Come find us in beautiful Ivy, Virginia—nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains along rolling pastures and forests, just 20 minutes outside of Charlottesville.

We’re not a family farm. We’re just a few people with a desire to care for land, and share in its bounty. 

We steward these 200 acres with the help of livestock to create a supportive habitat for birds, insects, plants, fungi, and wild animals to thrive. We don't own this land ourselves, and we acknowledge it was once the home of the native Monacan people. Much of our land management is actually inspired by legacies of global indigenous stewardship.

Bringing you delicious and nutrient-dense food is a byproduct of what we do, but the connection it inspires is at the heart of why we farm.

We believe food is one of our strongest sources of connection. Not only is it how we sustain ourselves, but it's also the way we celebrate our joys and comfort our losses. Food brings us together in the simplest and most essential ways. 

Food is also our medicine. Nourishing us with mineral richness, healthy fats, and strengthening protein. With the help of our animals, we get to restore this land, fortify its soil, and pass the abundant gifts of good nutrition right along to your dinner table. 

We've got all your grass-fed beef, lamb, and pastured pork needs covered. We offer a variety of butchered cuts, as well as the option of pre-ordering whole or half hogs and cows. If you have a specific cut or roast in mind that we don't have, just ask us! We'll do our best to make it happen.

We're eager to join a collaborative network of regenerative farms to grow our ecological impact, and to create a resilient regional food system that can adequately replace conventional agriculture. As bucolic as small-scale farming may seem, it isn't sustainable, nor capable of reversing the land degradation or social injustices inherent in our food system today.

As of now, we're a small team whose efforts are made possible by friends and neighbors willing to lend a helping hand when we need it most. We're thankful for all those who put in long working hours helping us start the farm, who routinely lend us equipment, and who step up during the thankfully rare occasions when the cows get out.

And of course to you, our valued customers who've supported us over the years, or who are just getting hooked on our exclusively pasture-raised meats. We raise our forks to you, and hope you'll continue filling your plates.
