Who we are
Thorpe's Organic Family Farm is a certified organic, biodiverse farm located outside of East Aurora, NY, near the city of Buffalo. Our farm is owned and managed by us- Mike and Gayle Thorpe, along with our six children- Jeremiah, Abraham, Elijah, Abigail, Naomi, and Hannah. The grandchildren (Levi, Janie, Iyla, Noah, William and Kyleigh) help out as well. We are blessed with a faithful farm staff/extended family too, and couldn't accomplish what we do without them!
We focus on growing certified organic produce using sustainable farming methods in order to improve the soil life of our land, and the health of the community around us. We do not use any chemical herbicides, pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, or otherwise dangerous chemicals. Instead, we employ time-tested farming methods such as organic fertilizers, beneficial insects, cover crops, frequent crop rotation, and organic rock powders and minerals to improve soil life and nutrients.
"And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat." Genesis 1:29
