Wine Creek Farm

“Our vision for sustainable agriculture leads to the regeneration of the local ecology and the relationship between society and the land.”

“We are a diversified small farm practicing ecological design to develop previously overgrazed land into a sustainable food forest focusing on native plants. We have a regenerative approach to agriculture and realize that our farm is part of the greater ecosystem, and thus must be designed and managed with that in mind. Our practices are natural, and we never spray as we believe in supporting life and not promoting death. Although we do not produce meat commercially, animals both wild and domesticated play an integral role in the regenerative process. We include our wildlife and actively provide them flora and habitat.”

“We grow and harvest a wide range of produce, as well as make a wide range of seasonings and are working on expanding our line of herbal preparations. We focus on native food crops like Sumac, Sassafrass, Spiceberry and Paw Paws.  We love Paw Paws, so much that we’ve planted over 60 already and will plant at least 30-50 trees this year.”
