Earthwise Farm and Forest is a certified organic, draft-animal powered family farm located in Bethel, Vermont, and operated by Carl Russell and Lisa McCrory. We produce and sell certified organic milk, poultry (chicken and heritage turkey), beef, garlic, vegetables, flowers, and non-organic (though gmo-free) eggs, pork and lumber.
The emphasis of our farming enterprise is to function as a self-sufficient 'whole farm organism', applying ecological principles of Holistic Management, biodynamics, dowsing, motive (animal) power, and renewable energy to create healthy vibrant food and forest products for our family and our local community. Everything on our farm is raised using a process of intention and intuition to validate the unseen energy of Life's creative process. The name of our farm points to our belief in the inherent wisdom of established processes of the Earth, and that as we work to secure what we need from the land, we also need to validate those processes as our most valuable resources.

Products for 2015 Growing Season
Our farm is small, and though we would LOVE to have all our products out and ready for sale each day, to guarantee the highest quality, we prefer that our customers call or email ahead with the order, so that we can have your items ready for you when you arrive.
