About the Farm

Stillwater Valley Farm is a multigenerational, diversified farm startup, located on an 82-acre tract of wounded land in the hills of rural Chautauqua County, NY. Generations before have worked this land, which was formerly a much larger, more contiguous piece, leaving their trail buried in the dirt – a rusty horseshoe here, a broken piece of stoneware there.

Time, hardships, and housing developments have whittled what was once two farmsteads and over 500 acres down to what it is now, and though it is scarred from its past, it still possesses great potential and immense beauty. The old farm, in disrepair and disuse for many years, seemed forgotten… until a new breed of farmer, defiant of the wrongs she saw in the food system, decided to try to do something about it, piece by precious piece.
