Farm History & Future

Zach and Bethany have raised vegetables & berries the past several years. However this year, their farm will be growing a lot! It will be going from a ½ acre garden to 12 acres of pasture, garden, cover crops, and forest. In the pasture areas we will be raising broiler chickens this year and would like to expand our livestock operation to include dairy and beef cattle within two to three years. Forest-raised hogs will also be present on the site this year. We will be adding more produce variety with this expansion. In the coming years, our goal is to plant fruit & nut trees.  

We also have several soil conservation strategies we are implementing including expanded cover cropping, intensive rotational grazing, and low & high tunnel vegetable production. A wildlife buffer zone will separate our farm from neighboring conventional farms. We're also transitioning to certified organic, which is a 3 year process to complete the certification.

This location is also a future building site for our home. We currently live half a mile away, but still on the family farm.
