Timbercreek Farm is dedicated to responsible agriculture that celebrates natural diversity and promotes ecological stewardship. Our method is based on the agricultural practices of the permaculture movement.
Unlike the monoculture abstractions that have replaced American farms, Timbercreek utilizes the complimentary interactions of species to benefit one another and the land. By farming in accordance with the wisdom of nature we are able to keep Timbercreek Farm pesticide, herbicide, fertilizer, antibiotic, and hormone free.
Our animals are raised on healthy pasture in a stress-free environment. Our rotational grazing method keeps all of our stock on fresh grass while preventing the soil depletion and erosion common to “free-range” operations. The net result is a neighborhood friendly, sustainable system that continually renews the fertility of our farm.
Timbercreek Farm is focused on local. We believe that local businesses are an important facet of a strong community and part and parcel to environmental conservation. Local businesses are run and staffed by people who have a vested interest in the future of our area. By relying on local businesses to provide the materials for our farm, we are investing our dollars in people who are accountable to our community. Buying local reduces the carbon footprint of our farm and allows us to be better educated about the environmental practices of businesses we deal with and the origins of the products we buy. Our focus on local also means that our products are marketed exclusively to the Central Virginia area. We believe that we should provide the same accountability to our customers that we seek in our vendors.
We invite any and all to come out and see the farm in action. Come see the community driven and environmentally responsible future of agriculture. Tours are available, please email or call to schedule one today. Tours are offered during our growing season April to October monthly. Tours are offered in English or Spanish.
