Calvert Enterprises is the family farm of Joe, Niki, Hannah, Micah, Bethany and Tabitha Calvert. Our mission is to work together as a family, raising most of our own food and producing excellent meats and produce to offer to our neighbors as well. We want to steward and improve the land in a way that respects the work of the Creator and the blessings He has given us, while growing food that nourishes the health of those who eat it, and living a lifestyle of nurturing our children to grow toward God.
Naturally Raised Produce
We offer naturally raised produce such as tomatoes, a variety of salad greens, sugar snap peas, carrots, beets, melons, southern peas, onions, garlic, and more! To protect the health of our family and our neighbors, we do not use any chemical inputs on our produce, even those permitted by organic standards. Instead we use mechanical methods of weed and pest control such as weed barrier, insect netting, and diatomaceous earth. We're working to build our soil with lots of good compost and natural supplementation to bring you the most nutritious produce possible!
Through October we will be at the Downtown Conway Farmer's Market on Front Street from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturdays. Come visit us there and see what we have in season, or contact us directly to buy straight from the farm!
Our pigs love their pasture! Pastured pork can mean a lot of different things, but in our case it means that the pigs are rotationally grazed right along with the cows, and they eat a surprising amount of grass, along with roots and other things they can forage. With frequent moves to fresh ground and a low stocking rate, our pigs do not stink. (They are loud, though, when feeding time rolls around!) We feed a small supplement of only non-GMO feed, and give them no hormones, antibiotics, or chemical de-wormers.
We have 10 pigs available this fall. Click here to read purchasing details and print a reservation form.
Lamb is a delicious alternative to more commonly consumed meats. Like beef, lamb can be raised entirely on grass, and our sheep are rotated along with the other animals for fresh, optimal grazing on a regular basis. Careful selection of individual sheep along with rotation and natural de-worming methods are required to raise healthy animals without using chemical de-wormers. This fall we are offering four lambs that can be purchased whole or by the half, processed by our local meat processing company, and we may also have some available by the piece at next year's farmer's market. Purchasing details and reservation form coming soon.
