FREE UNION GRASS FARM

FREE UNION GRASS FARM

Free Union Grass Farm is a diversified livestock farm operated by Joel Slezak and is located near the Free Union community in Albemarle County, VA. Using rotational grazing practices, the farm, which Joel started in 2010 with his then-partner Erica Hellen, produces pastured chicken and duck, free-range eggs, 100% grass-fed beef, and forest-fed pork. The farm received a 0% loan in February 2019 to cover the costs of professional banners and marketing materials for their farmer's market booth, and roll-out nest boxes for their laying hens, which make it exponentially easier to collect, clean, and package chicken eggs.
