Celebrating 34 years of diversified, horse-powered family farming.

Fair Winds Farm is a 42 acre diversified, horse powered, family operated  farm. We work together with our horses, chickens, sheep, goats, turkeys, pigs and perennial and vegetable gardens to feed ourselves and our community. Jay and Janet run the farm business with the help of many others, including: daughter Erica and family (Jason, Jonas and Margaret), son Reuben, and friends Mary-Diane, John and Joe. Through the participation of each of these minds and bodies, the farm evolves to suit its farmers. We thank each for their contributions and welcome you to come and visit.
