FiveDollarFarm is a small intensively managed farm in Southeastern Pennsylvania. The farm currently produces chicken, herbs, vegetables, and landscape perennials. The goal of FiveDollarFarm is to produce enough slow food for approximately 25 families in our immediate area. We hope to be an inspiration to others and to teach what we have learned to as many people as possible. We aspire to have a micro influence on the planet and have committed to do our part with the resources that God has given us to care for.
We follow the principles of other farmers who are attempting to solve many problems as they relate to farming. Some of these challenges are energy management and consumption, healthy food that heals land as it is produced, spiritual satisfaction, and myriad others. Although we are not connected with Joel Salatin, we often refer to his material and online information to assist us in maintaining an evolutionary stable strategy. His books and videos inspire us to do more for ourselves and learn the importance of caring for ourselves and others around us.
If you would like to visit the farm please contact us through phone or email to make arrangements.
