Belle Creek Farm is a family owned sustainable homestead just minutes away from downtown Frederick and Route 15. Having a great interest in the slow food movement, we specialize in pastured eggs, meat rabbits, pastured pigs, heirloom vegetables and heritage beans. We grow many varieties of fresh herbs. We had a healthy crop of gooseberries and elderberries in 2014 and look forward to more of both this year.
It has long been our dream to become self-sufficient and live off our land in a sustainable manner. We loved the idea of raising our own food using natural methods, and without using chemicals. Not everyone has the means to grow their own fresh food at home so we are pleased to have the opportunity to make fresh produce available to you.
At the same time as we are accomplishing self-sustainment and naturally grown foods, we are teaching our children the same skills and knowledge that we have picked up on our journey, in hopes that they will pass on the same strong desire to be self-sufficient. Aside from having enough produce to sell at the Market this summer, our main goal this year is to make sure that we're using what we have grown, whether it be fresh from the garden or preserved through canning, freezing or drying.
