DONAHUE'S LIVESTOCK FARM

DONAHUE'S LIVESTOCK FARM

Founded in 2016, Donahue's Livestock Farm raises beef, pork, and lamb to sell to restaurants, schools, and more across three counties of upstate New York, the Adirondacks, and the "North Country." Owners Brandon and Katie Donahue have been farming since 2007 and raising their livestock naturally without any growth hormones or antibiotics. Recognizing the lack of processing facilities in the region, Donahue's Livestock Farm is fundraising to open a new, federally-inspected red meat processing facility to expedite animal harvesting and processing for themselves and nearby farmers. Their mission is to provide meat options people feel good about feeding to their families. In December, Foodshed Capital, in partnership with Adirondack North Country Association (ANCA), supported Donahue's Livestock Farm with a 0% interest loan for equipment and renovations of a retail butcher shop that they will operate as Donahue's Chop Shop (DCS). DCS will be a specialty butcher shop and meat market committed to personal relationships, sincere customer service, and selling quality farm-fresh meats. In addition to accepting SNAP and EBT at their farmer's markets, DCS will be able to serve SNAP recipients as well.
