Stoneboat Farm is a sustainable, horse powered farm.

 

Brothers Aaron and Jesse Nichols work with their horse team, Gale and Esther, to produce transitional vegetables outside Portland Oregon.

Our model of farming is unique and we invite you to learn more about our projects as we

  • Grow our sustainable farm, producing unique and staple vegetables for restaurants, CSA and markets.

  • Grow beautiful decorative flowers in symbiosis with our vegetables.

  • Rotate chickens and turkeys on our land to build fertility and raise happy birds.

  • Move to on-farm sources of fertility and labor by using Belgian draft horses to replace tractor tasks

  • Guard our vegetables and turkeys from predation with Matsu and Ozzie, our Great Pyrenees
