Hidden Creek Farm in Delaplane, VA is a Humane and Organic Certified conservation farm using regenerative and sustainable grass-and-forest pastured practices. HCF raises both breeding stock and meat animals, including heritage Red Poll cattle (beef), Katahdin meat sheep (lamb), heritage turkeys, Tamalitsa™ pigs (pork) developed specifically by HCF for our VA Piedmont region, and laying hens for eggs.
Our focus is on maturing animals slowly and gently on chemical- and pesticide-free pastures to provide our customers with healthy, clean, and flavorful products. We also produce organic vegetables across 11 months of the year, including salad mixes, traditional root and fruiting vegetables, specialty and ethnic varietals, micro-greens, and fresh herbs.
HCF has created a variety of value-add products ranging from unique pickles and jams, bread and cookie mixes, rhododendron-free honey, and yogurt products, to seasoned salts/rubs and herb mixes. In addition to individual cuts and packages of meats and vegetables, customers can order various 'boxed' sizes of proteins over the course of a year, or pre-order 'CSA-style' boxes of product that can be picked up at the farm or delivered to the McLean, Herndon, or Middleburg Farmers' Markets during market season.
HCF is partnering with George Mason University on a Honey Bee Initiative to develop varroa-resistant 'clean' queen bees in an attempt to combat colony collapse disorder. Locally adapted queens and nucs will be available for sale starting 2019 on a first come, first serve basis.
HCF is a working farm, so drop-in tours are not available. However, HCF does offer farm stays, workshops, and farm-related educational events to the public, and customers may, of course, come to pick up purchases at any time.
