About Us

We live on a 23 acre traditional family farm that was part of Guyton's Delight dating back to the mid-1800s. We purchased the farm to provide an environment for our children to learn the lessons of responsibility and the value of an honest day's labor. We began growing food for our own consumption for two reasons. We wanted the animals we consumed to be humanely raised without the use of growth hormones and antibiotics. We also like the taste of fresh produce. For anyone who has eaten a tomato fresh from the garden and compared it to one grown in a greenhouse, you can imagine the difference between fresh meat and that found in the grocery store. Friends and neighbors who have eaten the meat liked it so well that we now grow more and offer it for general sale, albeit on a limited basis. Since we started growing our own food, we have become more aware of the manifold benefits of raising animals on pasture and farming sustainably. Many of you have read "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Micheal Pollan and now know how your food is produced. If you have not read the book, we highly recommend it. The book explains the many connections between what we eat and human health, animal health, and environmental health. In short, what we put in our mouths has far-reaching impact. Carbon emissions, Chesapeake Bay polution, air polution, asthma, alergies, diabetes and obesity are linked to agricultural policy and the "Farm Bill". If you wish to learn more about the connections, let me refer you to the Center for a Livable Future at Johns Hopkins. If you are curious about the benefits of eating pasture raised animals, I recommend "Pasture Perfect" by Jo Robinson. She also has a website (eatwild) that is loaded with good information. Some interesting films worth watching are King Corn and Food Inc, The Future of Food, FRESH. We just finished watching "Food Matters" and found it very thought provoking. If even a fraction of what is portrayed in the film is true, we are in a world of hurt.
