Wingstem Farm rests directly between Goose Creek and the mountains just southwest of the Peaks of Otter in Goose Creek Valley, north of Montvale, VA. We raise chickens, honey bees, and mushrooms, with a few hops, and miscellaneous vegetables, herbs, and dye plants. We are learning more and more everyday about a permaculture approach to how we live on the farm, its main principles informing our evolving philosophy. Human health depends on the health of the environment. Our production sites are planned according to these principles, and altered based on successes and failures. We strive to maximize the ecological integrity of the farm and it's wooded mountains, grasslands, and wetland ecosystem (protected by USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and Virginia Outdoors Foundation conservation easements).
