The farm has been in operation since 1996 by the Stewart family, practicing conventional farming with regards to sustainability and regeneration by rotationally grazing their cattle on 65 acres throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall. Their heritage poultry operation was established in 2017 and follows a 100% free range on pasture farming technique. The combination of chickens following cattle on pasture is a true example of regenerative farming. Deer Run Farm meats and egg products are available all throughout the year at local farmers markets, directly off the farm and online.
Loudoun Center Apiaries: Beekeeper Jeff Pfoutz began keeping bees in 2002 and operates Loudoun Center Apiaries, LLC. managing 15-20 honey producing colonies in central Loudoun and several colonies on the Waterford Foundation's Phillips Farm. The production of surplus honey by the bees in our area normally takes place from approximately March 15 to June 30; we call this the "honey flow." Surplus honey is that which the bees produce above their daily needs and what they need as reserves. Surplus honey is extracted as the bees cure it resulting in several distinct wildflower honeys as the mix of flower sources changes.

Our family has been growing produce for our own family for several years and we love to share with our community. We grow a variety of produce year round and sell locally, and at Myersville Farmer's Market. We like to get to know our customers and educate them about their food.”

The Copper Penny Farm: Copper Penny Farm began in 2005 when Chuck and Nancy Gardetto first met and discovered a mutual fondness for animals and dirt.
