Know Your Organic Producers!

Meet Amy Warner and Toby Stockford of Old Narrow Gauge Farm in Alna. Amy and Toby raise and breed heritage Gloucestershire Old Spots pigs for registered breed stock and pork and are members of The Livestock Conservancy. They also offer eggs from their mixed flock of free range hens. You can find their products at Bath summer and winter farmers' markets, Boothbay farmers' market, local restaurants and the Alna Store. They also offer some CSA options in conjunction with other Alna farms. "We are happy to raise livestock in a manner that benefits the health and well-being of the animals," say the Stockfords, "especially the focus on management practices that restore, maintain and enhance ecological harmony that organic farming intends. We feel that comes though in our quality breed stock and in the flavor and caliber of our heritage pork and eggs." Find Old Narrow Gauge Farm at oldnarrowgaugefarm.com and on Facebook and Instagram.
