Formerly,Bar None Ranch, of Berlin, NY, we are now Climbing Tree Farm, of New Lebanon. We raise PASTURED POULTRY, LAMB, GRASS-FED BEEF, and WOODLAND/PASTURE-RAISED, MILK-FED PORK. We keep our animals true to their instincts- letting our pigs dig, our chickens range, our sheep graze. We feed rotationally graze on pasture and silvo-pasture (in the woods). We work with a local dairy to feed our pigs Jersey milk. We are conscientious stewards of the land, and our animals.

Sheep generally choose the coldest day of the year to have their babies. Yesterday it was -1 F in the height of the afternoon. Here you see the ladies and their birthing suite. Filled with hay, the tee pee makes a cozy place for new babies.
The farmer's year is often broken up by natural events, planting, harvesting, lambing to name a few. One of my favorite times of year is lambing. Somehow the freshness of the cold, and the warmth and newness of the lambs makes it feel like an exciting new beginning.
