Originally part of the “Hawk Farm” purchased by Joseph Hawk in 1819 for $3,420 (a tidy sum in those days), we acquired the property in 2004 and restored the two stone buildings in 2005-2006. The month of acquisition housed a blue moon, hence the farm’s name.
Today, one would describe our farm as a small family farm, situated on 17 acres providing just about everything a farm family could want: gardens, pastures, orchard, hay fields, woodlands, fresh water springs and outbuildings. We have worked hard since 2004 to bring the farm back to its natural beauty. It is a labor of love that we wish to share.
In the summer, you will find us at the Holland Township Farmers Market.
This quaint market, located at the Holland Township Fire House on Rt. 519 (at Andersen Rd), is small and the vendors are REALLY local.
The market is open from June through mid-September on Saturdays from 9am to 1pm.
All of our products will be on sale as seasonally available.
Enjoy a great assortment of 100% grass fed Dexter cattle (15-17 lbs for $100). The flavor and succulence of Dexter Beef are the result of two things. The unique characteristics of the Dexter Breed and the traditional way our Dexter Cattle are raised. Our steers are milk fed until weaned by their mother at 10 -12 months and 100% Grass fed with good quality hay in winter months.
Here's what Mark Bittman had to say about Dexter beef.
"This summer, I was blown away to discover a restaurant called Prairie Whale, in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, where they serve an Irish breed of cow called Dexter—the porterhouse I had was sensational."
As always, we will be at the Holland Township Farmers Market on Rt. 519 and Andersen Road starting June 2, 2018 on Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM.
Don’t forget, the barn and the outdoor eating area “Bedrock Plaza” are a great place for any event where everyone can enjoy the farm experience. See more under barn rentals.
