fed beef as custom cut sides or whole steers.
Steers are raised by their Devon mother cows or if purchased as calves,
they are started on milk from our Jersey milk cows until weaning,
then are raised on pasture and hay until ready for processing.
The steers and Devon herd are strictly grass fed, which offers our clients a healthier, better grade of meat.

Grass-Fed meat go to:

For custom cut sides/wholes our steers are delivered to the butcher by us,
buyers pay their own butcher bill, and pay us per pound
of the hanging weight.  (pre-cutting, wrap & freezing)

Devon Cattle
Our Devon herd started with a bred cow and a heifer calf purchased from Cliff Wood of Fairfield Center, ME in 2005.  Mr. Wood had raised beef Devons
for over 50 years and we are very lucky to have obtained such a nice pair of cows to start our herd.  Currently our Devon brood herd
consists of 9 Pure Devon cows, and 10 percentage Devon commercial cows with an additional 15 Devon & Devon cross steers.
