We are doing some spring cleaning and sprucing up the farm in anticipation of warmer weather and the bounty of farm fresh goodness we will have to sell this season! Come out to the farm to enjoy some grass-fed beef, pastured pork and eggs, as well as some spring greens! Take a stroll around the farm and see all of the animals enjoying their lives out on grass. We will resume our normal hours (Thursday, Friday 2-6pm, Saturday, Sunday 10am-4pm) as of the first weekend May. We hope to see you at the farm soon!
