Beginning with a herd of just five, The Farrell’s have built up their herd to nearly 100 head of cattle. The Farrell’s began with White-Faced Hereford’s they cross-bred with a French breed known as the Blonde D’Aquitaine. They eventually cross-bred those with the Black Angus bloodlines that are commonly seen today in the fields.
Since 1999, The Farrell Family has transformed Sunset Farm into a local icon in Narragansett. Sunset Farm is the last of its kind in the south-end of Narragansett, being the last working farm in the area. The Farrell Family works pasturing a herd of 100 head of Black Angus beef cattle, born and raised right on the farm. Sunset Farm prides itself on the fact that their beef cattle never leave the state of Rhode Island. Sunset Farm also grows a wide variety of produce in their fields located behind the Historic Kinney Bungalow where weddings and events are frequently held.
The Farrell Family has single-handedly transformed Sunset Farm to an icon in Rhode Island, and the go-to spot for fresh produce, beef, and pies in the area.
Sunset Farm’s famous pies have become synonymous with chowder and clam cakes in the area.
The Farrell Family had to literally start from the ground up when they started their vegetable garden back in 1999. Soil quality is essential to growing quality produce with flavor; soil quality provides the backbone for the root systems as the plants grow. After four years of replenishing the soil with the needed nutrients, The Farrell’s were able to get their crops where they wanted them.
