How we farm matters. What we eat matters. How we treat our land and the people who live on it with us matters. James Rebanks says it well:

We are thrilled to announce that our farm is one of the recipients of a 2020 Brighter Futures microgrant from American Farmland Trust and Tillamook! We will be using the grant to purchase a livestock trailer to help make our transportation more efficient and welfare-focused and help us continue to grow our pastured livestock business. We're so grateful to both these wonderful grantors for supporting our family farm along with a host of other amazing recipients!

Tomorrow is World Soil Day! We're thankful for our local farmers -- and farmers all over the world -- for using healthy soil practices that will allow our communities to continue to have bountiful harvests for generations to come!

Herding dogs learning teamwork. They’ve still got a ways to go, but it’s fun to watch them learn. Meanwhile, the sheep are on the move and can hardly wait for breeding season to begin.

We have three more 2020 lambs available for pre-order by the half or whole! Our lambs are grass-fed and raised on pasture by their moms. They are bred here, born here, and raised using rotational grazing and loving shepherding. We have a date of December 1 at our Animal Welfare Approved butcher in Front Royal. More information in our pinned post; lamb will be available about two weeks later. Sign up now to eat well all winter. Lamb skins are also available; PM us for photos and more details.

Maryland Farm & Harvest

Our good friend Lee Langstaff, an exceptional shepherd and teacher!

At the picturesque Shepherd’s Hey Farm in Montgomery County, farmer Lee Langstaff cares for her sheep’s wool while it’s both on and off the animal. But it’s up to professional sheep shearer Emily Chamelin to remove the wool in one continuous piece—a task that takes some careful choreography. Then it’s off to The Mill at Meadowlands, where Ruth Lamb cleans the wool and spins it into yarn.

Our sheep Peggy (aka Little Bit) got on a Zoom call with some other grassfed cuties... support your local farms!

"Hey Peggy, there's some cud chewing noise. Can you mute yourself?"

We couldn't resist 😊 but in all seriousness, want to send a smile, thank you, and "hang in there" to ALL of our regional farmers (not just the one's whose animals got on our 'Benefits of Going Grassfed' #Zoom call) for their hard work #stillfarming through this pandemic. Many have had to learn new digital platforms and quickly build new packing and distribution systems in order to pivot to direct sales. And that's on top of the already busy nature of Spring.

Now is a perfect time to invest your grocery dollars into your local food community. To find a farmer near you, or get listed, visit the Find-A-Farmer Or Market Map on our website.

To help us continue to help farmers, consider donating to Future Harvest.
