Our 73 acre Certified Organic, Certified Demeter farm is devoted to raising animals on pasture to produce the highest quality meat (chicken, pork and beef) and eggs. We sell our meat primarily through a monthly meat box and at the farmers market on Saturdays. The farm is a diverse mix of pasture, silvopasture, forest, permaculture orchard, household garden, ponds and wetlands. We are not hobby farmers. We eat, live, and sleep farming.. this is all we do.
