Our History

Throughout the 1900’s the majority of Amish families made their living from farming. By the turn of the century, due to inflation, skyrocketing land prices, and highly mechanized agriculture, less than 10 percent were full time farmers.

Green Field Farms is a cooperative dedicated to sustainable agriculture for the horse farming communities of Amish and conservative Mennonite people. The organization was founded in 2003 by a small group of Amish farmers and business men with a concern for our future generations. The cooperative was formed to revitalize our family farms by providing customers like you fresh and nutritious food, and a brand you can trust.

    We strive to work in partnership with all GFF members to foster economic stability for our families, farms, and businesses. We work together in the common interest of all, yet respect the ownership, needs, and duties of each member as independent business people.
  2. Culture
    Our way of life is important to us. All decisions and actions are made to ensure our tenets and teachings are enhanced and preserved for generations to come.
  3. Community
    We respect all peoples within and outside our community. We believe it is always best to seek ways to improve not just the Amish community, but the community at large.
