Frequently asked questions
Is your farm organic?
While we are not Certified Organic, we grow all of our vegetables and fruits without using harmful chemicals or pesticides. Our sheep are pasture-raised and our chickens are free-range. We take our stewardship of this land very seriously, and do our best to keep our pasture, forest, and gardens healthy and natural.
What types of preserved products do you make?
We have a variety of edible products ranging from jams and jellies, pickles, and chutneys, to seasoning salts and ferments, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables if you are local. Some of our best sellers are our chipotle apple butter, hot pepper jelly, aronia pear chutney, and pickled okra. Varieties vary from year to year depending on our harvests.

Our farm is not generally open to the public, but if you are super interested, contact us and we can try to accommodate you!
What are Icelandic sheep?
Icelandic sheep are one of the oldest, purest breeds of sheep in the world. They were brought to Iceland by the Vikings. They are a multi-purpose sheep, and have a double-coated fleece, which makes their fiber warm and soft. They come in a variety of colors and patterns, both horned and polled (without horns), and have big personalities. Our flock originated from Vermont and is used only for fiber.
