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. (SPRING 2017 UPDATE: We have applied for organic certification of our fields, crops, and poultry!)
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 a local farmers market (in Albany at Cook Park on Thursdays or The Crossings on Saturdays) or stop by our farm stand for eggs and seasonal produce. Please call call ahead for chicken, rabbit, pork, or turkey!
