Eastman Farm Interview

Despite growing up on a Vermont farm himself, Joseph Morel of Eastman Farm didn’t think that there would be an opportunity to continue this way of life while raising his own family.

But through perseverance, developing community with neighboring farms, assistance from the Vermont Land Trust, as well as support from the people of Barnard, Joseph and his wife Amy have succeeded in cultivating their farm business. And they’ve done it because they embraced a holistic approach to raising cattle and pigs: one that benefits the animals, the soil, the local ecology, and their neighbors and customers.

You can find the Morel’s grass-fed meets on the Eastman Farm website, as well as at the Feast and Field markets, held weekly in the summer and fall.
