Grab your lunch and get ready to learn! This month, we chat with Emily & Lydia Chamelin of Aerie Farm East. Their goal is for the farm to provide delicious meats raised in a humane, regenerative, and holistic manner. Aerie Farm East is family owned and managed by Emily and her high-school-age daughter, Lydia, with help and support from husband/father, Kevin Hickman. They are dedicated to raising their animals on grass to allow them to express natural behaviors and have a varied diet of numerous types of grasses and forbs. Emily and Lydia assure rich flavor in the meats they sell as well as optimum health of all their animals by intensively managing where and what they graze. Emily, Lydia, and Kevin raise classic old style Cheviot sheep, Miniature Zebu Cattle, Guinea Hog heritage pigs, and a few Saanen dairy goats. In addition to managing their farm, Emily and Kevin run a full-time sheep shearing business, together working the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and around the world.
