The Story of Our Farm
is a Story of Farming In America
From a coin found in the garden dating to pre-colonial America, to our modern internationally visited farm, the story of this place reflects trends in economics, families, technology and culture.
Once known as Smith Dairy, this farm was a thriving source of milk for the local community for many years.
Confined pigs, field-crop vegetables, a variety of poultry rearing, certified-organic hay and horse boarding were all profitable business models for a short time, as well as being simply a rental home.
We are very grateful for our modern niche market centered around mushrooms and other homestead products. Dustan has developed a unique mycological technique to help us cultivate the variety of mushrooms we grow. Greenwood Farm continues to diversify in our offerings, while maintaining excellent quality. Our plan to continue to expand into permaculture-based silviculture will offer a wide variety of opportunities, including physical and digital products and classes.
