Welcome to Summer Creek Farm!
Summer Creek Farm is a family run farm, located in Culpeper, Virginia. We currently run about 25 ewes and a ram, a few brood cows and a bull.
NEW! We have built a large hoop house style green house for growing early spring and late fall produce. Produce, including tomatoes, kale, lettuce, peppers, cucumbers, squash, and onions are available now, availability may vary for each product/season.
We raise our animals on a strict "all-vegetarian" diet, consisting of natural grasses, natural grains, and local hay. These feeds are free of growth hormones and antibiotics. We use pasture rotation for parasite control and our animals are kept out of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed as recommended by the USDA. Our meat products are USDA inspected and processed. Feeding "natural grasses" and "natural grains" promotes a tender and flavorful meat product without a "gamey" flavor associated with grass feeding alone.
*Upon request, we will strictly grass feed animals for those customers who would prefer grass fed meat.*
Our ewe flock consists of Texel, Southdown, Suffolk, Dorset, and Corriedale crosses. For breeding, we use a Registered Texel Ram. The sheep are bred for high quality meat animals that are healthy and grow quickly and efficiently. Our cattle herd, though small, consists of high quality brood cows and a registered Belted Galloway bull that thrive on mostly pasture year round.
