Hard Earth Farm

Tended with love, nourished with care, reaped with gratitude.

 - Our farm motto.

 

Welcome to the official website of Hard Earth Farm!

 
We're a family-owned and operated farm in Modoc, South Carolina. We are deeply committed to the causes of sustainability and health, with a reverence for the Earth which touches all that we do. 
 
The patch of that Earth which nominally belongs to us is 140 acres of South Carolina. With the recognition that we own it only in name, we've used 45 of those acres to build our pastures, with the remaining land protected under environmental easement.
 
We draw all of our water (including that used by the garden and the animals) from springs on our property, and run our graywater through an extensive filter system that renders it safe to return to the water table. We also compost and use composting toilets, so very little goes to waste on Hard Earth Farm.
 
We've created this website to allow the web-traversing public to learn more about who we are and what we do. From here we can share anecdotes and photos, advertise our wares, and perhaps even provide or receive advice about farming and sustainable living.
 
We are also on Facebook!  Please visit us there at https://www.facebook.com/HardEarthFarm
