ABOUT J&L GREEN FARM
J&L Green Farm is operated by a husband and wife team, Jordan and Laura Green. They raise forest-raised pork, grass-fed beef and lamb, pastured poultry, turkey, and pastured eggs. J&L Green Farm also sells other products, including spices and skincare products. Jordan and Laura manage their own farm as well as multiple other farms in the Shenandoah Valley, healing the land by employing sustainable farming practices.
As specific set of agricultural principles governs the farm products that Jordan and Laura raise and sell. First, they are committed to raising animals in natural habitats and treating them humanely. Their animals are not given antibiotics, hormones, or steroids at sub-therapeutic levels for purposes of growth promotion. For animals that don’t live on pasture alone, feed is always a GMO-free ration. J&L Green Farm products receive praise for quality, color, and taste from their butchers, chefs, and customers.
Jordan has been involved with agriculture in some way for most of his life. He spent his childhood in upstate New York where he helped grow the family’s garden and raise their egg-laying chickens. By the time he was a teenager, Jordan was managing a herd of dairy goats, raising pastured poultry, helping with his mother’s large gardens, and working in his father’s landscaping business. After an apprenticeship at Polyface Farms and five years of service in the U.S. Marine Corps, Jordan and Laura started their own farm in Edinburg, Virginia.
Laura grew up in central Texas on her parents’ small farm. The family also had a honey distribution business. Before starting the farm with Jordan, Laura worked in the restaurant business, banking, and vacation property management. As a partner with Jordan in the current farm operation, Laura is in charge of the buying clubs, farmers markets, and wholesale purchases, while also caring for their three active, young children.
