About Our Farm

Better with Thyme is a family farm, inspired by permaculture ideals and focused on self-directed education


Moving from the NYC area, our family purchased farmland in the eastern panhandle of West Virginia. We are building our dream one step at a time. Our hope is to create a place to regenerate both the land and the people who live on it.

We are developing the land in a way that allows children who are self-directed learners to participate and shape the environment as partners with the adults.

We are looking for one or two other families who share our ideals of permaculture, non-violent communication and self directed education to live with us. If you’re interested, please contact us!

Our farm is primarily pasture and we are beginning to add gardens and trees as well as starting to manage the wooded areas of the farm. We are raising a variety of animals and our goal is to blend the pasture and wooded areas into a silvopasture style agroforestry system.

After nearly two years of being off the grid, we were finally connected to electric and Internet service at the farm and we have started to update our website.

We are currently offering hatching eggs for local pickup and we ship throughout the US. We also occasionally have livestock guardian dog puppies available.

We hope to begin updating our blog and Vlog in the near future. We will also resume the monthly farm updates via email as soon as we’re able to. Please join our mailing list to follow our progress!
