Painting Day: Pasture Song Farm

Pasture Song Farm is located on Lundale Farm but is across Ridge Road from Knee High Farm and Ironstone Creamery.

Farmers: Clara and Jeremy

Pasture Song Farm was named for our admiration and love of pasture. The sound of tall grass shifting and swaying in the wind is music to our ears and brings feelings of awe and contentment. These feelings that arise while in an open pasture, or savanna, seem to be universal. The quiet beauty of the pasture song is emblematic of the goodness that grassland brings to land and to people.

The main component of this goodness is the regenerative nature of pasture. Grasses and legumes, the primary components of pasture, act symbiotically to sequester carbon into the soil and feed soil life. This builds robust and healthy soil, and is critical to the success of our crop rotations and ultimately to our success as farmers.

Pasture plays a central role in our farm. We raise our livestock on pasture, which provides them with a clean, nourishing environment. We use pasture in our crop rotation, to improve soil health and tilth in preparation for grain crops. We've combined livestock, pasture, and grain crops into one rotation, which is creating positive synergistic effects that are only just beginning to reveal themselves. These practices are the root of how we farm.
We are committed to creating sustainable systems that engender healthier land, healthier products, and a healthier community.

Important:

If you plan to paint on any painting days at Robin Hill you must email me 4 days before the painting date. I need to provide a list to the owner.

Justin is farming the property.  He will open the white gates to the driveway by 9 AM.  Please see him when you arrive.  If you do not see him you can reach him on his cell 412-310-0956.  He will be out and about working on the farm all date.

Mrs. Hitschler, the property owner, asked that we let you know when leaving the property, exiting onto Garrett Mill Rd is quite dangerous as the cars come down the hill at a clip.  

When you arrive Justin, the farmer who is farming the land will introduce you to the painting locations.

If possible the owners have asked us to carpool..


Robin Hill Organics was founded by the husband and wife team of Justin Donaldson and Karen Brogan in the fall of 2017 with the goal of proving high quality, food to our community. Our family works together to bring the healthiest food possible from the earth straight to your table. The farm is located on the property of historic Garrett Mill Farm, located in Willistown Township, Pennsylvania. The property is preserved through a conservation easement that protects the land from development through the Willistown Conservation Trust. We are not only grateful to be raising our three children in this beautiful space, but also proud to be able to instill in them our values when it comes to keeping chemicals out of our foods, knowing where our food comes from, and sharing a connection with the land.
