We have created this site for friends, customers, and family to find out what is happening at Setter Run Farm. In 2010 we embarked on major remodeling to our home.  You can find out more by checking the History and Renovation tabs at the top of the page.


We look forward to your visit!

We are a small family farm that grows vegetables and pasture raises chickens. We also have a small flock of 60 laying hens that happily provide eggs. From about April-December we raise 10 steers on our pasture.
