“A farm of families”

Dutch Hollow Farm was established in 1976 by third-generation farmer Paul Chittenden and his wife, Melanie. The couple is in partnership with their three sons, Alan, Brian and Nathan, who were raised on the farm, along with their sister, who farms in Australia. Well over a dozen family members are involved. On our farm we have three generations working together,” explains Brian. “Cousins team up to work together, Grandpa supervises the youngsters, and in the end we are happy we have each other to rely on. We consider ourselves a farm of families.

Starting the next generation early.
Paul and Melanie Chittenden work with their three sons.
"We chose to be farmers because our passion is to care for our animals and the soil."
