Spiral Path Farm logoThis months Featured Farmers are Mike & Terra Brownback, the founders of Spiral Path Farm - a certified organic vegetable farm in Perry County, PA since 1978. They are both first generation farmers. The first 15 years on farm were spent with a farrow- to- finish hog operation, with grains/hay crops, before transitioning to organic vegetable farm in 1994. Today, two grown sons, Will and Lucas Brownback, both farm with the family on 300 certified organic acres, about 85 acres in produce, 5 acres under greenhouse vegetable production and 13,000 square feet of transplant production for on- farm use.
