Singing Wren farm is a family farm 1.5 hours north of Pittsburgh in the Shenango Valley. Perched on a ridge facing west, our farm encompasses twenty two acres of open pasture and woods. There are mature orchards and new orchards along with a large vegetable garden. We raise heritage hens for eggs, broilers for meat, and heritage American Guinea hogs for meat as well as tillage and brush control. Our team of Norwegian Fjord mares can help with logging and moving heavy items.
Established in 2016, we are a new farm on an old farmstead that had been unmanaged for many decades. Our fields were rented out for corn/soy rotation and the barn was kept up but unused. the fruit trees were unpruned and the garden reverted to grass. In 2015 we purchased the farm and in 2017 we purchased an adjoining small holding to bring us to our present size. This farm is a work in progress, where birth and death, growth and decay, sowing and harvest coexist. We make mistakes and strive to learn from them. Since taking over management of the land our fields are now organic pastures planted out in clover and grasses. Our pigs, chickens, and horses all feed off the hay we bale from our fields. Our apples trees provide not just apples for our enjoyment, but also fodder for pigs, chickens, and horses. We are in the process of developing a permaculture inspired vision for the entire property.
The foundation and motivation for our farm is a deep rooted faith in Jesus Christ. We serve at His pleasure.
