About Us / Abundance Acres Farm History: We are renovating a former Amish dairy farm (which had no electric service or indoor plumbing when we arrived) and seek that zone between the Amish (what one might call slow, old-fashioned, or simple) and what they call English (fast, modern, or overly complicated). Even though we are not joining the local Amish community, we are the oddities here. We call it #goingAmish.
At Abundance Acres Farm, our pasture-raised, free-ranging animals are supplemented with locally grown and milled, non-GMO, organically grown (and soy-free, when available) feed; our own no-spray alfalfa blend hay; and seasonal fresh forage and fodder.
We breed Crème d'Argent meat rabbits (a rare breed, becoming less so) and American Guinea Hogs (rare heritage-breed lard pigs) and maintain flocks of eggs-tremely free-ranging Moyer's Red Layer hens. We pasture-raise turkeys and meat chickens seasonally and produce lots of organically grown, open-pollinated and heirloom veggies--including many varieties in the Slow Food USA Ark of Taste--mostly for ourselves but also sell extras at the farmers market and from the farm.
Medium and large livestock will increase our grass-fed meat products as we convert acres of cropland and meadow to grazing pastures. Until then, we custom graze dairy heifers for a neighbor's farm and make hay. Please visit us at market or call to order products for pick up at the farm: eggs, chicken, rabbit, pork, or turkey!
