Spring is here and that means Easter is not far off (April 21). For Double Brook pastured meats and all kinds of delicious fare, please see our EASTER MENU from the Brick Farm Market (online order form on website) or make a reservation at the Brick Farm Tavern for our special Fire Roasted celebration.

Sheep Are Finally On The Spring Grass

The day finally arrived! We prepared to let the flock loose on the spring grass for the first time this year. And out they went… The action was very much like a crowded escalator when one person stops at the bottom as the first sheep (literally) out of the gate ...
