Jeff & Jan White

Long Business Description:

Chestnut Creek Farm was established in 2005 by Jeffrey and Jan White.  The 64-acre farm located in Carroll County is compromised of rolling forested hills, flat lowland meadows, fields in production, a fish pond, and several streams.  The majority of tillable acreage is kept in corn and soybeans using no-till farming.

The fields nearest the farmstead rotate between vegetables grown for the family and farmers market and legumes (to restore soil quality).  Blueberry bushes were planted in 2007 and came into production in 2010.

A small fruit  orchard comprised of apple, peach, pear and plum trees has been started.

We also raise some pastured turkeys that are available in November for Thanksgiving.

Raise Katahdin ewes, and Katahdin/Dorper crossbreds.
