Welcome to Whitesel Family Farms
On this site in 1850 the farm was established in the rich fertile soil of the Ohio Twin Creek watershed. Water is abundant throughout the system, the water table is high and one of the tributaries releases water from the ground onto the farm as a healthy creek system that supports an abundant amount of life that is the foundation for the rich soil of the property.
Our family moved onto the farm in 2007 with the purpose of transitioning the land once again into a regenerative system using practices and processes that produce food as it is meant to taste. While spending many years in the food business selling commercial food equipment I had the opportunity to experience firsthand how our food is produced. Part of the job was to tour numerous concentrated animal feeding operations and processing plants across the country. It soon became apparent that while these facilities reduced costs and created efficient processes, something was missing. Gone were the animals connection to the soil, grass, fresh air and sunshine. Gone were the relaxed days the animal spent lounging and being connected to and part of the earth’s regenerative systems.
