We are a small farm in the foothills of Virginia's Blue Ridge mountains in Madison, Virginia and produce gourmet grass-fed Red Devon beef. The land is open, verdant pasture with natural springs and streams. In 2005, we purchased the property and immediately inherited two delapidated outbuildings, a springhouse, broken fencing, and a tired farmhouse. We've since installed safe, new perimeter fencing, cross-fenced the pastures, remodeled one outbuilding as a custom furniture shop, installed a deep well and fresh water lines to the fields, built a small horsebarn and are working to restore the vitality of the soil. The 206 year old farmhouse is still undergoing continuous improvement - the history of Springhaven Farm is in the sidebar.Our guiding principle is enhancing the agricultural health of our farm and creating an integrated, living organism that exceeds the definitions of "organic" or "sustainable" commonly found in today's press. We do this without pestcides, herbicides, or other substances that negatively impact the environment, the animals, and ultimately us. Everything on the farm is recycled. We focus on building a solid foundation of permaculture for our farm, beginning with the minerals and micro-organisms in the soil. We start from the ground up!
