Crestwood Family Farms is located in Woodstock, IL, a farming community in the heart of the midwest. Our guiding principle is that food should be good. Good for you and good for the land. Also, it is grown and raised in a natural way. We apply this standard to our local suppliers and partner farms as well, who are also family farms. Our food is raised using sustainable farming methods. In fact, all our activities are based on this goal, so we carefully integrate natural habitat into the farming environment. We believe it is important to not deplete nor harm the land while farming it. This means that while profitable use of the land is important (after all, it’s not very sustainable otherwise), we are concerned about long-term habitat and wildlife just as much as near-term yield and agricultural productivity.A balanced approach to wildlife, habitat, and agriculture – that’s sustainability in action.
