—– and so:

Boyce’s Shilofarm is more than just a CSA – it includes many different traditional farm elements that are from the time when a 80 acre farm was the sole means of support for a family. Well, retirement makes it possible for us to do that here, and we want to share it. So – here is what we do, and why we do it:

  • The farm has a CSA, which is the main point of contact with the community. It also is something that keeps us going almost all year. 
  • We raise hay. Quite a bit of it actually. There are a few hardy people who seem to enjoy helping us bring in the hay each summer.
  • We have 26 acres of Forest (and a sawmill). It is a great place to get away from Urban/Suburban life for a walk.
  • We had a small herd of beef – up until 2023… a now-rare breed called Red Poll, which are noted for the flavor of their meat and being easy to fatten on grass. In theory, the beef herd is no more. That is good and sad at the same time!
  • We have interesting farm places and things to let kids and adults experience hands-on what a farm is.
