Welcome, and thank you for visiting Walnut Hill Farm.
Walnut Hill Farm is a family owned and operated diverse pasture based livestock farm in the heart of Stafford County Virginia. Jeff and Ginny Adams are the operators of Walnut Hill Farm. We feature several heritage breeds of livestock; including Hog Island Sheep, American Milking Devon cows, Tamworth pigs. The breeds were specifically chosen because they fit into our management style and objectives. The animals we raise are hearty, easy keepers that are meant to be raised on a forage only diet. The pigs and chicken are the only animals that receive grain.
Two of the above breeds are considered critically endangered by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy: they are American Milking Devon, and Hog Island Sheep.
Meat and eggs from our animals are available as individual cuts, halves or whole animals. Individual cuts are frozen weighed, labeled and vacuum packed.
All beef, pork and lamb is USDA inspected and vacuum wrapped, weighed and labeled. Chickens are processed on farm.
In addition to several heritage breeds we raise Freedom Ranger chickens.
At Walnut Hill Farm we refuse to add any hormones to the animals diet. Antibiotics are not used in feeds, but may be used to cure a sick animal. Any animal that has had antibiotics for any reason will not be processed by us.
We consider our farming practices to be low input sustainable agriculture. We care deeply for the health and welfare of the animals under our care, and see every animal on the farm at least once a day.
Stop by to see our farming methods for yourself, so that you can be the certifier, and not some government agency. Our personal standards can not and will not be be compromised. We work with nature, we do not attempt to bend her will. We like to believe that we farm as your Grandparents or Great-Grandparents would have farmed. Farming is a time honored profession, and we consider ourselves professionals. As J. I. Rodale once said "To be "organic" was to know, to understand and to use the lessons of nature in the evaluation of the "blessings" of science and technology."
J. I. Rodale went on to say "If it is synthetic avoid it. If it goes through a factory, examine it with special care. Follow the dictates of the cycle of life when growing things, and you will be blessed with foods of surprising taste and quality that are little troubled by insects or disease."
Farm tours are available by appointment.

We just got back from the best hayride ever. We spent about an hour and a half walking around and seeing the pigs get fed and watered before that. My kids learned a lot and had a great time.... [more]
We found Walnut Hill while driving by and stopped in to purchase some grillers. We ended up also purchasing eggs and other meat and were extremely happy with the quality of everything.... [more]

I live near this farm and pass it almost everyday. They have free ranging chickens and a movable chicken house tractor. The chicken house is moved every few days.... [more]

When a ewe (female sheep) has a lamb in spring and raises the lamb, all is normal as nature intended. But birthing doesn?t always go as planned. Sometimes the mother rejects her offspring, and sometimes the mother doesn?t survive the first week.... [more]
