Stillwater Valley Farm

We are greenhorn farmers in our twenties who live on a historic, falling-apart old farm. It was previously farmed by at least 4 generations of family before us, but had been out of farming use for many years before we started again.

Currently, we are planting and preparing for a good season. We have a new market house for selling our products and have purchased a popup gazebo to allow outdoor display of our goods. In the growing stage is a small orchard that will provide us with fruit in the next few years. Our chickens are now laying pastured brown and blue/green eggs and we have expanded our flock to double its previous size.

We currently offer fresh vegetables and fruits in-season, as well as maple syrup all year round. We also offer some wild products, such as leeks in the spring, watercress, hickory nuts in the fall, and some jams and applesauce all year round (or until supplies are depleted). Some vegetables are also held in cold storage (potatoes, onions, carrots, beets) for sales all year round as conditions permit.

In addition, we sell found animal skulls and bones in a cleaned condition for craft, decoration, or other uses. We also offer informational sessions on maple sugaring, foraging, canning and preserving, and other outdoor/farm skills.

Most of our seed is not certified organic and a few varieties may be treated. Beyond that, the plants and produce are currently grown without the use of any pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, or other chemicals, though in years past we have used limited fertilizer and fungicide in years of extreme conditions or heavy disease pressure. No chemicals are added in storage or processing of any product, either, although in the case of jams or like products, non-organic ingredients such as conventional sugar or lemon juice may be used.

We are happy to answer any questions.

Our farm stand is open at irregular hours throughout the entire summer, or products can be ordered by contacting us via email. We prefer to take large orders in advance via email, so we can have them prepared and boxed up for a pickup at an arranged date.
