We are a diversified certified organic market vegetables and fruit farm selling mainly wholesale to natural grocery stores and restaurants with some limited CSA, point of sale, and farmer market sales. Being a new farm established in just 2014, we are still experimenting with crops and sales outlets to establish our niche. In addition, we raise Muskovy ducks for meat and eggs, Boer meat goats, Katahdin sheep, grass fed beef and a milk cow. Chickens, both for eggs and meat are on our to do list. Raising livestock adds to the diversity of the farm, and helps support our biodynamic principles. Our farm is 67 acres in total, in which we cultivate between 2 to 4 acres per year for market vegetables. In addition, we have an orchard, raspberries, and harvest wild blackberries. About 20 acres of the farm is in pasture, 5 acres is set aside awaiting organic certification, another 20 is leased, and the remainder is a forested watershed area and wetlands with a season stream and pond. We take pride in our riparian land and are protecting it with assistance through a Conservation Reserve Program with the USDA.
