What the Farm/VSU

Chris and Kelly Shepherd, owners of What The Farm, incorporate farming and grazing practices that rebuild the soil organically while restoring degraded soil biodiversity in hopes to improve soil health. What The Farm is on a 33-acre plot with approximately 10 wooded acres used for agroforestry. They specialize in Dexter cattle, Dorper and St. Croix hair sheep, Duroc pigs, Cornish Cross chickens, and white turkeys. The Shepherds believe there is a better way compared to commercial farming operations and have focused on a simple mission of: serve the SOIL, serve the ANIMALS, serve the COMMUNITY.
