Since day one, Wild Fox Farm has been fueled
by the intimate and relentless devotion of Ben
and Karah Davies. With their 2012 purchase of
41 acres in Pennsylvania's Butter Valley, their
vision to see the land enriched and productive
has led to continued expansion of Wild Fox Farm's product offerings , more land purchases, leases and strategic partnerships. Many local chefs, foodies and families now rely on the farm for year-round sustenance and, as the land is
regenerated, so are the lives of the community
that it supports. The farm team has grown and
flourished as well in recent years adding Nadine
Davies, Sarah Metzler, Kay Ehst, Carolyn Garrity & Timothy Wade. Wild Fox Farm now works with
a handful of restaurants in the Lehigh Valley area, sells at the Emmaus Farmers Market, and ships its products nationally out of its online store.
So, friends, every
day do something
that won’t compute.

To provide our local food community with fresh and delicious food while regenerating the land.
To bring 1000 acres of the Butter Valley and its immediate surrounding agricultural region into regenerative agricultural management in order to preserve the long-term quality and viability of its community, ecological systems and, most importantly, its soil.
Animals play an integral role in a holistic farm system. From rotating the animals on cover cropped vegetable fields, rotationally grazing pastures, recycling bedding as compost, food waste nutrient cycling, to the simple pleasure of grazing animals in the pasture, Wild Fox Farm would not be as viable economically or ecologically without such a diverse and integrated system.
Every animal at Wild Fox Farm has ample room to roam, forage, interact, bask in the sun and express their true nature. All the animals have access to fresh clean water. The sheep are 100% grass fed and the chickens and pigs eat organically grown grain. Managed in this dynamic way, these animals never need antibiotics, added hormones.
