Why Organic, Sustainable Farming Matters | Portrait of a Farmer

Most pro-organic documentaries make their point by taking stabs at the cruelty and other evils involved in the world of industrialized farming. In this short documentary portrait, Jesse Straight, owner of Whiffletree Farm, shows us a different approach. As he gestures to the beautiful landscapes that surround us he explains, "being a farmer is special because this is my office. You spend your day making animals happy...you get to do things that help the things around you thrive".

Welcome to Whiffletree Farm

Farmers Jesse and Liz Straight began raising pastured broiler chickens and turkeys in 2009 under the name "Jesse Straight's Pastured Poultry." As of 2011, we added free-foraging pork, grass-finished beef, and pastured laying hens to our repertoire. In early 2012, we moved the entire farm operation to the rambling acres of historic Whiffletree Farm. It is our joy to be living and farming in Jesse’s hometown of Warrenton. We are proud to serve many families and restaurants throughout Virginia.
