About

Established in 2008

we are

Copper Kettle Farms is currently a small farm in Gettysburg, PA.  We teach workshops on small-game butchering, herbalism, soil building and small acerage homesteading.

Copper Kettle Farms is run by Crystal and Donald, both avid homesteaders and gardeners.  Crystal is a fifth-generation farmer, and Donald has a passion for raising heritage small-game and heirloom variety produce. Along with Crystal’s dad, this team is a powerhouse for green thumbing alongside nature.

We always welcome visitors to our small farm to pick up eggs at any time with our external fridge. When we expand at a new location, we’ll welcome visitors any time during the day while we’re working the farm.

If you have any questions about what we’re doing, don’t hesitate to contact us, check out our workshop schedule, and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

We look forward to meeting you!

Crystal, Donald & Edward
