About Us / Shankstead EcoFarm History: Shankstead EcoFarm is our certified organic, 4th generation family farm located in Chambersburg, PA. Since the farm has been our family homestead, farmed continually by our parents, grandparents and great grandparents for close to 100 years, we have called it "Shankstead".Our family vision however, is more than just growing certified organic foods. Our vision is “to dress and to keep” God’s creation by farming and ranching with a deliberate attempt to recreate and imitate the ecosystem as He originally designed it. (Gen 2:15) Some call it ‘beyond organic.’ We call it "EcoFarming".It has often impressed us that as God was creating the various biological components of the ecosystem, He pronounced each one 'good'. (Genesis 1:10, 12, 18, 21, 25) But when he had finished, and all the components were living and breathing together in perfect symphony, he surveyed "everything that he had made and behold it was very good" (Genesis 1:31) What an understatement!
