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 garlic, milk, flowers, herbs, perennials, poultry (chicken and heritage turkey), beef, 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, 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.
