Sweetwater Farm’s 80 acres of cultivated land has been supplying the community for the last 230 years. This farm started out in the 1700’s supplying wheat and beef for the revolutionary war. Through the generations this farm has taken on many different hands and has produced products ranging from wheat to milk to lamb.
Operated as a dairy farm by the Coolidge family 1912-1978, the farm is now owned by the Davis Family and known as Sweetwater Farm — named after the sweet tasting water found here.
The mission of the farm is:
At Sweetwater we have a wide range of animals, this enables us to use multi-species rotational grazing. Our sheep lead in the rotation through our pastures and the cows follow. The goats intermingle in this rotation and the chickens seem to go where they want!
Not only do we take measures to make sure our animals receive the best care and health, but we are very aware of giving our hay fields and pastures what they need in order to be healthy as well. We see the farm as a sustainable cycle that we naturally maintain and are a part of.
