About

Participants will see grass fed, grass finished cattle, pigs living in the woods. They will also see, weather permitting, honey bees in the apiary. The farm does not use commercial feed, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides, etc. They are what Dan calls "a hippie farm" which is short hand for a non-certified organic farm. Dan also feeds their livestock with an assortment of produce collected from the farmers market - a practice that keeps about 2.5 million pounds of organic waste from going to the local landfill annually. The tour ends with a visit to the on farm store where products from the farm and 40 other local family farms and businesses are available.
