We have 8 kids that range from 13 to 2, are Catholic, and love our family, farm, and farm team! The Farm Team generally consists of about 5 full time employees, several part time employees, 1-4 interns, and a stellar poultry processing crew.
We work hard to do our work excellently, quickly, and with joy.
We raise and sell about 15,000 chickens, eggs from about 2400 hens, about 900 turkeys, and around 140 steers per year. We also collaborate with many other excellent farmers and producers to fill out the diet and offerings for our customers! You can see all we offer at www.whiffletreefarmva.com.
Everything is raised on fresh pasture, non-GMO feed, no antibiotics, no chemicals, and our beef is 100% grass-fed.
We sell through our Farm Store, Neighborhood Deliveries that range from Maryland to Central Virginia, and to many restaurants and wholesale customers.
If you have an eager-beaver attitude and are earnest about doing excellent work, we would like you to join us in our internship program!
