Underline Farm is situated on thirty acres of land in the hilltowns of western Massachusetts. We are devoted to building soil, supporting thriving ecosystems, and feeding our community well. That means healthy animals raised on diverse pastures and organic grains. Our processes are influenced by the principles of permaculture and holistic management along with several years of experience working on diversified farms.
Cattle do most of the mowing on our fifteen acres of pasture, while the pigs provide endless entertainment and a diesel-free plow on the end of each of their noses, cleaning up both field edges and food scraps. Our pastured broiler chickens and laying hens are pest-control experts and top-notch fertilizers, leaving a wash of lush green in their wake.
This steep and rocky land is poorly suited for growing vegetables on any marketable scale, but it is perfect for feeding a variety of livestock who turn those rugged plants into nutrient-dense meat and eggs. With short grazing periods and long recovery times, the land thanks us with increasingly productive and biodiverse pastures. We take our stewardship jobs seriously and are honored to tend the land and animals in a way that creates so much abundance.
