SpringWood Farm, Kinzers, PA – 17.7 miles

springwood farm kimberton whole foodsSpringWood Farm spreads across 220 acres of Lancaster County farmland in Kinzers, PA, just 17.7 miles from our Distribution Center in Downingtown. In 1982 Roman Stoltzfoos took over the family farm and began applying sustainable farming methods. The land rejuvenated and began to thrive with his new approach.

At the farm, pastured hens follow the grazing dairy herd in free-range style with moveable solar powered coops. The hens eat grass, insects, worms and non-GMO Project Verified, soy-free feed. Take a look at the video below and watch these happy hens wake up and come out of their houses at the farm, they even have some friendly dog companions!

WHAT DOES PASTURE-RAISED MEAN?

Pasture-raised birds spend most of their life outdoors, with a fair amount of space plus access to a barn. Many are able to eat a diet of worms, insects and grass, along with feed.

When Al and Catherine Renzi purchased the farm in 2001, they made sure that the land would stay true to its heritage by securing an easement with French and Pickering Conservation Trust to protect it from development. The couple makes award-winning goat milk cheeses and other goat milk products, and they also run a native plant nursery on their property.
