small scale family farm
We work hard and want our farm to stand the test of time, so we are diversifying. We started with greens in fall and winter of 2019 and plan to gently expand as demand grows.
Our mission is to be better stewards of the land, raise our children on a farm, and connect to members of the local community to fresh wholesome food.
We are using organic and are implementing no-till practices to build soil and plant health to provide the best and safest vegetables as possible to the local community.
ABOUT THE NAME
We named our farm after the historic place close to our farm, Solway.
Solway was about eight miles from Eastview. A post office was established in 1898 but closed in 1958. There are records of a mill, Hill's Mill, a one room schoolhouse, Ford School, built in 1910, and the homes and farms to many families, who's ancestors still call it home today.
Sol in French translated to English means "ground.
Sol in Spanish translated to English means "sun".
“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.” -Wendell Berry
