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.

Products for sale include 

Organic raw milk, organic heritage turkeys, organic meat birds, organic garlic, organic cut flowers, organic potatoes, organic onions, and pasture-raised eggs. We also market fuel wood and hard/softwood lumber.

We offer a number of On-Farm Workshops throughout the year, and, on occasion, we will speak at conferences or workshops covering topics similar to those that we offer on-farm. We hope that you are able to come to our farm on one of our appointed workshop days. Continue reading to learn what is happening for 2014!
