SILVER WILLOW FARM

Come to Silver Willow Farm to experience the beauty and peace of nature and farming combined. Walk through the fields with horses and cows, feeling your stress melt away as the calves play and the horses ask for a scratch. Discover how horses can help you grow and heal, reconnecting you to your life’s purpose. Learn about our mixed-species rotational grazing and how it works with nature so that organic, grass-fed beef and lamb can be grown while sequestering carbon. Sample the meat grown on the farm and taste the difference this style of farming produces. We are excited to share our farm and animals with you!
