Beetlebung is a historic 5+ acre farm situated in the heart of Chilmark, on the Island of Martha’s Vineyard. This land was lovingly farmed by four generations of the Fischer Family, from 1961 through 2018. As its new owners and stewards, The Farm Group, we are committed to preserving the agrarian nature of Chilmark and hosting a space where farming, food and craft can intersect and spark exploration and discovery.
This first year, we are getting to know our piece of earth. We are in the process of renewing this iconic property, building infrastructure and soil that to support a small-scale, biologically diverse, organic farm. Using regenerative agriculture principles and a low-tech farming approach, Beetlebung plans to grow vegetables, herbs, flowers and berries in our 1+ acre cultivated field. Look for our harvests at our honor farm stand and at the West Tisbury Farmer’s Market.
Through the seasons, we will be evolving to meet the needs of our land and our community, with the goal of growing fertile ground for food and creativity.
