Quill’s End Farm, owned by Heather and Phil Retberg, is a 100+ acre farm in Penobscot, Maine raising grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured pork, raw milk and eggs.
The Retberg’s use rotational grazing on their 15 open acres and are renovating 30 more acres from woods to pasture to increase grazing for their pigs, beef cattle, lambs, laying hens, goats and dairy animals. Their beef cows are grass-fed and get baleage in winter. Their laying hens are rotationally grazed following the sheep and cattle and get a conventional grain feed including corn and soy. Pigs are raised in the woods and on pasture and get surplus milk and whey from the Retbergs’ homestead cheese making.
