After spending our first lifetimes in town puttering with a garden and the grind of modern America, Suzanne and Rick knew it was time to re-connect with mother earth, green up and show our 2 daughters that there is more to living than street lights and sirens. So when I was fortunate enough to retire, we found a place close to Suzanne's work at the local hospital and we continued our connection with agriculture from where we started 33 years ago and Faerie Springs Farm was born. Originally named for the first place we were able to farm in Berkeley Springs, WV, which was beautiful and awash in wet springs and mountain beauty, we relocated closer to Suzanne's work and Alexandra's high school of choice, to a lovely hilltop, fine pastures, and good earth for growing.
Alexandra, myself, Suzanne and Kate try to provide a variety of produce and meats in an honorable humane way and provide tours and knowledge to people of all ages of where their food can come from.
Farming is hard work and messy but it can be rewarding in many ways which is fortunate because the pocket book is not always one of them. Come visit with us and see our beef calves, Nubian, Saanen, Alpine and Angora goats, (we milk the dairy goats at 7:00 am and 7:00pm from January to October.), Registered Glouceshire Old Spot Pigs, a variety of chickens, Narragansett and Royal Palm turkeys, various rabbits, Registered Lincoln Longwool Sheep, Honey Bees and perhaps even kittens.
A farm is its own ecosystem, merging with the surrounding area. Depending upon the recent weather, we may have a sea of mud, a mountain of snow, or just plain dirt and dust but there is usually plenty of poo to go around from the barn yard to the compost pile.
