Springwood Organic Farm is a 100% grass-based dairy farm. We produce certified organic milk for Organic Valley, and also produce cheese, beef, turkeys, broilers, and hay. Springwood is a pioneer in organic and regenerative livestock practices, and we strive towards ever-improving the health, well-being, and quality of our animals and products. As caretakers of God’s creation, we are driven by the desire to improve environmental stewardship, animal welfare, good business for our community, and our family values.
In 1983 Roman Stoltzfoos took over the family farm and eventually began applying organic methods. The farm rejuvenated and began to thrive with this organic approach. Amidst much skepticism, organic turkeys were added to the livestock in the late ’80s when organic agriculture was seldom practiced.
Dwight Stoltzfoos grew up on Springwood Farm in Kinzers, PA as the oldest of 11 children. He assisted his father during the 90’s in the gradual transition to becoming certified organic, and later implementing 100% grass-fed grazing practices. In 2007 Dwight took on the herd and crop management role and in 2022 purchased Springwood Farm, successfully transitioning the farm to its fourth generation of family ownership.
Dwight, Brenda, and our nine children are kept busy with the 250 cow 100% grass-fed organic dairy and are members of Organic Valley/CROPP’s Grassmilk program. Springwood Farm is an amazing place to raise our family, and we are motivated by pushing towards regenerating the soils under our management via adaptive grazing, silvopasture installations, and adequate rest periods.
Organic, regenerative, grass-based farming is a passion of the Stoltzfoos Family and we strive to keep at the cutting edge of these methods. As a result Springwood Organic Farm has become a model of stewarding opportunities of the present for future generations.
