The Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE) is organizing a startup trip to Whiffletree Farm – a family run, sustainable farm in Warrenton, VA. Farmers Jesse and Liz Straight raise pastured broiler chickens, laying hens, and turkeys; foraging pork; and 100% grass fed beef. No chemicals, no antibiotics. Non-GMO grains for the pigs and poultry, in addition to fresh pasture.
Participants will be touring the farm and will also get to spend an hour with Jesse. Jesse will share the business elements of running a sustainable farm in more detail. Come see how this local farm operates and thrives and learn about the changes taking place in our food system.
