We both grew up on an Amish farm in Lancaster County, and during our first 11 years of marriage, owned and operated a dairy farm. Then, a little over seven years ago, we started a small family-run farm. In 2018, we purchased a small fermenting/canning business from Oasis at Bird-In-Hand. Now, we use the farm to produce homegrown vegetables for the business. Our focus is on fermented vegetables but we hope to expand to include new healthy product.
There are lots of benefits in running a small, family farm. We have the time to care about each product. We can focus on quality over quantity. There are also disadvantages. It can be hard to compete with large, mass-producing businesses and farms. That’s why we need your help. We are looking for loyal customers who are committed to fresh, quality, and healthy foods. We need people who want to support the small farms of America.
A Family Business
We started Gap View Homestead as a way to draw our family together. Ira currently does trucking part-time but we want to move into farming full-time as the business grows. Our dream is that one day, people everywhere across the U.S. would be able to experience the benefits of healthy, homegrown foods.
We believe it should be easy to live a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we work hard to make to make our fresh farm products affordable and accessible. We’ll deliver your favorite organic foods directly to your doorstep.
