Our Families farming history began way back in the early 1700's when our ancestors migrated from what was than known as Saxony Germany. On April 20th, 1734, our first family members sailed from Germany to what is now known as Penn's Landing in Philadelphia, PA. They sailed aboard the Ship St. Andrew, mastered by Capt. John Stedman. On Sept. 22, 1734 our first Famiily Farm was settled near Society Run in Fredrick Twp., Montgomery County, PA. PIG Farming was our families specialty from 1734 until the mid 1950's. Allot has changed since than. Our Christ centered cow-calf operation in now located in Springfield Twp., Bradford County, PA, where we raise a closed herd of 100% Grass-fed/Full-blooded BEEFALO. We keep our spring calving in sync with nature, which matches our heifers & cow's highest nutritional requirements to our farms highest and best production of fresh forages. We also raise 20-30 year-round pastured TAM-ROC cross pigs annually. Our poultry consists of 85 brown egg layers, and we offer approx. 150 roaster chickens annually through our on-farm store.
We organically maintain 100 acres that consists of 22 acres of rotational BEEFALO pastures, 2 acres of rotational pig & poultry pastures, 3 acres of rotational Horse pastures and approx. 70 acres of Alfalfa, Clover/Grass, and Mixed grass hay.
We have never used chemical pesticides or herbicides on our pastures, hay fields or fence lines. We are NOT a certified Organic farm, because we reserve the right to treat our animals if there is a life threatening sickness or injury. We do however prefer the natural & organic approach to farming to promote sustainability and healthy living for our animals, environment and our families that includes our customers.
