Willow Creek Farm, the home of The Maiden Farmer, is a family farm in the bucolic hamlet of Bedminster. The property has been a horse and hay farm for the past 20 years, but historically it was a Dutch dairy farm owned by the Cowperthwaite family. We have rich soils, shady woodland and nutrient-rich riparian banks. We practice sustainable means of growing crops, enriching the soil naturally, completely without the use of herbicides, pesticides, or any yucky stuff. We offer a 20 week CSA, as well as a variety of 100% grass-fed, certified organic dairy, meats and pasture raised poultry from our partner farm in PA.
