Greenacres

Farm

Generative Since 1949

Mr. Nippert, a Greenacres founder, recognized that years of growing grain had depleted the soil, and set out to convert the farm from a grain operation to a cattle farm, believing that cattle and other livestock would naturally fertilize the pastures. His theory paid off, as Greenacres is now covered in lush green pastures and healthy, living soil created through multi-species grazing.

Agriculture

Department

Livestock Production

We raise a variety of animals using humane and low-stress handling techniques. Grass-finished Black Angus cattle and lamb, woodland raised pork, and a mixture of pastured poultry. We limit the use of antibiotics and avoid using pesticides or herbicides where animals will be grazing. Pasture rotation is strictly managed to help keep both animals and land healthy.

Department

Vegetable Production

Holistically and sustainably we grow a variety of vegetables that are exceptional in quality and ability to nourish. You can sample and purchase them at the Greenacres Farm Store or when we are at various farmer’s markets. They are free of chemical fertilizers and pesticides because of our growing methods like crop rotation, cover crops, and a living soil approach.

Department

Greenhouse Production

The greenhouse raises the majority of the plant materials needed by other departments. They work closely with the landscaping and events teams to provide over 5,000 annuals for the seasonal plantings and events around Greenacres. The vegetable production team relies on them to assist with vegetable seed propagation, as well as oversee the micro-greens program.
