Yesterday I took a trip to Wyebrook Farm in Honeybrook, PA.
I’ve been to many farms before – but mom told me this one was a little bit different.
From their website:
At Wyebrook Farm, we provide an alternative to the industrial food supply. By creating a diverse polyculture on our farm, we produce the healthiest animals and best food without the use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics.
We believe that the only way to guarantee that the food you eat is healthy, safe and nutritious is to know the farmer who produced it. We sell the products of the farm from a historic barn on the farm so that our customers can see our animals and our farming practices. We encourage you to tour the farm and ask us questions. By purchasing food from Wyebrook Farm, you support the local community and ensure that this part of Chester County retains the agricultural character that has made it one of the most productive and beautiful places in America.
At Wyebrook Farm they have a cafe that is open on the weekends as well as a market that sells their farm raised meats and veggies.
The food was delicious, but I was really excited to take a tour of the farm.
I met some really cute chicks along the way.
I even got to meet this portly fellow – who despite looking somewhat friendly, scared the bejeezes out of me!
It ended up being a really fun day – and we even stopped for ice cream on the way home! I have no doubt I’ll be back again, and next time I’ll work up the courage to tell that pig who’s boss.
