Eric and Keenann Rozendaal own The Rockville Market Farm where they use chickens to build fertility in the soil that they then use to grow butternut squash. They peel butternut squash on the premise and use the seeds to finish pigs. Come tour their facilities and learn about their innovative production techniques. BYOB and BBQ to follow (food provided). The Rockville Market Farm includes 25 acres of vegetables, 2000 laying hens, 2000 meat birds, 50 pigs, and 6 greenhouses.
