Earthwise Farm and Forest is a certified organic, draft-animal powered homestead farm located in Bethel, Vermont. As a diversified, (partially) off-grid homestead farm, the farmers of Earthwise produce the meat, milk, eggs, vegetables and maple syrup that they need to sustain ourselves while also feeding the broader community. By keeping their enterprises small, they are able to maintain an intimate connection to the land and animals in a way that nurtures the whole farm organism, providing a landscape that is vibrant, abundant and inviting for all to enjoy.
