At Hawthorne Valley Farm, we've been dedicated to producing high quality food for more than 35 years. Our biodynamic farming practices reflect our commitment to protecting the health of the earth and all who live on it, and our education and outreach programs strive to raise awareness of the social, ecological, and economic importance of agriculture in our daily lives. Hawthorne Valley Farm, like all farms, is part of the global food system and part of our regional foodshed. Through conscious collaboration, we’re working to build a new food paradigm predicated on providing nutritious food to all people in our foodshed, preserving farmland and farmland wildlife habitats, making land accessible for sustainable agriculture, enhancing regional economic vitality, and fostering connections between people and the living land.
Our vision statement reads, "nurturing the land that nurtures us" and we take this statement seriously. Our goals are: to establish a true Biodynamic Farm; to connect children and adults with the land and the food that nourishes them; and to provide agricultural products of the highest quality. Through the farm’s products, we hope to open an educational dialogue about our environment, our economy, and ourselves. Adding value to our farm products through our Dairy, Farm Store, Bakery, and Sauerkraut Cellar allows us to grow our farm in a balanced way–with less stress on the land, plants and animals. The income from these "value-added" activities coupled with the greater profit margin from direct marketing permits the farm to maintain a reasonable and "human" scale. Thus we are able to avoid the monoculturally-based, industrial-scale, factory-farming methods which are prevalent in the country today.
