Rose and her husband Ed wanted a life style change that would allow them to spend more time together while becoming more productive and closely attuned to the community around them, So Rose purchased a farm in upstate New York. They have named it SOVA Farms which stands for "Stewards of Vast Abundance." They feel blessed to be able to work the land to the betterment of the soil, the grass, the animals and their customers.
They have had the farm fields certified organic along with the eggs from their free ranging, pastured hens. This year they will add add organic broiler chickens, organic herbs and a few organic vegetables to their offering. Saint Croix hair sheep will arrive in the fall and will give birth to organic lamb next spring. Also next year they will add their own grass fed beef to their pastures.
The decision to have the farm and animals certified organic was an easy one, and even though it means adhering to exacting standards, their customers can be assured of not only high quality food but also know that we are practicing sustainable farming.
