In 2007, Jeni and Daniel Dover started Darby Farms to cure his body and mind of constant fatigue and depression after a life time of eating dead food and 2 1/2 years of being a vegetarian/vegan. Utilizing 3 acres of pasture owned by his wife's family in Monroe, GA, Daniel resolved to feed himself, family, friends and neighbors with nutrient dense foods. First starting with a market garden, moving next to laying hens and then to meat chickens on those 3 acres, Daniel learned the thrill and excitement of growing your own food and its tribulations.
After realizing the need for more land, in 2010 the farm expanded and we leased a house with 50+ acres of pasture, mixed hard wood and pine, near Athens, GA. Since 2017 Darby Farms has resided on 80 acres in Union Mills, NC.
We love living symbiotically with the land here in the foothills of North Carolina.
