Who We Are

Robie Farm has been in operation since 1870. We are located in Piermont, NH on the Connecticut River. The seven generations who worked on this farm have been and still are dedicated to keeping healthy and productive livestock.

In 2008, current owner, Lee Robie with his sons, made the critical decision to switch from selling their milk to a large cooperative, to selling bottled raw milk directly to the consumer in our own store located on our farm. Over the next few years, we diversified our operation by using our raw milk to create our own Farmstead cheese line as well as introducing a wide variety of meats: beef, pork & poultry. You can find a full line of our products in both of our stores as listed on the Farm Stores page.

To ensure that our meat will always be of the highest quality, we developed a standard of how our animals are to be raised here on our farm as well as the beef that are raised for us by the cooperative of local farmers.

HGAL is the acronym of our standard of which you can learn more about by clicking on the boxes below.

facts about our


Our meat products adhere to the Robie’s humanely raised, growth hormone free, all-natural and locally grown (HGAL) production standards.  These standards represent the ethos that we constantly strive to meet.  Our Angus and Hereford crosses provide outstanding components of flavor and tenderness. From spring to fall, our herd grazes day and night on lush grass. During the winter months, they are fed hay and supplemented with protein-rich grain.

We raise our own supply of pork from piglets to finished hogs. We maintain the HGAL standard with all the pork we sell.  Our pigs are raised in a hoop house that allows a natural environment with deep bedding, and plenty of fresh air and sunshine.  Pigs have a strong instinct to root with their noses and in the hoop house they can do just that.  They receive a daily ration of premium grain and a combination of hay and plant clippings.  We have a variety of breeds:  Yorkshire, Duroc and Berkshire which equates to pork meat that is uniquely lean, juicy, and has a great depth of flavor.

facts about our


Our Pasture Poultry operation produces humanely raised, all-natural pasture grass and grain chickens and turkeys right here on our farm. The specialized technique is to raise poultry in movable structures from May through October on pasture as opposed to indoor confinement. The result is meat that is high quality, tender, flavorful and rich in vitamin A and Omega-3 fatty acids. Robie Farm birds are processed here on our farm in a unique way to ensure that flavor and quality are not lost.  We never use a chlorine bath, and no dyes or preservatives are used in the processing of our poultry.

farmstead cheese

Our homestead cheese is made in small batches with Robie Farm raw milk. All of our cheese is made from GMO-free milk from our Normande cows which produce the best components for making cheese. The raw milk is poured into vats and processed in our cheese room. Cheese wheels are created and soaked in a sea-salt brine which gives the cheese a perfect amount of salt and forms the rind which protects the cheese during aging. Once removed from the brine the wheels are placed on wooden racks, made from ash, in our cheese cave for a period of 12 to 24 months. Aging is where the “magic” happens as the enzymes cultures slowly transforms the cheese and creates the complex flavors, we all know and appreciate in cheese.

raw milk & cream

Raw milk is milk that comes directly from a cow’s udder and is not pasteurized or homogenized and has superior nutrition and significant health benefits over pasteurized milk.  Raw milk contains greater bioavailable nutrients than pasteurized milk, as well as a wide array of beneficial enzymes and probiotics which are known to have benefits on the immune system and gastrointestinal tract. Along with our Normande cows we keep several Jersey cows in our milking herd as they produce more pounds of milk per pound of body weight than any other breed, and their milk is high in butterfat. The proper ratio of Normande to Jersey cows in our herd enables us to produce the highest quality GMO-free milk and cream.
