Our goal at French Family Farm is to produce high quality produce in a transparent, sustainable, and healthy manner. To be good stewards of the land and of the livestock we raise. (Proverbs 12:10)
High Quality - Much of the produce you can buy from the typical grocer lacks cleanliness and proper care. Even the products labeled "organic" often lacks the care it needs to be consumed (remember the salmonella outbreak in the organic spinach a few years ago?). Vegetables are not the only place that high quality is needed. Much of the meat we buy is not fit to eat. A few years ago Time magazine printed a story about meat processing on a factory scale. They wrote that 20% of the store bought chicken you buy is water weight. That water is contaminated with fecal matter from poor processing. Yuck! No wonder we spend so much of our hard earned money on medial care, we have been eating manure!
At French Family Farm we take great care with our produce and meat. We process our chicken on a small scale and use a top quality slaughter house for our beef. Plus, we have you to do our inspection. You can come by on slaughter day and watch us slaughter. You are the best inspectors we can have. Better than any government bureaucrat.
Transparent - We have an open door policy. Come to our farm any business day (Monday -Friday 9:00 am - 4:00 pm; please call and let us know you are coming, this is a working farm) You likely can't go and see your chicken in a confinement barn on a corporate farm. Or, watch your chicken be slaughtered at a corporate slaughter house. But you can on our farm. Call and schedule a farm tour to see for yourself.
Sustainable - At French Family Farm we believe in being good stewards of the land the Lord has given us. The Biblical word for steward is similar to our modern word manager. We believe we should manage the land in such a manner as to leave it as good or better than we received it. This is summed up in one word, sustainable.
Healthy - What good does it do us to eat food that may make us sick. We desire to produce food that you want to eat, not food that will cost you more in medical bills. Clean, healthy, nutritious food that will be good for you and your family. When you come you will find a happy farm, with happy people, with happy animals, and healthy produce.

We bought their whole broiler chickens at the bluefield farmers market. Best ever! We moved away and have missed them soooo much. But we are moving back next month and CAN'T WAIT to have their chicken again!... [more]
